Extroverts and Introverts Unite: A Round Table Discussion On Navigating the World Together
February 22, 2023 at 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm EST
Start time where you are: Your time zone couldn't be detected
The conversation on introversion and extroversion has been around for decades. But how do we apply this concept in real time, leading to better expectations of yourself — and others?
Join host Crystal Duan in a discussion on how to refine your relationship with both your internal and external world, and how to better understand the people around you.
Even if you think you understand the average person who’s quieter or more outgoing than you… here’s a chance to go even deeper.
We’ll navigate the inner workings of how people manage their energy levels, people’s relationships with socializing, and how social anxiety plays into both of sides, regardless.
We’ll discuss the origins of Introversion and Extroversion (terms coined by Carl Jung and popularized by the Myers-Briggs personality type indicator), and read excerpts from popular books like Quiet by Susan Cain and The Genius of Opposites by Jennifer Kahnweiler.
It’s also a good time to share your candid frustrations with yourself and others, and how you’re dealing with them. The goal of this salon will be to come away with a cathartic conversation and better ways of understanding ourselves and others. (And the “ambiverts” will also have a place at the table!)
- What are the strengths you find with your “mode of being”?
- What are the ways you’ve had to “learn” what doesn’t come naturally to you? (Introversion vs extroversion)
- What are the struggles of your mode of being?
- How have you learned to set boundaries with yourself and others — whether externally or internally?
- What are your curiosities about the “other” mode of being?
- In what ways do you envy the other?
