The Difference between ExtrAversion and ExtrOversion - Scientific American Blog Network
Folklore has it that when Carl Jung was once asked which was the correct spelling—ExtrAvert or ExtrOvert—Jung's secretary wrote back something like, "Dr. Jung says it's ExtrAverted, because ExtrOverted is just bad latin."

The relationship among individual differences in individualism-collectivism, extraversion, and self-presentation
• Relationships among culture, extraversion, and self-presentation were investigated.
• Individualism has a significant correlation with extraversion.
• Extraversion has a significant correlation with self-presentation on social media.

Individualism versus collectivism as an aspect of culture and extraversion as an aspect of personality may help explain self-presentation attitudes, intentions, and behaviors on social networking sites. Thus, this study aims to investigate the individual differences and relationships among individualism versus collectivism, extraversion, and self-presentation attitudes, intentions, and behaviors. The Individualism-Collectivism Scale and the Big Five Personality Scale were used to collect the data from 311 college students (75.9% woman, mean age = 20.68). Results show that individualism has a significant positive correlation with extraversion, which has a significant correlation with selfie posting attitudes, intentions and behaviors. Even though the correlation between individualism and attitudes toward self-presentation was statistically significant, the magnitude of the association was small.

5. Discussion and conclusion
The present study focused on gender differences and the relationships among culture, personality, and selfie posting on SNS. Findings suggest that selfie posting is a reflection of personality (i.e., extraversion) but not much of a cultural orientation. Thus, one of the main contributions of the present study is that even though culture (individualism and collectivism) and extraversion are related, culture does not have a strong relationship with selfie posting.

Results suggest that individualism has a statistically significant correlation only with attitudes toward selfie posting but the magnitude of such relation is quite small. Based on the findings, it can be concluded that increase in individualism is related to increase in extraversion, which in turn is slightly related to more positive attitudes toward selfie posting. However, collectivism did not have any meaningful relationship with selfie posting attitudes, intentions, or behaviors. Results also suggest a significant correlation with extraversion and selfie posting attitudes, intentions, and behaviors. Selfies shared on SNS are becoming prominent means of communication online. Non-verbal cues (e.g., postures, gestures, facial expressions) are being powerful means of online communication (Frosh, 2015). Extraverts communicate with others more effectively and intend to maintain this communication.

Accordingly, selfie posting can serve a practically significant purpose in such a communication for extraverts. In addition, extraverts have common share with others and engage more in social activities. This suggests that extraverts who wish to share memories, feelings, and activities display more positive attitudes toward selfie posting, higher intention to post selfies, and do show more selfie posting behaviors. The current results along with the results of previous studies (e.g., Kim & Chock, 2016; Lee, Ahn, & Kim, 2014; Sorokowska et al., 2016; Sung, Lee, Kim, & Choi, 2016) support this interpretation. The implication of this finding is that extraverts would continue to post selfies so long as they keep satisfying their social engagement needs. Giluk and Postlethwaite (2015) argued that individuals higher in extraversion enjoy being social, have an assertive nature, and are sensation-seekers (Seidman, 2013). When these characteristics come together, it is no surprise that extraverts have more positive attitudes, higher intentions, and selfie posting behaviors on SNS (Ryan & Xenos, 2011). Sorokowska et al. (2016) found that extraversion and social exhibitionism determined the frequency of online selfie posting among 1296 Polish college students. In a similar study, Qiu, Lu, Yang, Qu, and Zhu (2015) examined the association between the Big Five personality traits and selfie posting behavior on SNS. They identified that specific cues in selfies were related to neuroticism, agreeableness, openness, and conscientiousness. It can be concluded from these findings that the fundamental characteristics of extraverts increase the likelihood of selfie posting attitudes, intentions, and behaviors.

The present study was able to identify significant correlations between individualism-extraversion and collectivism-extraversion. Prior studies suggest significant relationships between individualism and extraversion (McCrae, 2001; McCrae & Allik, 2002; McCrae & Terracciano, 2005). For example, Kotelnikova and Tackett (2009) suggested that individuals' behaviors on social media reflect their personality characteristics.

22 Tips To Better Care for Introverts and Extroverts
Introverts (or those of us with introverted tendencies) tend to recharge by spending time alone. They lose energy from being around people for long periods of time, particularly large crowds.

Extroverts, on the other hand, gain energy from other people. Extroverts actually find their energy is sapped when they spend too much time alone. They recharge by being social.

Taylor & Francis Online :: The preference for experiences over possessions: Measurement and construct validation of the Experiential Buying Tendency Scale - The Journal of Positive Psychology - Volume 7, Issue 1
"There is growing support that money spent on experiential items increases an individual's happiness. However, there is minimal research on the causes and long-term consequences of the tendency to make experiential purchases. Given the importance of experiential buying for improving well-being, an understanding of the preference for experiential purchasing is imperative. Thus, we developed the Experiential Buying Tendency Scale (EBTS) to measure habitual experiential purchasing. Across eight samples (n = 9634), the EBTS was developed, and shown to be reliable, valid, and predictive of consumer behavior and psychological well-being. An experiential purchasing tendency was related to higher extraversion, openness, empathic concern, and reward seeking. Further, non-materialistic values predicted a preference for experiential purchasing, which led to increased psychological need satisfaction, and, ultimately, increased subjective well-being. The discussion proposes that experiential…"
