------------ Perception MBTI Introversion refers to a tendency to prefer the world inside oneself. The more obvious features of introversion are reserve, distaste for social functions, and a love of privacy.

Extraversion is the tendency to look to the outside world, particularly people, for one's pleasures. Extraverts are generally sociable and they enjoy social activities, but they don't Five-factor model (FFM) One of the more prominent models in contemporary psychology is what is known as the five-factor model of personality.

Five Factor Extraversion - Introversion Extraversion is defined as a trait characterized by a broad disposition to experience positive affects to seek out and enjoy social experiences, and to have the energy to pursue

goals and be engaged in life's tasks Introversion (low in E) is described as quiet, reserved, retiring, shy, silent, withdrawn, with emotional blandness and over-control of impulses. Eysencks Trait Theory Hans Eysenck (1916-1998) Eysenck focused on normal and pathological populations. He felt that many traits are biologically

based and were shaped by evolutionary forces (e.g., extraversion, neuroticism). He used factor analysis to identify traits. Eysenck's Three Personality Factors: Extraversion (- Introversion). Neuroticism. Psychoticism. Extraversion -Introversion

Extraversion - Introversion: Introversion: tendermindedness; introspectiveness; seriousness; performance interfered with by excitement; easily aroused but restrained, inhibited; preference for solitary vocations; sensitivity to pain. Extraversion: toughmindedness;

impulsiveness; tendency to be outgoing; desire for novelty; performance enhanced by excitement; preference for vocations involving Extraversion-Introversion Measured by Eysenck Personality Questionnaire (EPQ) High extraversion: Talkative, outgoing, likes meeting new people and going to new places, active, bored easily, hates routine Low extraversion: Quiet, withdrawn, prefers being alone or with a few friends to large crowds, prefers

routines, prefers familiar to unexpected Extraversion-Introversion Eysencks theory Introverts have a higher level than extraverts of activity in the brains ascending reticular activating system (ARAS) People strive to keep ARAS activity at optimal levelintroverts work to decrease and avoid stimulation; extraverts work to

increase and seek out stimulation Extraversion-Introversion Eysencks theory Research indicates that introverts and extraverts are NOT different at resting levels, but introverts ARE more reactive to moderate levels of stimulation than extraverts This work led Eysenck to revise his theorythe difference between introverts and extraverts

lies in arousability, not in baseline arousal Extraversion-Introversion Eysencks theory When given a choice, extraverts prefer higher levels of stimulation than introverts Geen (1984): Introverts and extraverts choose different levels of stimulation, but equivalent in arousal under chosen stimulation

Extraversion-Introversion Eysencks theory Introverts and extraverts perform task best under their chosen stimulation level, poor when performing under a stimulation level chosen by the other group The Culture Variable

Western countries show a preference for Extraversion. Eastern countries show a preference for Introversion. United States has a strong preference for Extraversion. McCreas Map Ambivert?
