Some people are introverts and some people, extroverts. Yet too much of both is a problem, so we have to find a way to find balance.
I'm an introvert by nature. I like to retreat and self-reflect whenever I'm having a challenge or I'm struggling with something. The only problem is that I used to do it too much when I should have been reaching out to people. God doesn't want us to isolate ourselves when we're having an issue with something. He made people to help people and there are trustworthy people who can help us when we open ourselves up to them emotionally. It may mean being around people instead of being alone. I know enough about God that He will not give us anybody crazy when we earnestly seek Him for guidance and direction. He loves us and wants to help us. That goes for extroverts too. God wants to direct their paths, as well. And like introverts, they need to know what to do to find what works for them. It may mean doing more self-reflection and less people. It may mean spending more time alone than being around people.
It's all about finding balance and equilibrium and doing what's best for who we are, so we can be our best for others. The bottom line is that we just want greatness and that comes with striving to master the fruits of the spirit, which are "love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control" (Galatians 5:22/23). That's balance.
