The present study aims to explore the relationship between Jung's extraversion and introversion personality types, loneliness and aloneness during adolescence. A total of 373 adolescents aged between 15 and 19 years (M = 16.57; SD = 1.15) completed the Italian versions of the Loneliness and Aloneness Scale for Children and Adolescents and the Jung Type Indicator. Analysis shows a positive correlation between extraversion and an aversion to aloneness and between introversion and an affinity for aloneness and peer-related loneliness. Moreover, extraversion and introversion predict the extent of loneliness and aloneness. These preliminary data are discussed in light of the adolescence developmental tasks.
