What are Children Extroversion and Introversion



Extroversion is the name given to a personality type whose attention and energies are directed outward from the self, as opposed to introversion, in which interest is directed primarily toward one’s own self.

In the latter condition there is a reduction of interest in the outside world. Naturally, there are gradations and degrees of both personality types, and there are times in the life of any person when he may become more introverted than he normally is (states of grief, sadness, depression). The degree to which these states become exaggerated and, therefore, pathological is a criterion for normal or abnormal mental states.
