An extrovert is not capable of deep relationships

This myth is not confirmed by anything. You don't have to be an introvert to have a strong relationship, and you don't have to be an extrovert to have a lot of acquaintances.

Extroverts have an extensive social circle. Extroverts start conversations first and spend more time around people than introverts.

But this does not mean that extrovert relationships are superficial. A 2017 study published in the Journal of Research in Personality found no link between extraversion and relationship satisfaction. It is also a mistake to think that extroverts are happier than introverts. Read our study on the subject.

Extroverts are not sociopaths

The myth arose because sociopathy is confused with introversion. Introverts avoid noisy events because they want to be alone. And sociopaths are afraid of public condemnation.

An extroverted sociopath may love parties but worry they won't be there. Or invited out of courtesy.

Being an extroverted sociopath is hard: you get energy from communicating with people, and at the same time, you are afraid of their judgment. As a result, sometimes sluggish and bored, sometimes seized with fear. Read What you need to know when entering into a relationship with an extrovert.

Extroverts don't need to recharge

Everyone needs time to recharge their batteries — even the brightest extroverts. Regardless of our personalities, we must communicate (even introverts). But we need to be alone sometimes (even extroverts).

If you're tired after a party, conference, or wedding celebration, it's not because you're an introvert or extrovert but because you're human.
