Usually when people encounter the word introvert the first thing that sinks into their minds are the thoughts of the person being shy, timid and loner. However, what they’re seeing are only the outer shell of an introvert person. If people just try to research what the word introvert truly means they will notice that in psychology it means “a person characterized by concern primarily with his or her own thoughts and feelings”. In truth, an introvert is not someone who is weak, frail or shy; an introvert is just a kind of person who values his or her own thoughts more than what other people thinks. Isn’t that sometimes what we should do?
Nowadays, being an introveris really hard, people try to look down on you, other people thinks that because your not popular they can just push you around and because you don’t talk much it means you are a coward.
In reality, introverts think a lot and if given the chance they can exhaust you of all the ideas they have, of all the facts they store in their heads and all the amazing ideas they can generate. Actually, according to psychology.suite101.com, introverts are not afraid of exposing what they think, they are just cautious about revealing their thoughts. They don’t really hesitate to speak out or take action for themselves but they tend to think it through first. Introverts are very private people; they tend to process their feelings, information, and remarks internally. Introverts can also be social but they don’t reveal much about themselves to other people than what extraverts do.
Why Introverts prefer to be alone?
Though we all know introverts love to be alone because they are very private people, there is also another reason why introverts prefer seclusion rather than inclusion. It is because Introverts gather their energy in solitude. After a party or a social event, though introverts might really have fun in it, at the end of the day, it exhausts them a lot, being in a crowded place just drains their energy big time and the only way to get it back is to do things in private. I think it is safe to say that privacy is something introverts can’t live without. If all people need some privacy, introverts really need all the private time they got. Though sometimes, they still go to parties and go out with their friends, they only do it because they feel obliged about it.
Why introverts don’t talk much?
As what I said above they don’t like to reveal much about themselves and talking to people is also a means of revealing yourself to them (one way or another). Nonetheless, introverts don’t talk a lot also because they usually are picky of the topics they want to talk about. They typically choose those topics they know they have something to say, or those they are interested in or those topics they think is significant to talk about. If given a choice sometimes, introverts would just sit and listen rather than talk because for them it is meaningful to learn about things than to argue about trivial stuff.
