Not all introverts are the same.
When you ask people what being an introvert means to them, their answers always vary. While some will tell you that it’s being a dreamer or sensitive person, others will tell you that its a person who loves solitude due to anxiety in social situations.
While Carl Jung did a great job of creating the Introvert-Extrovert spectrum, he didn’t provide any different types within the introvert category. The Big Five Personality Test tried to remedy this by labeling those who scored low on “Enthusiasm” and “Assertiveness” as introverts. But we all know that this is a very limited understanding of introversion and far from the truth.
In Jennifer Odessa Grime’s masters thesis, she created four different meanings of introversion: the Social, Thinking, Anxious, and Restrained introverts (forming the acronym STAR).
We have built on this STAR model by creating four different introvert archetypes. Take our free test below to see which of the four introvert archetypes is predominant in you.
