Introvert or Extrovert?

It’s summer, and you decide to have a barbeque. Who of your friends should you invite? You don’t want to bother inviting people who will not show up anyhow, but how can you tell to you to invite? You could invite the friends of yours that are extroverts, and let the introverts stay home.

Wikipedia says that an introvert is one who tends “to be low-key, deliberate, and relatively less engaged in social situations. They often take pleasure in solitary activities such as reading, writing, drawing, watching movies, and using computers.” In other words, people like this:

Who Can It Be Now - Men At Work

Wikipedia says that an extrovert is one who tends “to enjoy human interactions and to be enthusiastic, talkative, assertive, and gregarious. They take pleasure in activities that involve large social gatherings, such as parties, community activities, public demonstrations, and business or political groups.” In other words, people like this:

Let ‘Em In - Paul McCartney and Wings

I suggest that you invite the extroverts to your barbeque, and let your intovert friends read a good book.
