Introverts prefer mountains | ScienceDaily

This is really interesting, given I’m in the midst of Mountain Leader qualifications…

This is the first study to link extraversion and introversion with the preference for mountains vs. ocean/open spaces. The study is under review for the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology. Oishi cautions that there is more research that will be collected to determine the underlying mechanisms of the association, and to see if the results are replicated on a larger scale.

I think the results are as much symbolic as they are actual. For example, I equally enjoy walks along the beach as I do walking in the mountains.
