The Greatest Things About Being an Introvert
The Quiet Strength of Introvert in a Fast Paced and Breakneck Extrovert World
Introverts are a distinct part of the population. Introverts have a different method of relating to and interfacing with people and circumstances than extroverts do. Extroverts love to be engaged in the world around them while introverts preferred contemplation and inner thought.
Because the majority of people are extroverts, introverts are often derided and told to become more extroverted in order to be "normal". Oftentimes, introverts are not appreciated for who they are. There are even programs to make introverts "more extroverted" or " true extroverts". However, being introverted is a viable lifestyle to be respected. Now, here are the best things to being an introvert!
