Extroverts are talkative, outgoing persons or simply expressive people. Extroverts often feel energized when they socialize. They’re also action oriented, enthusiastic and at the same time a leader. But do you know that there are four classification or types of Extroversion? This theory was originally from Carl Jung’s personality theory “there are 4 different types of extroverts”. Carl Jung suggested that everyone falls somewhere on the spectrum of introversion and extroversion. Here are the 4 types of Extrovert.
Extroverted Sensors (ES)
Extroverted Sensors enjoys being stimulated by the information they pick up from the words of people that surrounds them. They uses five senses (See, hear, feel, taste and smell) to sense what is happenning and learn from the best of it. Extroverted sensors trust their own personal experience, first to know what is the truth.
Extroverted sensors prefer to engage on activities involving hands-on activities such as sports. These type of extroverts tend to make bond with others than having a thought-provoking conversation.
Extroverted sensors are Adventurous and great risk takers. Because they have a tendency of getting bored easily. Extroverted sensors also loves to meet new people and socializing. Examples of Extroverted Sensors are ESTJs, ESTPs, ESFJs, and ESFPs.
Extroverted Intuitors (EN)
Compare to Extroverted sensors, Extroverted intuitors are less likely to be extroverted. They are just the opposite of Extroverted sensors. Extroverted intuitors enjoy delving into abstract ideas and focusing on the what-if’s and possibilities. These type of extroverts are stimulated to friendly debates. Examples of Extroverted intuitors are ENTJs, ENTPs, ENFJs, and ENFPs.
Extrovert Feelers (EF)
These type of extrovert are passionate about forming new connections when they participate in social events. They are very accommodating and always looking out for others. They make sure that everyone is happy. Extroverted feelers are excellent conversationalist and can adapt between small talk and deep conversations. Example of Extroverted Feelers are ENFJs, ENFPs, ESFJs, and ESFPs.
Extroverted Thinkers (ET)
Extroverted thinkers are natural leaders due to their decisive and confident nature, they get energy from working hard to reach goals and dreams that make them feel accomplished. Examples of extroverted thinkers are ENTJs, ESTJs, ENTPs, and ESTPs.
We personally believe in Carl Jung’s suggestion that everyone falls somewhere in the spectrum of introversion and extroversion. You can feel it if someone is introverted or extroverted. Some people may usually say “He’s just talkative”. But in reality, that person just have extroverted personality.
