Ambiverts or as many prefer to call them outgoing introverts have the most psychologically stable personality when compared to introverts and extroverts. They possess both extroverted and introverted traits, which give them the advantage (if they know how to implement these traits ) to thrive in their social and professional life while maintaining a healthy mindset.
In this post, I gathered a list of celebrities who are ambiverts. They are well known and loved for being who they are: ambiverts.
7 Famous Ambiverts We All Know and Love
1. John Lennon
Founder and co-vocalist of the Beatles, John Lennon is one of the most famous musicians of all time.
His legacy still lives on even after 40 years of his death. John’s personality type is often debated, but most people agreed that he’s either INFP or ENFP. That’s because he showed signs of having both introverted and extroverted traits through his style of writing and the way he dresses and talks during interviews, which eventually makes him an ambivert.
2. George Carlin
George Carlin is America’s favorite stand-up comedian. He’s also an actor and author.
Seeing him performing on stage and throwing all sorts of colorful words, one can never deny that he was an extroverted verbal communicator as it was obvious he was born to entertain. But he also had introverted traits such as being a thinker and preferring to work alone. He was described as ‘exceptionally creative and original and possesses a touch of the unusual. His approach to problems is unique and he dares to wander from the beaten path. These traits balanced his personality to one of an ambivert.
3. Leonardo DiCaprio
The first thing that comes to mind after hearing his name is the word ‘Titanic’ haha. He’s one of those actors in Hollywood who can fit into any role given to them. That’s why he’s “the king of the world” as some refer to him.
It’s actually a bit tricky to conclude Leonardo DiCaprio’s personality type. We know that he’s charming and generally seems to be an easy-going guy. But he also said that he’s an introvert when it comes to women. “I’ve always been a slow starter. My first date was with a girl called Cessi. We had a beautiful relationship over the phone all summer and then when we met I couldn’t look her in the eye”. He definitely has the traits of an ambivert.
4. Angelina Jolie
Gorgeous Angeline is an A-rated Hollywood actress and a humanitarian that found her way to the heart of millions around the world through her acting and goodness of heart. I never doubted her good intentions on TV.
Angelina is a balanced mix of an introvert and an extrovert. She’s bold, acts confidently, and she’s a good public speaker and conversationalist. She also likes having alone time for herself. She said in an interview in 2005 that “She loves to spend a lot of time by herself because it helps her develop as a person.” she also confessed that she’s very careful when making new friends and that she likes to meet people on how terms rather than following the crowd.
5. Johnny Depp
Captain Cool Jack Sparrow! The thing about Johnny is that he has a fan base that includes all age levels. From children to teens to adults. He has a quirky kid-like charm that will force you to admire him.
Johnny is more introverted than extroverted. He’s described as “an analytical thinker, capable of great concentration and theoretical insight.”
He also replied when asked about his past and if he still thinks that he’s an outsider now that he’s grown and become famous, by saying: “I don’t know. I’m still shy and very wary of the world. I felt so out of place growing up..”
However, this doesn’t hide the fact that he has extroverted traits. He enjoys performing before an audience and he’s quite charming no doubt about that! The paparazzi also proved that he can pretty much be the life of a party if he wanted to, which makes him a typical ambivert.
6. Marilyn Monroe
The feminine icon said once in an interview with Georges Belmont (1960) “I like people, but sometimes I wonder how sociable I am. I can easily be alone and that doesn’t bother me.”
Marilyn was a sensual woman and so full of charm, it was said that no one could resist her. You’d think that a woman with her reputation would bathe in the attention she was getting. But Marilyn was a bit of a loner and she always said that she liked spending time at her house reading books. Guess her personality being a mix of both introversion and introversion is what made her more seductive and mysteriously attractive to others.
7. Princess Diana
Princess Diana’s personality was a combination of pure and bold. Even if you just watch clips of her now. You can tell that the late Princess of Wales was a calm and shy person. She had that quiet serenity about her. But she was also sassy sometimes- going beyond what the royal family sees as appropriate whether in her fashion sense or her public statements.
She had charisma and she wasn’t the kind to be easily led around. That’s exactly what made the British public and the whole world adore her. She was a true ambivert.
