I am ambivalent person. Even though I am an introvert, I must recharge my energy by meeting a new person. I always think they give something appreciating new for me so I can learn a new story.

I always meet new people and I like this because I'm so sociable.

I don´t meet people as frequently as I woud like, because of my job, routine, daily life, etc. But when I meet new people I enjoy it a lot, to have other kind of conversations, It´s exciting!!!

I meet new people each month because I am in an online school, so meeting people is part of my day.
