Introverts and Extroverts are types of personalities to show what you are most comfortable with. Extroverts are outgoing and have a lot of friends. They love spending their energy with a big groups of friends. Introverts, on the other hand are reserved to themselves and have a few very close friends. Unlike extroverts, they enjoy spending their energy on being alone or in very small groups with people who they are comfortable with. There is also ambivert. This is for if you are sometimes and introvert and sometimes an extrovert.
This relates to me because in 2012, my mom showed me a ted talk on Susan Cain about The Power of Introverts in a World that Can’t Stop Talking. As well as being my first Ted Talk I watched, this was the first time I found out that I was introverted and what it was. I also realized why I act differently than others.
This is important because you’ll get to know what is best for your Mental and Social Health. For example, introverts usually feel tired when spending time in huge groups for a really long time. Also, you can understand why you or other people act a certain way, like the photo. Can you guys who is who (extrovert and introvert)? By knowing all of this, it can help people, especially teenagers with their personal growth.
We can understand why introverts need to spend time alone sometimes, while extroverts love interacting with people.
I learnt how much knowing about this can help you with understanding why people act differently than others. This has influenced my thinking because I know now not to be so confused or to judge when people socialize in a different way than I do.
I chose this issue because my dad has Asthma and I think I also have mild Asthma. Sometimes I can have some difficulty breathing, and also when I am sleeping I need high pillows in order to breath properly. This expands my learning because it can tell me what is actually happening in your body and what can be the symptoms if not properly taken care. This is relevant to me as when I was sleeping with a low pillow, I couldn’t properly breath so I had to add a few pillows and place it on top of each other, and after that I could breath properly. Another relevance to me is that when I had to the pacer test, after I did 10 laps I felt really out of breath, and had to slow down. Another relevance to me is that when I am playing my instrument, I cannot continuously play it otherwise I run out of breath. This is important because Asthma can be very deadly and sometimes people don’t even know that they actually have it. This affects teenagers because sometimes they don’t know if they have it then they will always will be having trouble breathing when doing physical activity. It also affects teenagers because all of a sudden they can have a Asthma attack, and they won’t know why this is happening, it will also affect them emotionally and mentally.
I learned that Asthma can be a very deadly and dangerous disease if not taken care properly. I also learned that if you get any symptom, you should immediately take action. My thinking of this issue is that it can be worrying and very dangerous if not treated, I think this issue should not be taken lightly as any symptom can be dangerous. My thinking has changed because before I thought Asthma could be taken lightly and that you don’t have to worry about it but know I realise that it is a very dangerous condition and it can be very deadly. My thinking has also changed because before I thought this was not a common condition but then when I was researching, I found out that over 26 million have Asthma in the U.S.A. This influences my learning about Wellness class because I learn more about our body and how it can be affected. This also influences my learning because I learned more about what dangers can be there for your health and how you can prevent it.
This picture is relevant to my issue because it shows a person who is inhaling but the person is having difficulty breathing because his lungs are blocked.
