World Introvert Day on January 2nd serves as an opportunity for people around the world to better understand and appreciate introverts.
An introvert is best defined as someone who focuses on internal feelings rather than external sources of stimulation.
The opposite of an introvert is an extrovert. There are less introverts in the world than extroverts.
It is estimated that between 25 and 40 percent of the population are introverts. They are often described as being quiet, reserved, and introspective.
Instead of receiving energy in social situations like extroverts do, introverts expend energy.
