The Science of Temperament: Introvert, Extrovert, or Ambivert?

Do you think of yourself as an introvert or an extrovert? Or have you discovered that you are an ambivert, a balanced person with some features of both personality types? At cocktail parties these days, there is talk that introverts are on the rise, but in truth there is no one “right” way to be – just ways that work best for each one of us. Nidhi Berry combines her expertise in human temperament with her psychotherapy training to explain how even a little bit of self-knowledge can influence every facet of our lives for the better.
