Who Doesn’t Want An Amazing Relationship?
Relationships can be amazing and satisfying, but making a relationship work takes more than date nights or shared interests. Relationships take time, compromise, connection, and commitment. Finding someone is hard enough, staying with them is even harder. Having romantic ideals about how relationships should work doesn’t help when “life happens.”
We’ve all heard that opposites attract; those opposites are usually introverts and extroverts. Introverts and Extroverts experience the world in different ways, and neither way of experiencing is better than the other…they are just different.
Introverts are internal processors. After and event, party, church or other social engagements they need time to decompress and process all that they have taken in and replenish their energy.
Extroverts are the opposite; they rely on external stimuli to feel engaged. They thrive in a group, and are people who can work a room.
When Things Are Working
Introverts love the energy and the communication style of the extrovert. They have someone they can engage with, and gets them out of the house to spend quality time together. The extrovert likes that the introvert has the ability to slow things down and cause them to reflect. They enrich each other’s lives.
When Things Are Not Working
When things are not working this causes stress in the relationship, and both deal with stress differently.
Introverts tend to avoid conflict, but when they have too they prefer to reflect first before they speak, choosing their words carefully. If they are forced to argue before they are ready they can end up exploding or imploding. If they have an opportunity to process things first, they can talk about where they stand in an authentic way.
Extroverts process things openly, and prefer to talk through a situation right away… to work it out now so it does not grow into a larger problem.
Do you want to better understand yourself and your mate’s personality/relationship style? Do you want to transform your relationship where you have deeper intimacy-heart, mind, and body?
