Jung introduce introvert and extrovert as an attitude of human. Attitude means how people react to some situation, or how people face some problems. People with this personality, or Introversion attitude mentioned by Jung, will face problems or situation with subjectivity. They will push their energy inside, rather then outside. They push they emotion, feelings, and also behavior into their own mind. So, people with introvert personality won’t show their emotion, and won’t show how they face their problems. Introversion is the state of being predominantly interested in one’s own mental self. Different wiht extrovert, focused on the outside world of objects, sensory perception and action.
People with this personality tends to be a loner. But inside, they have their own mind. They work from inside, not work from outside.
