Myers Briggs Extraversion Preference

Extraversion (E)

Key words: outer world • people • action • breadth

People who prefer the Myers Briggs Extraversion Preference are energized by active involvement in events, and they like to be immersed in a breadth of activities. They are most excited when they are around people, and they often have an energized effect on those around them. Extraverts like to move into action and to make things happen– extraverts usually feel very at home in the world.

With their orientation to the outer world, extraverts often find their understanding of a problem becomes clearer if they can talk out loud about it and hear what others have to say. Extraverts tend to talk ideas out while Introverts tend to think ideas out.

People who prefer the Myers Briggs Extraversion Preference may:

  • be seen as “go-getters” or “people-persons”
  • feel comfortable with and like working in groups
  • have a wide range of acquaintances and friends
  • can have many friends but few deep relationships
  • sometimes jump too quickly into activity and not allow enough time for reflection
  • sometimes forgets to pause to clarify the ideas that give aim or meaning to their activities
