When stressed, extravert become agressive, impulsive, restless, changeable.
When they are stable, they are carefree, responsive, optimistic.
While unstable introverts tend to be unsociable, pessimistic, unfocused, moody.
If not, they are calm, reliable and thoughtful.

I’ll end this with an interesting quote by bill gates.
“I think introverts can do quite well. If you’re clever you can learn to get the benefits of being an introvert.
You better hire some extroverts… and tap into both sets of skills in order to have a company that thrives”- Bill Gates.
Do you know any introvert/extravert leader in malaysia?
I know Faizul Ridzuan is an introvert..
