In the middle of a conversation I had with a friend recently, I tried to describe a theoretical person's living situation.
This person is extroverted, in that he craves social communication, but due to his say, important exam, he has been spending more time alone, furiously studying. He has spent so much time alone that he now appreciates solitude. Put simply, our theoretical person is extroverted but also introverted, which is its exact opposite.
Is there a word or saying to describe a situation like that?
Something that is both one way and another.
It wouldn't have to apply to people only, various situations may call for the same word. I first described it with oxymoronic, which was the closest word I knew to whatever fits the puzzle.
Which word should I use?
