People make it seem like “introvert” and “intuitive” are one in the same – that to be an intuit, you must also be the kind of person who gets their energy from themselves. How could it be any other way?
Of course, intuition and extrovertedness are not mutually exclusive things. Extroverts express their intuitiveness in a way that’s different than how introverts do, but often, it can be even more powerful and useful and transformative to the world.
Extroverted intuitives have the gift of seeing solutions beyond the surface. They look at a situation and think: how can we transform this? Rather than: how can I cope with this? Extroverted intuitives see potential, where other people see unchangeable “facts.” Extroverted intuitives are perhaps some of the most optimistic people in the world – they know that there is no such thing as a problem that can’t be solved.
Extroverted intuitives are often master healers. They can share their insight in a way that is clear and understandable to those around them, and very often have a hidden gift for helping people to transform their own lives (even when they aren’t trying). Both extroverted and introverted intuitives have a powerful awareness of self, but introverts tend to understand their own mind and desires whereas extroverts can perceive other people’s wants, feelings and best interests with a little bit more ease.
Extroverted intuitives have an easier time using their intuitiveness, because they apply it to the world around them, rather than within them. They have a very particular gift of understanding and vision, and that should never be underestimated.
