The more often you answered True, the more introverted you probably are. Lots of False answers suggests you’re an extrovert. If you had a roughly equal number of Trues and False, then you may be an “ambivert”

An introvert is not simply a person who is shy. In fact, being shy has little to do with being an introvert! Shyness has an element of apprehension, nervousness and anxiety, and while an introvert may also be shy, introversion itself is not shyness. Basically, an introvert is a person who is energized by being alone and whose energy is drained by being around other people.

Most people believe that an extrovert is a person who is friendly and outgoing. While that may be true, that is not the true meaning of extroversion. Basically, an extrovert is a person who is energized by being around other people. This is the opposite of an introvert who is energized by being alone.

Introverts are more concerned with the inner world of the mind. They enjoy thinking, exploring their thoughts and feelings. They often avoid social situations because being around people drains their energy. This is true even if they have good social skills. After being with people for any length of time, such as at a party, they need time alone to “recharge.”

Extroverts tend to “fade” when alone and can easily become bored without people around. When given the chance, an extrovert will talk with someone else rather than sit alone and think. In fact, extroverts tend to think as they speak, unlike introverts who are far more likely to think before they speak. Extroverts often think best when they are talking. Concepts just don’t seem real to them unless they can talk about them; reecting on them isn’t enough.

When introverts want to be alone, it is not, by itself, a sign of depression. It means that they either need to regain their energy from being around people or that they simply want the time to be with their own thoughts. Being with people, even people they like and are comfortable with, can prevent them from their desire to be quietly introspective.

Extroverts enjoy social situations and even seek them out since they enjoy being around people. Their ability to make small talk makes them appear to be more socially adept than introverts (although introverts may have little difculty talking to people they don’t know if they can talk about concepts or issues).

Being introspective, though, does not mean that an introvert never has conversations. However, those conversations are generally about ideas and concepts, not about what they consider the trivial matters of social small talk.

Extroverts are very comfortable in groups, and may be even happier as the centre of attention. Extroverts’ personality traits are self-condent, enthusiastic, gregarious, friendly, & outgoing.

Identify a possible reason why the friendship is weakening, and do something about it!

Be the mature one, take a deep breath and just let it go and move on.

Keep your distance from drama If the problem doesn’t involve you, don’t get involved. As tempting as it seems to be the mediator to resolve conict or to take the side you believe in more - it is just not worth it. In return for your good intention you would be one being the enemy! Don’t waste your time, the parties involved will sort out the situation themselves. Respect authority As young adults we may not always agree or sometimes like our teachers and parents. What we need to remember is that we have these individuals in our lives for a lot of reasons. They do care about you and me. Listen to their advice. Believe me they have been there and done that (not that they would admit it entirely). All the situations we are currently dealing with - they know and understand. It is healthy to state your opinion but take in what they tell you and obey. One day not far from now, you will be in their shoes! Make your own statement Wearing the latest fashion, getting the newest electronics, getting a popular haircut, and spending a lot of your time trying to follow the latest trends is a huge waste. Trends won’t matter in a few months and they are not in your interest - only in the interest of giant corporations who market to the masses. Concentrate on your academics This the one thing you don’t want to mess up. Your academics will be the one and only thing, standing in your way of having a good job. Develop good academic habits for college, absorb the information being taught to you. If not, you are wasting the most important function of high school. Think about it in this way - would

you let a doctor who scored 40% on his/her exams while studying do an operation on you? I would not! Do Not Be Too Quick To Judge Do not value rst impressions highly. Don’t dismiss a person or idea too early just because you immediately get a bad impression from it. You will miss many opportunities because of that. Just because something is not to your liking at rst glance, does not mean it is bad. Try to give everything a fair chance. See things in other people’s perspective The decisions people make, may seem odd to you, but try to walk in their shoes. Try to imagine why they would do the things that they do. They may be victims, they may have good intentions, they may have something to gain out of what they are doing, they may be thinking illogically, or are you thinking illogically? Learn to take responsibility Doing whatever you want regardless of the consequences, may be okay for now because there are parents and teachers to help you x it. BUT they won’t be there in the future. Break this awful habit. Learn to be accountable for yourself and learn self-discipline. Never hold grudges It is like holding a trade embargo. We believe that the intend is to hurt the other party, but it hurts you equally. Spending your high school years focusing on the tension between you and another person is not pleasant. Be quick to forgive. Be thankful for everything you have There are many people in the world who are poor, starving, uneducated, and on the verge of death, and there are millions of people in history who have suffered from war, famine, and slavery. So be thankful for everything you have. It’s all about the habits Bad habits are hard to break and remain with you for a long time. Don’t fall into a trap which can hurt you. Simultaneously, develop good habits which you would like to carry with you for the rest of your life. How will this effect me in ve years? Ask that question with every big decision you make.

TV Serial Gossip Girl is at the moment the most important “fashion serial” as beside the intrigues, love and friendship it got millions of viewers around the globe thanks to fashion they raised to new level. If you want to look like your favourite character you cannot be without hat as Blair & Serena are glamming up their looks with hats for every occasion. Blair is choosing 1920’s small hats style due her small head and face while Serena is wearing pretty much everything from boho style to big round beach hats. Nowadays they are wearable in whole variety of shapes and became one of the items that make statements and draw attention. For 2012 trends are large round soft hats but you’ll still look great if you chose smaller ones.

Good luck Dr Eve

I am getting low grades in English and need to lift them. I do not know how I can do this, but I really need to improve my marks. Can you give me some clues? Neo High yield potential Stability Good Standability Irrigation

Dear Neo

Learning a new or another language is something that all of us are confronted with. Some people nd languages very easy to learn and others nd this task very difcult. I would suggest that you go to your library and borrow an easy English reading book to start off with. Once you have read this book and understand it, go get another one which should be a little bit more difcult. You can carry on with this technique and in so doing improve your English. Keep a dictionary close by to look up the word that you do not understand, and see how these words are used in the book. Reading can help you learn many things, especially the language in which you are reading. Be careful not to take up the time that you need to complete your homework with reading. Make another time your reading time and try to read EVERY DAY. I hope this will help you. Dr Eve.

Thami Lungisa Tsolekile (born 9 October 1980) is a South African cricketer who has played matches for South Africa as a wicket-keeper. At the beginning of the 2009/10 season, Tsolekile moved from Cape Town up to Johannesburg to go play for the Bizhub Highveld Lions. He also played hockey for his country at international level, scoring on debut, and played soccer during his childhood. Tsolekile has been identied as the successor to Mark Boucher when he was named as one of 22 contracted players for the 2012-13 season, the rst time CSA have contracted a second wicket keeper in 13 years since contracts were rst awarded in 1998. Tsolekile has been playing rst-class cricket since 1999 and represented South Africa in three Tests in 2004, when Boucher was dropped after a lean patch. He took six catches but scored only 47 runs and Boucher was soon back at the helm, a position he has occupied for the last 15 years. In previous years it has been difcult to isolate one of the franchise ‘keepers as the next best in the country, but the selection committee was forced to do so in the most recent meeting. They settled on Tsolekile, saying his recent form with the bat and maturity behind the stumps gave him the edge. Tsolekile has shown that he is willing to learn and had made signicant improvements from when he rst appeared for South Africa. “I was very surprised to get a national contract but all the hard work I’ve put in has paid off,” he said. “As a cricketer I have matured with age and experience and I am more ready now than when I made my debut and I would love to get another chance.”
