Extrovert

jung carl people

Extrovert, term used by Swiss psychiatrist Carl G. Jung to describe a person who prefers being surrounded by other people and much activity, as opposed to an introvert, who is happier with solitude and contemplation. While most people combine tendencies of both, Jung believed that one tendency or the other is generally predominant.
