Who are introverts?

A person who favors quiet, low-stimulation environments is an introvert. After engaging in social activities, introverts often feel exhausted and need time alone to recharge. This is significant because the way in which the brains of introverts and extroverts both react to dopamine is different.

One of the pioneers in the definition of introversion in a psychological context was the Swiss psychiatrist Carl Gustav Jung. He proposed in his 1921 book, "Psychological Types," that every person can be classified as either an introvert or an extrovert, and compared introverts to the Greek god Apollo, who sheds light on understanding. He asserted that because introverts are preoccupied with their inner world of reflection, dreams, and vision, they may not be interested in participating in other people's activities. Since that time, a larger number of psychologists have created more comprehensive theories about introverts and introversion.
