Extroverts are seen as loud, gregarious, socially activate people who always enjoy parties and being part of the crowd and you will surely meet a lot of them when you travel. While that may be true, but that is not the true meaning of extroversion. Basically, an extrovert is a person who is energized by being around other people and being alone for a period of time tickles their restless bone. This is the opposite of an introvert who is energized by being alone.
