Forging a Strong Bond through Diverse Personalities

As they say, “A strong friendship doesn’t need daily conversation and doesn’t always need togetherness. As long as the relationship lives in the heart, true friends will never be apart.” Friendship can be between two opposite people sometimes though their characters are different, their hearts are pure and they understand each other.

One such example can be the friendship between an introvert and an extrovert. Imagine different situations between two different personalities. For instance, the extrovert says, “Are you coming to the birthday party next week ?” The introvert will probably say, “No, I don’t feel like coming, moreover I think I will be busy on that day.”

Imagine a friendship moment when the introvert is finding it difficult to tell people to be quiet when they are talking during his or her presentation and the extrovert notices this and immediately just tells everyone, “Please be quiet everybody, let us listen to the presenter.” Or when the students go on a field trip, when the introvert sits in one place and doesn’t come for a group photo, the extrovert says, “Come on, be fun, join me in the picture and give a nice pose” or “Come on I know, you can dance; don’t just sit there!”

Or the exact opposite situations where the introvert at the field trip says, “Come on, enough pictures, look at that tree there, aren’t the flowers beautiful?” and the extrovert agrees. Or when the extrovert is distracted by his or her social circle, the introvert says, “Did you start studying? Remember, the project is due the day after tomorrow.” Or sometimes, at the end of the day despite the extrovert having a large friend circle he or she comes to their introvert best friend to discuss some issues that need some advice and the introvert will always lend their ears and give them some insightful advice.

From this, we can understand that when we’re opposites it doesn’t always have to be a fight. Their contrasting characters are the beauty and adding to that is their willingness to learn from each other as they both have faults and that understanding is what forms a stronger and purer bond between each other.
