When Extrovert Meets Introvert

Magic at Midlife: Your Relationship Roadmap for Romance After 40

Jennifer is a psychologist; Charles is a former Information Technology professional. Can you guess who is the extrovert, and who is the introvert? Extroverts gain energy from interacting with other people, and usually like to process information with others. Introverts generally gain energy from quiet time spent alone, and usually like to work things out themselves before sharing with others. When an introvert and an extrovert get together, it is really helpful to take some time to share how each person prefers to get information, make decisions, and spend time.
