WE INDIANS

INTROVERTS OR EXTROVERTS

We are not born perfect nor we would ever be; but we are born with the ability to go beyond where we are. We are able to stretch the will within us to reach beyond what we currently can achieve.

Sudden declaration by our Prime Minister other day on demonetisation of Indian currency notes of 1,000/- and 500/- brought in the familiar story of Indian Constitution i.e. position of Indian Prime Minister – Made him A Powerful Prime Minister. His step was first in National Economy for a change. This change has been looked in two ways – one can look at it functionally like a piece of plumbing the leakage of money flow at one side or change could be seen as a mentality a frame work of THOUGHT. Could be explain in form of INTROVERTS & EXTROVERTS.

INTRVERTS & EXTROVERTS, both live in their ‘comfort zones’ it is an advice to get off and do something you know and could do; why hesitate for no reason; what stop you from manifesting. Greatness is not what you think to do or you fail to do; it is what you never attempted, doing it now with success. The words introverted and extroverted have been in our vocabulary for a long time.
But laymen, as also professional people, are not very clear as to what these mean in terms of human experience. We can perhaps postulate a personality continuum with extroversion at one end and introversion at the other. However, it has to be realised that pure introverts or pure extroverts are a statistical abstraction as most people have characteristics of both. Introverts keep their best stuff inside—that is, until it is ready. And this drives extroverts crazy! The explanation for the introvert’s behavior—and there must be an explanation for this behavior, say the extroverts—is that he or she is antisocial, out of touch, or simply a snob.INDIANS as a whole are INTROVERTS – DEMONETIZATION of Indian currency has proved this. This is an attempt from our Prime Minister to curb corruption and botulism. Honest with small earnings citizens are happy with the move, they have little to worry about—barring the fact that the cash won’t be accepted for any transactions; they have learnt to live whatever little they have with them with few exceptions who tried to be EXTROVERT. All they have to do is go to their local banks or post offices and deposit the outdated currency. In return, the government is issuing new Rs500 and Rs2, 000 denomination notes. The move forcing the circulation of black money and counterfeit notes out of the system could inconvenience some people who don’t know what to do with their cash, such as foreign tourists who don’t have bank accounts in the country or non-resident Indians (NRIs) re-entering the country with their old bank notes; we are typically good listeners and, at least, have the appearance of calmness, we are attractive to emotionally needy people. Introverts, gratified that other people are initiating with them, can easily get caught in these exhausting and unsatisfying relationships.

Notes worth 500 and 1,000 rupees will be invalid starting at midnight local time, Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced during a televised address to the nation. The unexpected move is designed to fight against corruption and money laundering, Modi said, calling them “diseases” and “obstacles” to the country’s economic success. Modi said that policy changes had largely failed to root out corruption. Two years ago, he said, India was ranked 100th in terms of global corruption perception, and the country has only improved to 76th.

Most people believe that an extrovert is a person who is friendly and outgoing. While that may be true, that is not the true meaning of extroversion. Basically, an extrovert is a person who is energized by being around other people. This is the opposite of an introvert who is energized by being alone. Extroverts tend to “fade” when alone and can easily become bored without other people around. When given the chance, an extrovert will talk with someone else rather than sit alone and think. In fact, extroverts tend to think as they speak, unlike introverts who are far more likely to think before they speak. Extroverts often think well when they are talking. Concepts just don’t seem real to them unless they can talk about them; reflecting on them isn’t enough.

Distress may not always bring out the best of Indians, but it does often bring out the funny, the ingenious, and the poignant in them. As ordinary Indians, with hardly any unaccounted wealth to hide, ended up waiting in slow-moving lines, one set of people knew how to get the better of this struggle. Some innovative locals in Kerala developed a smart system, marking their places in queues with stones and paper, while they themselves escaped the labor. In the two weeks following the government’s decision to demonetize two of India’s most used rupee denominations, accounting for 86% of the total Indian currency in circulation by value, citizens have been in battle mode. There has been a mad scramble for cash, with long hours spent in queues to exchange old notes for new ones—sometimes successfully, sometimes not. So far, banks have struggled to keep up with demand, leaving many short of even small change for basic daily necessities. Indians, though, are nothing if not resourceful. So, this (hopefully temporary) new normal has unleashed a wave of quirky adaptations, at times heartwarming and downright absurd otherwise.

People who are introverted tend to be inward turning, or focused more on internal thoughts, feelings and moods rather than seeking out external stimulation. Introversion is generally viewed as existing as part of a continuum along with extraversion. Introversion indicates one end of the scale, while extraversion represents the other end. Researchers have found that people high in this trait tend to have a smaller group of friends. While extroverts generally have a wide circle of friends and acquaintances, introverts typically choose their friends much more carefully. Their closest relationships tend to be profound and significant. They also prefer to interact with people on a one-on-one basis rather than in a large group setting. It is important to note that introversion does not necessarily equate with shyness. “Sociability refers to the motive, strong or weak, of wanting to be with others, whereas shyness refers to behaviour when with others, inhibited or uninhibited, as well as feelings of tension and discomfort. Shyness indicates a fear of people or social situations. Introverts, on the other hand, simply do not like to spend lots of time interacting with other people. However, they do appreciate being around people to whom they are close.

Extroverts prefer to externalize and deal with problems interactively. Because of this difference, introverts may seem psychologically burdened, while extroverts spread the burden around and seem healthier—from an extroverted standpoint. But note that I said introverts like to take problems inside. Sure, an introvert can overdo it, but so can the extrovert who feels compelled to express every unresolved thought or emotion. The former gets depressed or anxious and goes to therapy; the latter sends others to therapy.

Demonetization has led to a windfall for temples, churches, and other religious institutions that are allowed to accept notes in any denomination as donations. Naturally, god’s cash boxes are by now stuffed with the now-worthless notes. For instance, at the Tirumala temple in Tirupati, Andhra Pradesh—the world’s second-richest Hindu place of worship—daily collections have doubled since the announcement. In Chennai, the temple’s governing body received Rs4.5 crore in Rs1, 000 notes and Rs5 crore in Rs500 notes between Nov. 01 and Nov. 18, officials told The Hindu newspaper.
