Living In Harmony With Yourself: Introverts and Extraverts

January 18, 2022, 7:30 - 8:30 PM

Many of our patients find themselves in situations where they’re uncomfortable and don’t know why. They feel like something’s off or not quite right. Or they sense what the problem is but keep trying to be what others - especially parents, siblings, teachers, friends and eventually bosses and spouses - want or expect them to be. 
 
Instead of honouring their feelings, they do what they feel is necessary to fit in. But always at a cost. One such internal conflict involves personality traits, specifically introversion and extraversion.


LEARNING OBJECTIVES: 
 
You will learn:           
  • Carl Jung’s definitions when he introduced the terms in 1921
  • The biological basis of introversion and extraversion
  • The implications of these tendencies for behaviour, social interaction, work and the effect of caffeine, alcohol and drugs
  • How patients can use this information for themselves and in relationship to one another
