Through the progression of the extrovert ideal in the business world, as described by Susan Cain, asserting ideas and being capable of abundant involvement in large groups have become structural components for accomplishing prosperity in Western culture. The obligation to consistently exert intense energy persuades introverts that their predisposition to be quiet in contemplation is inferior. Tendencies affiliated with both introversion and extroversion are profitable traits that can be compelling when applied in the appropriate social settings. However, individual qualities vary depending on particular personalities and cannot be assessed advantageously against a standardized set of behavioral expectations. Diverse modes of thought exist between introverts and extroverts and influence the ways in which a person chooses to share and exchange information. The ability to effectively communicate thoughts and ideas directly correlates to the understanding of self-identification. The art movement of Abstract Expressionism has been pivotal in cultivating nonobjective painting methods used to capture the inherently abstract concepts of identity and communication. Through the process of expressionistic abstract painting, this research examines the relationship between introversion and extroversion while preparing a vehicle for self-discovery and exploration. The purpose of this research is to gain greater comprehension of the connection between introversion and extroversion and how the association between the two temperaments affects general communication. As a result of pairing the painting process with knowledge about the functionality of introverted identity, this project also serves to form a deeper sense of self by existing as a valuable way to decipher thoughts and emotions in an introverted manner.
