how do I install packages to one single interpreter while using Pycharm?

Hi. So I'm still novice, and I'd like to learn how to install packages in such a way that they don't need to be individually done per each project I create in Pycharm. I believe my Pycharm sets up virtual environments with individual Python interpreters for each new project I make.

In fact, I believe this is related: in my Pycharm terminal I type this:

python -V
>>> Python 3.5.2

Results are different in my main terminal:

python -V
>>> Python 3.6.4

I'm using Linux Mint 18.3 Cinnamon. Thanks in advance! :)
