    intrapersonal vs introverted

    What is the difference between "intrapersonal" and "introverted"?
    Is a person with great intrapersonal ability also introverted or are the two slightly different from each other?
    I think "intrapersonal" refers to being able to reflect on yourself internally, while "introvered" refers to avoiding outward activities, trying to remain inside yourself, but this doesn't mean you are good at meditating or reflecting on yourself.

    After reading the above, I think a person with intrapersonal ability could be extroverted instead of introverted.

    Re: intrapersonal vs introverted

    I have never used (or heard used) the word "intrapersonal". Interestingly, when I typed the word into this post, a red squiggly line appeared underneath it which means that my BrE spellchecker doesn't recognise it.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
