Special test for teens!

To answer the question, which camp – extroverts or introverts – do you belong to, you need to calculate the sum of the answers and in questions 1, 3, 8, 10, 13, 17, 22, 25, 27, 39, 44, 46, 49, 53 , 56 and no answers in questions 5, 15, 20, 29, 37, 41, 51.

If the sum of points

from 0 to 10, then you are an introvert – closed inside you;

From 15 to 24 – you are an extrovert – common, turned to the outside world;

From 11 to 14 – you are ambivert – communicate when you need it.

To determine the coefficient of emotional stability, you should calculate the sum of answers and questions 2, 4, 7, 9, 11, 14, 16, 19, 2, 23, 26, 28, 31, 33, 35, 38, 40, 43, 45, 47, 50, 52, 55, 57 (see chart).

If the number of answers is "yes"

From 0 to 10, then you are emotionally stable;

From 11 to 16 – you are emotional impressionable;

From 17 to 22 – there are separate signs of the nervous system loosening;

From 23 to 24 – you face a nervous breakdown, neurosis.

Extroverts are a type of personality (or behavior) that is oriented in its manifestations outside, towards others.

For extroverts characteristic behavior in which a person seeks to:

communicating with people

attention from others,

participation in public speaking,

participation in crowded events and parties.

Extroverts are charged with energy from the outside world – from actions, people, places and things. They are wasteful of energy. Long periods of inaction, inner contemplation, or loneliness, or communication with only one person deprive them of the meaning of life. Nevertheless, extroverts need to supplement the time they spend in action with simple intervals of being, otherwise they will be lost in the whirlwind of feverish activity. Extroverts have much to offer our society: they express themselves easily, are focused on results, love the crowd and action.

Extroverts are like solar panels. For them, being alone or being inside is like staying under heavy, dense clouds. Solar batteries need to recharge the sun – extraverts for this need to be in public. Like introversion, extroversion is a temperament with a constant pattern of action. It can not be changed. You can work with her, but not against her.

An extrovert can be an excellent master of ceremonies, an organizer (often on a volunteer basis), an official, people manager, an artist, or an entertainer.

Introverts – the type of personality (or behavior), focused inward or on themselves.

At its core, introversion is a type of temperament. This is not at all what shyness or estrangement, it is not a pathology. In addition, this property of the person is not subject to change, even if you very much want. But you can teach him how to work with him, not against him.

Trait Perspective Psychology

Introverts are characterized by behavior that is more associated with comfortable loneliness, internal reflections and experiences, creativity, or observation of the process.

The most important distinctive feature of introverts is the source of energy: introverts draw energy from their inner world of ideas, emotions and impressions. They conserve energy. The outside world quickly puts them in a state of over-excitement, and they have an unpleasant feeling when something is “too much.” This can manifest itself in exuberance or, conversely, in apathy. In any case, they need to restrict social contacts in order not to be completely devastated. Nevertheless, introverts need to supplement the time spent alone, the time when they go out into the outside world, otherwise they may lose their sense of perspective and interrelations with other people. Introverts able to balance the energy needs, possess stamina and perseverance, can look at things independently, concentrate deeply and work creatively.

Introverts are like a rechargeable electric battery. They need to periodically stop, stop wasting energy and rest to recharge. It is the ability to charge and provide introverts less exciting environment. In it, they restore energy. Such is their natural ecological niche.

Introvert can be an excellent scientist, researcher, observer, writer or individual entrepreneur. If the extrovert needs the presence of other people for comfort, then the introvert is comfortable working alone.

Ambivert (in psychology) – a person who has an average on the scale of introversion – extroversion. Extraversion means conversion.

Explanation of the test for teenagers.

Determination of the type of temperament.

If there is a person in your environment around whom everything falls, collapses, flies, rings and breaks, and his voice is heard so loud that you can hear it in the farthest corners, then he probably belongs to choleric. It does not give in to the pressure, it’s more likely that it will start up in such a way that it will not seem a little. There is no need to push at it or start it at all – it will explode without additional help from your side. And when “Ostap will carry”, then just hold on! "Light tank" as described her boyfriend – choleric one of the girls.

Choleric is mobile, does not keep himself waiting, when it is necessary to invent something, to offer, to take the initiative. The famous psychiatrist V. Garbuzov claims that the ancient natural-biological function of choleric persons is the conquest of new spaces for the flock (tribe, state, family). So keep this in peaceful home walls! It is not surprising that he strives to run away somewhere all the time. Not from you, of course, runs. And to the new, unexplored battles

In most cases, modesty is not a noticeable feature of choleric. Confidence in many choleric turns into self-confidence. Finish, think out, grind is not very fond of, although, if seriously carried away, stop it hard. In courtship, this is also very noticeable.

He does not like to wait. Failures are perceived as a challenge to fate – or it acts feverishly, or falls into apathy. In general, the companion of such a man is to get used to his mood swings, hot temper, periodic wordiness. If he speaks, it is problematic to interrupt him; if he pouts in the corner, it is also difficult to stir him up. Well, at least explain what it is (melancholic rarely capable of this). Predicting his reaction to something new is almost impossible – he is not predictable!

Such a “present” moves specifically: quickly, impulsively, it seems that he has too many hands, elbows and knees. He usually grabs, tugs and throws. Hugs fit the temperament (carefully with the spine and ribs!). It is difficult for him to sit broadly and comfortably in a chair or on a chair — he will rather sit down on the edge, like an eagle on a precipice is about to take off! All he needs right away. And a lot … Do not try to put on him a "muzzle" of decency, it will grow into neurasthenia, neurosis. Do you need a mentally injured husband? Then give him a maneuvering field, a shelf with things you don’t value much, a couple of enemies, a target for conquest and less often lock it in four walls. Give him happiness to run after him, occasionally reward with ardent dates. In the end, there is a big benefit from him: if someone starts pestering you, the choleric person will smash him before you react. So a taboo free space will soon form around you, like around a royal persona.

The sanguine person is somewhat like a choleric person, but he is more suitable for scouts – he has a good control of himself, he is balanced, he does not climb on the rampage. If there is any bright trait, then this is an even optimism and efficiency. Sanguine confidence is adequate, mobility does not threaten the interior, and determination depends little on mood. If a sanguine person has ideas, he considers it natural to bring their implementation to a logical end. If the situation is heating up, he, unlike choleric person, not only becomes collected, but does not lose his sense of humor. Maybe jokes, jokes defuse the atmosphere. Not only a characteristic actor, but also a universal actor can turn out from a sanguine person – he has good emotions, loud speech, live intonations, various facial expressions. It is easier for a sanguine person to be known as the soul of a company, an instigator and a pet – he is sociable, but not intrusive; confident but not aggressive leader, active but not fussy. Loves the company, it is easy to get acquainted, in the home hostel is pleasant. It switches easily, does not get stuck on problems, hence what is called ease of character. Quarreling over trifles is not inclined, and indeed easily appeased – in a word, cutie! The natural role of the sanguine person is the arrangement of “infrastructure” – relations between tribesmen, management, social well-being. Therefore, the sanguine person is quite convenient as a husband, but still has a couple of drawbacks. For example, his tastes, interests, and inclinations do not differ much in consistency. Can be quite loving. Around the sanguine, as the planets around the sun, usually spinning fans. Sanguine enjoys a society of the opposite sex – he literally basks in the rays of his own eloquence and charm. “Well, how can I drive them away, dear, I can’t deprive these lovely girls YOURSELF! It will be too hard for them ”- such reasoning with a greater or lesser degree of self-confidence is characteristic of sanguine persons.

Work for teenagers sanguine need such where there would be a variety of activities, business trips, change of activity. Can change jobs in search of one where it would be interesting. If she does not find one, she frankly misses and complains. If we are carried away – then another thing. He is able to work, but this ability is not always realized. He likes to command more than to obey, prefers to decide for others, to put people in places. Therefore, if life does not correct the sanguine person, optimism turns into jerky, burning through life; leadership – in tyranny, the desire to crush those who are weaker and depends on him.

Phlegmatic calculation is also quite simple. He is the opposite of choleric. In the class – “does not violate”, among women it doesn’t go around with the gogol, in the dispute – imperceptible, the last to fight. True, if he enters, it will be harder to stop him than the choleric person. Because the main feature of the phlegmatic person is inertia, that is, it swings for a long time, and when it shakes, it cannot stop itself.

Did you see at the station how the loaded train starts to move? If you compare with a passenger car – is there a difference? Can you imagine how to stop this most loaded train at full speed? And stop the car under the same conditions? The inertia of the freight car is many times greater than that of a passenger car. Now you understand what a phlegmatic person is just starting to do something, and a phlegmatic person who is already seriously interested in something. These are two big differences. And you may not recognize your own husband in these two states. Yesterday it was a lazy fat boy lying on the sofa and without hurrying a kitchen conversion plan on a piece of paper; today, this is a woodworking machine that knows no rest, monotonously and measuredly giving out “to-the-hill” planed boards, details and interior items. Sometimes even for lunch you don’t get drunk – that’s how you get involved in the work! But the degree of diligence phlegmatic depends on education: and can be a worker, and lazy (just remember Oblomov)!

Another phlegmatic is convenient because with him in the apartment is quiet. He does not like to talk too much, and his voice is often not loud. Speech calm without emotions. According to the observations of A. P. Chekhov, "it is always serious, because it is too lazy to laugh." It is difficult to get him out of himself, he is not in a hurry to be offended. Things around him are in order, in his knowledge and capabilities, he is sure – and from a bare place such confidence is built, and on hard-gained experience and competent, unhurried calculations. Usually it doesn’t give itself to a dispute – if this dispute is interesting or if the disputants have stuck – you need a couple of weighty judgments. And again – silence. Natural and biological role of phlegmatic (according to V. Garbuzov) – arrangement of the territory “freshly conquered” by choleric people. Therefore, the following points are important for a phlegmatic husband:

the territory to which he came is his territory, and without any military actions;

No one bothers to settle in and equip it to your liking;

in this area, no one is in a hurry – everything has its time, and the phlegmatic person does almost nothing from the bay-flounder.

The phlegmatic person feels rhythms and cycles well, and monotonous work doesn’t bother him – he knows that summer gives way to autumn, and autumn – in winter, and you still have to plow in the spring. Even if it is a manager or a businessman, he looks like a “plowman” – stubborn, unhurried, measured and patient, he “sows” his modest or big business and skillfully cultivates. Though hail and snow – nature has no bad weather. Possessing a fine and vulnerable spiritual organization, regular natural disasters will not survive. And to lower hands – only to destroy the former work. Therefore, for the poetic subtleties – this is not a phlegmatic. The difficulties of life are not knocked out of his saddle; they are perceived by him simply as ordinary everyday turmoil. If around the noise and din, pitching and cannonade – phlegmatic able to work with little or no quality. Sometimes the phlegmatic even seem rude because of their lack of emotionality and thick-skinnedness.

And indeed, they are the most “thick-skinned” of all temperaments. You will not take them to "weakly", you will not fool unnecessary goods, you will not incline to a dubious deal. In the registry office, too, to drag a phlegmatic person under the influence of a rush is difficult – this is not a passionate choleric person or an enthusiastic sanguine person! But … oh! No one can so faithfully and long wait for the beloved, as a phlegmatic person. He is one of those Monogamous people who, having met youthful love in 10-20 years, as if nothing had happened, goes with her to the altar — he knew that he could not get anywhere from him! And the fact that the beloved is not so fresh is not the morning rose anymore, so do not drink water from the face, the main thing is that the person is the same.

Melancholic outwardly "masked" as phlegmatic – quiet, quiet, avoids unnecessary activity, does not differ in expressiveness. But it has at least two fundamental differences. His quietness and equanimity are purely external, and inside are nerves, like bare wires, hidden insults and doubts. The slightest fluctuations of the human field are fixed: he notices the half-views, half-smiles, breaths and movements of the eyebrows. Hears the grass grow. What is surprising that the cries, scandals, tears and, God forbid, life dramas bring him out of balance. And so when a melancholic person falls into a critical situation, he sometimes even loses the ability to think reasonably, and sometimes he just “hides his head in the sand”, like an ostrich. Not because he is stupid or irresponsible, but because the load on his sensitive nervous system is beyond. Just "fuses burn out" and the person is disconnected for a while. If he hadn’t turned off, he would have quickly got an appointment with a psychiatrist. So the old trick with "hooligans" in the alley with a melancholic does not pass. In a fight, he may climb (a man after all!), But then … You will have to spend soothing conversations for many hours, drink valerian, caress and comfort the melancholic. It is possible that he himself will run away from you – if he does not want to appear before Dame of the heart in such an unmanly form. And he can do nothing with himself – he is not a fighter by nature!

In addition, he is indecisive, unsure, to make a choice for him is a real torment! And to meet a lady of the heart is a real problem for melancholic. What wild psychological frills a melancholic lover should hold over herself in order to simply step up and learn the name and contact numbers of her passion! Yes, he owns and rarely meets. Large noisy companies melancholic re very much, avoids numerous contacts. In everyday life, one can fairly get his ability to take offense over trifles and react to minor troubles. Warmth and comfort requires more than other temperaments. The only good news is that you can expect the same from him. Melancholic is a true friend, poetic, subtle nature, easily feeling your mood. Do you want flowers, serenades, sighs under the moon? You are welcome! Only not very often pester with requests:

solve that poured another fundamental question;

select the type of deposit in the bank;

change the job he was used to;

agree on the repair of the roof (overhaul, transportation of baggage and
