One of the most basic ways to describe people is in terms of introversion and extroversion. Introverts are characterized this way; They are generally low key, calm, and unexcitable--they like being alone or with only one or two other people. Extroverts, on the other hand, are described in the opposite way; They are outgoing and friendly, preferring to be with others than alone--they love excitement and adventure. In other words, you'll find introverts in such activities as: having dinner with a friend in a quiet restaurant, reading, listening to a favorite CD, or working on a hobby such as stamp collecting. Conversely, the extroverts will be: at a party or planning one, going to a sporting event with a group of friends and yelling the loudest, or looking for something new and exciting to do:with other people, of course.
