Being able to understand different personality types is crucial to having good relationships. Extroverts, for example, are typically known to be the life of the party—they love being around other people and rarely hesitate to try something new. But being a social butterfly isn’t the end of the story.
Just because they're outgoing and bubbly doesn’t mean they’re happy 24/7. While an introvert may choose to cancel plans for the night in an effort to recharge, an extrovert should still go to the office happy hour—because, again, individuals with this type of personality thrive around others. In fact, if they don’t get enough human interaction, they’ll end up feeling pretty drained.
