Have you ever been asked about your personality type? Are you an introvert or an extrovert? Did you have no answer for it? Were you confused about your personality type? Is it because sometimes you’re out there happy with the world and sometimes you just want to be alone in the comfort of your room?

If yes, today you are finally going to find some answers! If you often find yourself juggling between introversion and extroversion you’re not alone. Being an omnivert is rare therefore, the signs of omniverts are not discussed as commonly.

There are a lot of people who lay on the middle ground of being an extrovert or an introvert but omniverts are quite different from such people. If you think your personality bounces from one extreme to the other, this blog is just for you.

Let’s uncover the meaning of being an omnivert and explore the signs of an omnivert…

What Is The Meaning Of Omnivert?

Omniverts are those people who have very confusing personalities. One day they will show extreme extroversion and another day they’ll crawl back into their cocoon as if they never existed.

Many people get confused between omniverts and ambiverts. They might look similar but these two personality types are poles apart. Let me explain to you one main difference between omniverts and ambiverts.

Omniverts tend to bounce between two extremes (extroversion and introversion). Whereas ambiverts have qualities of both extroversion and introversion and can easily control what kind of personality trait you want to have for the time being.

Omniverts are controlled by their emotions and mood therefore they can’t control the fluctuations they experience when it comes to their personality traits. Ambiverts have full control over their extroversion and introversion phases but with omniverts, it is completely dependent on their mood.

So for omniverts, if their mood is just right and cheerful, they will showcase most traits of an extrovert. Whereas when they are in a bad mood, irritated or depressed, they are most likely to incline toward introversion.

Do you think you’re an omnivert? Well, here’s a way to find out…

Signs You’re An Omnivert

6. Never score the same on a personality test:

since your personality is controlled by your mood and emotions, an omnivert never scores the same on a personality test. That is because every time you take a test you’re possibly in a different mood.

it is very peculiar of an omnivert personality to enjoy the limelight but at the same time also dislike receiving complete attention from them. So you sulk when you’re not in the limelight but when you are in one, you hate the feeling.

8. You shift from one personality to another quite easily:

For an omnivert, it is very common to be happy and peppy one day and gloomy the other day. They say they enjoy being outside with friends doing something interesting but it is possible for them to choose to stay indoors and engage in something interesting all by themselves.

the fact that omniverts lean on both ends of personality, they are most likely to experience extreme mood swings. It is a very prominent trait of an omnivert to experience shifts in mood quite frequently because both introvertedness and extrovertedness attract them.

If you ever notice the most common personality types, you’ll see that most of them lay on the middle ground or are ambiverts. Omniverts are not even close to being as common as other personality types.
