When a tourist guide asks a tour group for volunteers to try something risky, it's usually extroverts who give it a go. Introverts on the other hand feel less excited over a surprise or risk.

These illustrations prove how extroverts and introverts have their own ways of processing things around them. There is no right or wrong way—both personalities go through different processes and coping mechanisms.
