Best Ways For Introverts And Extroverts Deal With The Pandemic
According to socionics, there are 16 personality types of people around the globe – identified by Myers and Briggs. Myers and Briggs proposed four key dimensions of personality and one of those is to identify whether you are an introvert or an extrovert person. Introverts are cozier when engaging with their inner thoughts and perceptions and prefer dealing with one or two people rather than a crowd. They are a mixture of social, thinking, anxiety, and control. On the other hand, extroverts are the energizer of the group. They are high-spirited and very outgoing, and most people will look up to them in conversations, but they are sometimes described as attention-seekers, can be easily distracted, and cannot handle alone time.
Both personalities might be very opposite from each other, but they struggle to handle the unprecedented changes of this pandemic in many aspects. Here are some of the best ways to manage possibilities amid this pandemic:
Keep Up with Your Routines
Your daily routines influence how we manage our lives. If we imprint our actions with some of the things that we are used to be doing at home, this could help us reduce the queerness of this pandemic. Keeping up with your routines such as drinking coffee in the morning before working, having quick chit-chat with some friends at break virtually, and making your workspace functional at all times – are all good.
Have a Plan for a Day
Plotting your plan and schedule can help you become more organized with your goals at work, daily. In setting up your schedule, make sure to include your break time – this could help you gain more resistance from work. For taking your breaks, do some things that you love: listening to music, connecting with co-workers virtually, or having some fresh air in the backyard.
Talk with Friends
Isolation can give mental and psychological exhaustion. With this, people in this time of pandemic become more creative in connecting with their friends. As we can see online, friends are having a great time ‘catching up with each other, they are also doing Zumba online and duets in WeSing or Tiktok.
Spend Time with Yourself
We all need time to rest and be free from anything to reflect and think. In this pandemic, almost all of us are working at home and the noise and disturbance from home or neighborhoods are quite very evident and are very hard to handle. To re-motivate ourselves to work, we need time to meditate and feel the essence of life.
Do Not be Hard on Yourself
Isolating for a very long time is hard for everyone because we are all unprepared for these unparalleled circumstances brought by COVID-19. We all feel unproductive and worse, worthless, but we need to keep in mind that doing the right thing as of the moment is the best option for us to be back in the normal state of living.
