Welcome to a new week on the Hope Rescue Podcast. We are wrapping up our series on the topic of personality traits. Over the past two weeks, Tim and Kimberly have shared the difference between introverts and extroverts. This week, they are focusing on what it means to be an ambivert.
What is the difference between introverts, extroverts, and ambiverts?
If you are energized and refueled by being alone, you are likely an introvert.
If you are energized and refueled by social connections, you are likely an extrovert.
If you are energized by purpose, whether alone or with others, you are likely an ambivert.
Mark 6:30-32 says, "The apostles returned to Jesus and told him all that they had done and taught. And he said to them, “Come away by yourselves to a desolate place and rest a while.” For many were coming and going, and they had no leisure even to eat. And they went away in the boat to a desolate place by themselves.”
It’s not wrong to desire alone time. Even Jesus told his disciples to spend time alone resting and taking a break from service and social interactions.
4 Signs You’re an Ambivert
You enjoy people, but you need time alone.
You are outgoing in certain contexts.
You can work with a team after personal research is completed.
You can process out loud or internally.
No matter your personality type, whether extrovert, introvert, or ambivert, God didn’t make a mistake when he wired you that way. Lean into who God created you to be, and don’t hide or feel shame about who you were created to be.
