EXTROVERSION, 1. extroversion means nothing more than being able to look outward. An extroverted personality is one who is capable of looking around the environment. A person who is capable of looking at the world around him and seeing it quite real and quite bright is, of course, in a state of extroversion. (HCOB 23 Jan 74RA) 2. the preclear ceasing to put his attention on his mind, but putting his attention on the environment. We see this happen often in the Opening Procedure of 8-C where the preclear has the room suddenly become bright to him. He has extroverted his attention. He has come free from one of these communication tangles out of the past and has suddenly looked at the environment. (Dn 55!, p. 94)
EXTROVERT, n. one whose available energy is being applied to the world and people around him rather than being applied to the past, or even to any great degree, the present. He does a lot of future planning, a lot of action. Every effort is into the future. (5112CM29B)
