Can you imagine how these two people would get along in a committed relationship? What problems would you foresee between these two that stem from their apparently contradictory personalities?
How can two people overcome these inherent personality traits to achieve a harmonious, balanced, healthy relationship?
One is very polite yet introverted. The other is extremely honest, without the "polite" dressing and is extroverted. Their characters determine their ability to communicate effectively (or inability). Because one is more concerned with outward appearances and the other more concerned with inner workings, their communication stems from entirely opposite ends of the spectrum. How can they overcome this obstacle?
It is also possible however that the introverted person becomes jealous of the partner because they wish they were more like them! i.e. Confident
I'd take a small weekend vacation, and reconnect doing something both of you have never done before. Just because someone isnt displaying a certain type of emotion or isnt understanding you, doesn't mean they are incapable of it, it takes patience and effort, and a whole lotta love.
Why then do intoverts and extroverts attract? What an odd psychological thing to occur and yet people say that opposites attract naturally (kosmic Jack ). Is it because each sees something in the other that is lacking in themselves, or a trait that each would like to incorporate in their respective personalities? Only to discover that it is harder to mix oil with water than one had originally bargained for?
Should then the extrovert take the lead in the relationship by changing their own personality? By doing so, paving the way for the introvert to feel more confident and self-assured?
Can the extrovert become something he/she is not by sheer willpower and love?
Does the introvert recognize the turmoil his/her personality causes the partner? If so, does it further inhibit the introvert?
