5 Signs An Ambivert Likes You

4. They’re Inconsistent When Interacting With You Online

You can tell a lot about someone’s personality by looking at how they behave online. And in today’s world, that’s how most relationships start. People can usually tell if they want to date someone after five minutes of chatting online, and if all goes well, the internet is where relationships first start to blossom. Like it or not, that’s how it is. But how do ambiverts fit in to this equation? As many ambiverts will tell you, they have a certain “love/hate” relationship with social media and online interaction. Some days, they love chatting with friends and pursuing romances online. But on other days, they’re more inclined to shut themselves off from this looming and sometimes intrusive world, preferring to be alone with their thoughts. This can be confusing for the people they have a crush on. They might be texting you for hours on one day, only to fall completely off the radar the next.

Just relax, this doesn’t mean they’ve forgotten about you or lost interest. They’re just taking a break from social media. This kind of “on/off” behavior also extends to phone calls, texting, and even interactions in person. If you’re pursuing a relationship with an ambivert, you’re probably going to be experiencing a lot of inconsistencies and unpredictable behavior in the future… just a warning. The key is not to stress out about whether they’re still interested. Just give them time, and they’ll start texting you back soon enough!

  1. Hey, just so y’all know, ambiverts aren’t a thing. Every single person has both extraverted and introverted parts to their personalities; it’s called the “cognitive functions”. Go look them up sometime. It’s actually a really deep and insightful analysis into how we think and function. Every person uses every letter, but the four-letter Myers-Briggs types (or, more loosely, just the E vs. I distinction) indicates your preference. Literally no one is 100% internally focused or 100% externally focused. We all go back and forth, and the people you want to call “ambiverts” are just more in the center of the sliding scale than some others are. (This isn’t even a psychology article, by the way, it’s a dating article disguised as a psychology article, and things like being shy have nothing to do with whether you’re introverted or extraverted.)

  2. If you understood how personality psychology worked this whole ambivert thing would not exist. We use our judging/perceiving, sensing/intuition, and feeling/thinking pairs in different proportions and those can be oriented either outwardly or inwardly. You wouldn’t say that someone is all logic or all feeling, would you? Because no one is 100% any particulat personality trait. And can we see a link to this research suggesting that 66% of the population are ambiverts?

  3. I really enjoyed this article! The content that is in the article is very intriguing, relatable, and well written. I myself am I ambivert so I can definitely relate to pretty much all of the five things you mentioned. The only form of criticism that for this sentence
    – “Research suggests that two thirds of the population are ambiverts, meaning you might know more about these types of people than you think.” I would use a hyper link to the article to let readers go to the website and read that specific information themselves. Also, instead of writing “research suggests” write the actual person that said that ‘two-thirds of the population are ambiverts’. Having that information gives the reader proof that you know what your talking about.
    There are some sentences that I feel could have been written just a bit better. For example:
    – “Sometimes, they prefer their own company and alone times while other times, they need to hang out with a lot of people.”
    To me when I read this it was kind of confusing, here is an example of how I re-wrote that sentence:
    – “Ambiverts need to find a balance to be around people and also have quality time with themselves to recharge. ”
    My advice would be to always read what you have written out-loud. Often times when I’m writing papers and think that it’s good. It’s often not because when I read my papers out-loud, I find many mistakes like grammatical errors, sentence fragments, etc.
    Another thing that I would focus on is double checking the grammar. For example:
    – “Some people say they are social introverts or extroverted introverts or introverted extroverts, but truth ARE, they are just degrees of the umbrella term ambiverts.” Change ARE to is.
    – “It’s not like they changed their minds about liking you, it’s just their introverted side *is* telling them that they’re getting themselves into a dangerous social situation.” (I added is)

    Other than those things that I have mentioned, the article is very good, and well thought out!

  4. Another facet of ambiverts that we could exam would be how their language usage changes. (For more info, read this https://www.scientificamerican.com/article/you-are-what-you-say/ ) So, thinking on how language usage change, is it possible we could mark out someone as an ambivert just by the speech patterns that they use?

    As a person who would be classified as an ambivert according to this article and the supporting research, I can attest to how my language patterns change depending on who I am around. If I am more familiar with a person, or group of people, I’m more likely to be lax in my language usage, use more slang, etc.

    However, in a professional setting, or a setting where I am not exactly comfortable with who I’m dealing with, the articulation tends to be a more….profound type of articulation, such as to keep calm and make a point.

  5. Before reading this article, I’d never heard of the term “ambivert”. But, now that I have, I’m interested to see if anyone I know is one. I know that I’m definitely not, but I feel like some of my friends could definitely be one. Where did all the research on ambiverts come from? Do you consider yourself to be an ambivert, and extrovert, or an introvert?
