Describe An Introvert Person Whom You Know

IELTS Speaking Part 2: IELTS Cue Card

Describe an introvert person whom you know.

You should say:

Who the person is? 
How well do you know him/her?
What makes him/her introverted?
And explain how you feel about this person?

Note: You will have to talk about the topic for one to two minutes. You have one minute to think about what you are going to say. You can make some notes to help you if you wish.

Model Answer 1:

Well, every person is born with or develops a unique personality or nature, and there are many who are introvert. 

Who the person is?  and How well do you know him/her?
Here, I am going to talk about my friend Jas who has an extremely reserved nature. He is my neighbor as well as my classmate, and I have never seen him talking freely and comfortably either in a neighborhood or at the school.

Not only Jass, but his entire family is also a bunch of introverts. As our community often organizes meetings and celebrations, his family never shows their presence. At school, also Jass has very few friends, and his talks are often to the point. 

What makes him/her introverted?
He never expresses his feelings or shares emotions with me, no matter how big his problem is. Another reason for his reserved nature is his obsession with technology; as he spends hours playing computer games and surfing the Internet rather than interacting with humans, he remains virtually connected with others.

Although his reserved nature keeps him focused as he doesn’t get distracted with talks while studying, this is perhaps the reason why he gets better grades than me and others, yet I recommend him to open up a little and be an extrovert. 

how you feel about this person? and Conclusion:
The fact is that human is a social animal, and without expressing our feelings and emotions, we can not develop strong bonding with others.

I certainly believe my friend will surely act upon my advice, and slowly & steadily, he will become an extrovert or give up his introverted nature. 

Model Answer 2:


  • Personally, I consider myself to be an extrovert.
  • I love spending time with people.
  • However, one of my best friends, is an introvert.

Who the person is?  and How well do you know him/her?

  • His name is Gagan.
  • He has just two or three friends including me.
  • Besides us, he barely spends time with others.
  • Even with us, it is when we insist.
  • Most of times, he is ready with an excuse for not joining us.
  • We have to push him to come out.
  • But he is not boring, when he does come out, we really enjoy his company.
  • He is a very positive person and loves to enjoy the moment rather than whining or complaining.
  • I have never seen him stressed or talking about his worries.

What makes him/her introverted?

  • I consider him an introvert because firstly if given the option he always prefers to spend time alone.
  • His hobbies include reading books and newspapers, playing online games like Chess and watching TV shows.
  • Although most of his preferred activities are indoor activities, he keeps fit as he goes for a run in the morning.
  • Secondly, he doesn’t like talking to strangers.
  • He is very comfortable with us, but he is quite shy while talking to people he doesn’t know.
  • I have seen his answers being as abrupt as just yes and no.
  • In fact, sometimes he is considered being rude, but I know he is just not comfortable.
  • Small talk doesn’t come naturally to him and he has to strain to do it.
  • So for all these reasons I consider him an introvert.
  • Despite all this, I love spending time with him. He is very caring and his positive attitude also has a positive impact on me.

how you feel about this person? and Conclusion:

  • Moreover, he is immensely knowledgeable. Whenever I spend time with him, I feel like I learn something.
