    Default Question about extraverts and contradiction between inner and outer worlds

    Do any of you that type yourself as extraverts experience a contradiction between the outer and your inner worlds?

    Constantly. It's a tight rope to walk and a reason why occasionally I just wanna be alone. It can cause feelings like being left out, and not feeling at home on this planet

    do you mean is the person we represent different then the person only we know?

    if so...no not really. i mean i am the person i represent but i'm not only that.

    So what else are you? Do you have an idea about that? Don't be puzzled or anything, I'm just interested.

    Not really.. I feel like I present myself to the world as I am inside, and I interact with a wide variety of people without the apparent need to put on a facade for any of them. Although I don't readily display very strong emotions, they obviously do affect me and how I interact with the outside world. My realtor friend tells me that she has to fake confidence or "tell herself" that she's confident at times. I can't readily do that.

    Perhaps, then, I'm too honest about myself to the world..

    of course i know
    but people see me as this strong confident happy positive person...in person
    and i'm not so expressive with the opposite side of me....unless we have a more intimate relationship.

    I do feel that I am presenting who I am, most of the time. Sometimes I try to make myself more "user-friendly" meaning I'm less likely to express an angry or sad mood, or negative/unagreeable opinion, (or atleast try to soften it, or make light of it.) Like if I was sad I might complain but then follow with. "Sorry if i'm a debbie-downer."

    Since I am usually feeling happy and contented on the inside, this usually doesn't lead to a conflict.

    I don't think this has much to do with my extraversion though, so i'm not sure if that even answers the question properly.

    Somewhat. I have one, but I feel the need to communicate it. And, I want to let it out into the open.

    I can hardly imagine such a thing. My inner world is my world.
