According to a research published online by the journal International Psychogeriatrics a person's personality can hide the common symptoms of depression. The study revealed that friends and family to extraverted individuals missed the signs of their depression more then those who were introverted.

 The psychologists began the study with the perspective that the friends and families of introverted individuals who suffered from a form of depression would miss the sings and symptoms. They assumed that the depressed individual would hide their emotions and pretend that nothing was wrong, embracing their introverted nature. The fact that was revealed through this study was that the complete opposite is true.

 The study found that extroverted, outgoing individuals were the ones whose family and friends missed the signs of depression. The fact that they were talkative, open and confident masked the underlying symptoms of depression. In many cases the depressed individual was not trying to hide their depression, often they didn't recognize that they were suffering from depression. Often people assume that depression looks the same with everyone and the truth is that is incorrect.

 Depression can alter the way a person thinks, their behavior, their internal feelings and eventually it affects their physical well being and overall health. This study claims that better depression detection education will help family and friends to detect depression in their loved ones before it become too late.

 Often a person can suffer from depression and they don't realize that they are depressed until they are not longer depressed. A pregnant woman who experienced uncomfortable pregnancies knew that she didn't enjoy being pregnant but didn't realize that she was depressed until after she had her baby. 

 If people can look beneath the surface of confidence they might be ale to detect signs of depression before it causes the individual too much unhappiness.
