As an introvert, this social distancing thing is kind of a walk in the part but if you’re an extrovert or an ambivert things might be a bit frustrating. As time passes those who thrive in social settings are getting pretty stir-crazy.
For those who might not be aware extroverts are people who thrive off social interactions. They tend to spend a lot of time out and about which right now isn’t possible. They don’t want or need much time alone and are usually very much active. Ambiverts are like that to an extent but also tend to spend time on their own and don’t mind being home. As an introvert, I am not very social and spend most of my time with very few people as is.
Sure, I still like to go out here and there but it’s not something I cannot do without and ‘self-quarantining’ is basically living life as I normally would. If you’re an extrovert or an ambivert and you’re having a hard time. I have some tips that may help you get through without feeling as if you’re going crazy. While not all of these tips will work for everyone they might help some of you.
