If you chose the beach, then you are in the majority. No wonder, you say: autumn begins, and all dream to extend the summer for a couple of weeks. It is not just the weather outside the window depends on your choice. Introverts and extroverts prefer a different location for a trip on vacation, and some of us the first choice landscape when they decide to move to live somewhere.

It is obvious that extroverts prefer poshumnee situation, while introverts are looking for a quiet and peaceful place. Extroverts are experiencing greater demand for "recognition" - to be and communicate with other people - and "demonstrations" - they like to attract attention and surprise others. Introverts are much less in need of such.

However, the way people adapt to different companies, including colleagues, studied in detail by scientists. Introverts work better in silence, away from places where meetings are held, where fewer external stimuli. Extroverts also perfectly happy in the buzzing cafes and noisy offices.

Another question is how we perceive the nature around us. Through a series of experiments, the researchers came to the conclusion that extroverts prefer the wide and open spaces, including beaches, whereas introverts pulls into the woods and mountains. Perhaps this is because the wooded and mountainous terrain leaves less room for "demonstration" and "recognition". Mountains and forests - a perfect place for solitude and reflection, and the beaches have a lot more to all sorts of parties.

According to scientists, a stay in the mountains does not necessarily happier than introverts, extroverts, introverts especially because, in principle, less happy. But being in the woods or mountains, they feel a lot better.

In another experiment, the base of the 613,000 people in the US data was analyzed. Objective: To trace the relationship between extroversion and introversion, and geography of the country. It turned out that among the inhabitants of the mountainous state introverts are more common than among the inhabitants of the plains.

And still had not completely clear whether the people doing introverted life in the mountains, or prone to introversion people themselves left to live?

Another experiment was conducted to study the issue. Researchers sent a different group of students on an open plain and in a secluded, wooded area, and then analyzed their level of happiness.

The experiment revealed that the type of terrain has a different effect on happiness extroverts and introverts - the latter experienced more stress in open areas than in the trees. However, the experiment has had little effect on the behavior of students, suggesting that the geography of the area can not change the person. Perhaps some of us have a choice between holiday on the beach or in the mountains can seem superficial. However, history has many examples of how people are looking for certain environmental conditions to meet their psychological needs.

Henry David Thoreau (Henry David Thoreau), American philosopher, lived for two years in a forest hut, while writing the book "Walden". He retired to delve into self-knowledge. "Solitude - the most" sociable "company in which I have ever stayed. By and large, we are more lonely among men than when we are in his own bedroom, "- he writes.

What would you say in this regard extroverts, irretrievably lost to history. They probably at this time having fun on the beach party.
