How to love being an extrovert and own your truth? First, acknowledge your energy which you exude tenfold. It is all about energy flow, and when you operate from your truth, you have the power to change cultures, start a movement, and move mountains; think Reese Witherspoon, Michelle Obama, and Taylor Swift.
You probably don’t know this about me, but I’m ENTP, an Inquisitive type. I live in a dualistic world of introversion (49%) and extroversion (51%). I share this because it’s foundational to what I know is my truth, my passion, and my purpose.
I believe we co-create with the Divine creator before incarnating. We choose our specific personas knowing that our personality type possesses the ideal traits we need to support our soul evolution during this lifetime. My work is to help you “resee Myers-Briggs through the lens of a spiritual looking glass,” so I need to understand the energy flow of introverts and extroverts. My persona is ideal for my soul mission. And so is YOURS!

Your Personality Is Attached to Your Soul’s Evolution
My passion and purpose are to help you rethink personality typing with a spiritual understanding. Divine intelligence knew I would need to experience being in the world using introvert and extrovert behaviors to fulfill my purpose. So, of course, my personality supports my soul’s intentions allowing me to step into my power, passion, and purpose.
And pleeease, just because I am an extrovert, I don’t have a clue as to what your world looks like as an extrovert. Here’s why. Your world was and is created from childhood stories, life experiences, challenges, and loving and not-so-loving relationships… I can’t imagine your world; even if I tried, I believe it would be stereotypical and oversimplified. UGH! But I do have an understanding of “general” patterns of behavior. And that’s as far as I can go, but it’s a lot.
What I do know is we are all created from a Divine light of love. As pop spiritualists say, “spiritual beings having a human experience.”
Carl Jung saw extroverts’ focus as outwardly directed, leading them to act more extensively. –– Carl Jung, psychiatrist, psychoanalyst, and the founder of analytical psychology.
How to Love Being an Extrovert and Own Your Truth
So let’s get back to the question. So how do you, as an extrovert, own your truth? It’s through observation and awareness of your energies. If you feel good about an outer world experience, your energy lets you know, as you feel vibrant and alive –– truth-based energy. When the energy is hesitant and you feel off –– you’re headed into fear-based energy. Can you begin to see once you realize the truth of who you really are, you become clear-headed, confident, and courageous. NOBODY knocks you off your game because you own your greatness. You’re playing a winners game!
Love Your Extrovertedness is Electric Because it’s Truthful!
You know the feeling you get when you step into your truth –– it’s electric. Why? Because you’ve aligned with your persona and soul self. You now express Divinely inspired messages and actions through your reality. You’re operating from the magical union of soul self and your fearless personality. This allows everything to flow into your world seamlessly. You know the right words, when to pivot, and how to make the best decisions for extraordinary outcomes. And you don’t feel the need to judge anymore because you understand we are all Divinely led here on earth to evolve.
Let’s Stop Stereotyping Extroverts. –– Nina Zapala, Founder; Spiritual Personality Typing®
Rise Above Stereotyping and Be the Extrovert Who Owns Their Truth and Loves Who They Are
I took an online quiz from a popular blogger to see if I was an introvert or an extrovert. Their test results stated that I’m an introvert. The results didn’t surprise me since my type is pretty much 50/50 on the introvert/extrovert scale. What surprised me was what they said, “introverts prefer deeper relationships while extroverts prefer more superficial ones.”
I have to say, I was insulted, and I disagree wholeheartedly. While extroverts in their younger years may be more concerned with worldly interests because it’s innate to who they really are. Yet, as extroverts begin to mature, they also desire deep and fulfilling relationships. Don’t we all, OK maybe not all of us but to stereotype 50% of the population is bullshit.
So many things in our society are polarizing and separating; politics, gender, race, the Internet, and personality typing. I see memes and all the stereotyping about personality types ⏤ it’s hurtful and untrue. It makes you question yourself, and it has you believing in what these stereotypical memes say.
Here’s the thing. Everyone is created from Divine intelligence with a personality and a soul on a mission to evolve. I believe people will come and go in your life. You’ll be attracted to people who play a part in your soul’s evolution, good or bad. With extroverts, it’s easier to strike up a conversation or engage because, inherently, it’s who you are. Again, it’s an ENERGY thing!
As an extrovert, you look at the world in these ways: thoughtfully, aware of the world, while reflecting on what it all means, with the ability to express it. What a beautiful gift. –– Nina Zapala, Founder, Spiritual Personality Typing.®
You Prefer to Be In the World: It’s An Energy Thing!
You have a wonderful way of leading, whether it’s a small group, a community, or the collective at hand. In these crazy, chaotic times, extroverts tend to be less overwhelmed by the world. Why? You feel at home in the world as you are deeply connected to it all. You’re more inclined to welcome the physical world and all it offers; the busyness, actions, and engagement with others.
Be an Extrovert and Own Your Truth
OK, I want to be clear about what I speak of here. When I say how to love being an extrovert and own your truth, I’m not saying this from an ego-bravado sense. I’m speaking from a place of fearlessness and purpose. A powerful, passionate, purposeful extrovert who’s so centered in who they really are that they’ve become aligned with the inner soul self and take inspired actions infecting everyone they meet with their Dinvely inspired persona. You ooze positive energy.
You are no longer afraid to be quiet or unbusy and have found a way to reflect before acting. This is when you see extroverts exude passion, excitement, and joy. I’ve experienced this myself. I’ve stepped off the hamster wheel, I don’t feel a need to comment every single time, and I’m OK with saying no. I no longer have to be involved in everything or every activity. It’s so freeing.
Your abundant magnetic energy lives in the possibility of changing worlds, showing up for others, and sharing how beautiful the world is. It’s one of your greatest SUPERPOWERS. ––An excerpt from the upcoming book: 16 Personalities Unpacked: Myers-Briggs Taken An Enlightened Vacation, author Nina Zapala

Extroversion is an enormously appealing personality style, but we’ve turned it into an oppressive standard to which most of us feel we must conform. –– Author, Susan Cain, Bittersweet
