Personality can be defined as how an individual defines, thinks, or behaves.

Personality can be judged by how the person reacts or behaves to an event in a given frame of time, based on the environment. Broadly, human personality has been divided into two types: introverts and extroverts.

Introverts are people who prefer personal peace rather than too much social interaction. However, extroverts are opposites to that of an introvert. Ambiverts are those who have both the traits of an introvert and an extrovert. If you like reading about human psychology, you will find this article interesting.
