You are considered affectionate and friendly if you have an outgoing personality. There are many upsides of being an extrovert. People are intimidated by you; your social life is on roll. You wouldn’t want to exchange it with anything in the whole wide world. But being an extrovert has its downsides too.
Here is the list of problems faced by an extrovert
1) Wrong Perception
Since you don’t think twice before speaking of what’s going inside your ‘full of thoughts’ head. You blurt out whatever you are feeling before fully processing your emotions. So, people think you are being rash or being too’ truthful’. Something which they can’t handle. Therefore, your respect in their eyes decreases. They judge you hard and fast.
You’re a friendly person, you love hanging out with people. Basically you’re a social animal. What you’re thinking is completely different from what you’re being perceived as. You are suddenly the person who ‘flirts’ around with everyone when you are just being polite or trying to have a conversation.
Since you are the life of the party, you’re NOT supposed to feel sad ever. According to other people, feelings like sad, depressed, upset doesn’t exist in your dictionary. So, you are not supposed to express these feelings. You’re the happy-go-lucky person. Being content and making other peeps laugh is your full time social job apparently.
4) Centre of Attention
Everyone thinks you crave attention and you need constant recognition. What people don’t understand is that you can’t help it. Being loud and talkative is in your nature, it runs through your veins. This leads to people thinking that you are just a snobbish little brat. Oh, the dilemma.
