How to Determine Whether You’re an Introvert or Not

How to Tell If You Are an Introvert

In a gentle animation, the consistently insightful and thoughtful School of Life explains the traits of introverts and encourages recognizing the traits within oneself, if applicable. They also suggest how to nurture the balance between socializing and restorative time alone.

Many of us lead lives that are harder than they should be because we haven’t realised a basic thing about ourselves: that we are introverts.

We should dare to learn whether we belong in the introverted camp.
