change is nature.

people do evolve.

i’ve always classified myself as an extravert.

and tonight i looked up what that exactly meant.

according to dictionary.com

extravert
adjective
1. being concerned with the social and physical environment [syn: extrovert]
noun
1. (psychology) a person concerned more with practical realities than with inner thoughts and feelings [syn: extrovert] [ant: introvert]

so then i looked up introvert. and you get several definitions:

noun
1. (psychology) a person who tends to shrink from social contacts and to become preoccupied with their own thoughts [ant: extravert]
verb
1. fold inwards; “some organs can invaginate” [syn: invaginate]
2. turn inside; “He introverted his feelings”

which sounds nothing like me. but then there’s also this:

v. in·tro·vert·ed, in·tro·vert·ing, in·tro·verts

  1. To turn or direct inward.
  2. To concentrate one’s interests upon oneself.
  3. To turn a tubular organ or part inward upon itself.

n. (ĭn’trə-vûrt’)

  1. One whose thoughts and feelings are directed toward oneself.
  2. An anatomical structure that is capable of being introverted.

and i think to myself.

people do evolve.
