下面是從我的愛書之一Touchstone裡面找出來的。個性跟星座，台灣人還挺愛聊的，而且聽說還有些主管會拿來當面試的參考，所以星座上次說過，這次看看個性。什麼樣的人是外向？假如你只說自己外向好像還不夠，舉幾個例子。下面這些我覺得都是些不錯的用語。還有聽力部分也是很好的練習，裡面的用字我也覺得都很不錯，不少東西是應該記起來，有機會的時候可以用出來的喔！補習班上這個太難了，所以是給其他學生用的，同學可以參考一下:) Have a good week! 潔西繼續忙去！

Touchstone 4 Unit 4 Socializing
Lesson D 2. Listening and writing Extrovert or introvert? P.41
A: Jun, do you think of yourself as an extrovert or an introvert?
B: I don’t really know. Maybe an introvert – but what are they supposed to be like
A: Oh, quiet, thoughtful people, who don’t really like socializing in big crowds –
that kind of thing.
B: Well, I guess that sounds a bit like me. I’m not one for going out and socializing.
I mean, I have friends, but I like to spend time with them – you know, have
them over for dinner, go places with them, but have a chance to really talk.
A: Yeah, I was going to say, you have a lot of friends, right?
B: That’s true. I do. I have a lot of very good friends. But I like to see them in
ones and twos, as I said.
A: So you don’t really like going out in big groups?
B: No, I always try to get out of parties and things, and you know, I’ve never had a
party at my place either. I just hate being the center of attention.
A: Yeah, I can see that.
B: But I enjoy socializing, and I like it when other people tell stories and joke
around and stuff. I enjoy a good joke, as long as I’m not the one telling it! And
I like to talk with people, you know, just chat with them… It doesn’t have to be
about serious stuff all the time. So, do I sound like an introvert?
A: Maybe. I think introverts also like to work on their own, figure things out
themselves – they’re not so good at group work or teamwork. And they think of
themselves as individuals, too, not really “social animals.” I get the feeling
you’re not really like that, are you?
B: Oh, well, I like working as part of a team – working in groups. I think it’s a
creative way to work. I think I must be a “social animal” – I mean, it’s not like I
don’t mix with people. I really like people!
A: Well, maybe you’re just a mix of extrovert and introvert.
B: Yeah, I guess I am.
