The trait of introversion allows those who possess it to be their own focal source of stimulation; on the other end of its continuum is extroversion, causing a need to seek energy and inspiration externally. Jung’s work explores the tension between the desire for isolation — to be alone within one’s mental universe —and the need to participate with one's surroundings. Jung’s woven walls embody the semi- permeable membrane every individual holds between their solitary internal universe and the external one we all share.
