We often discuss personality types but this quote from Imam Shafi'i explores the consequences and encourages us to mold our personality in a balanced way between introversion and extroversion.

Yunus al-Sadafi reported: Al-Shafi’i, may Allah have mercy on him, said, “Being withdrawn from people will earn hostility and being jovial with them will result in bad companions. Thus, be between an introvert and an extrovert.”

عن يُونُس بْن عَبْدِ الأَعْلَى الصَّدَفِي قال الشَّافِعِي رحمه الله الانْقِبَاضُ عَنِ النَّاسِ .مَكْسَبَةٌ لِلْعَدَاوَةِ وَالانْبِسَاطُ إِلَيْهِمْ مَجْلَبَةٌ لِقُرَنَاءِ السُّوءِ فَكُنْ بَيْنَ الْمُنْقَبِضِ وَالْمُنْبَسَطِ
