What are introverts? : Personality Check

Updated on October 1, 2012

I've come to write this article because I believe I have an introvert personality. Many people believe that introverts are often shy, aloof, quiet, don’t like to talk, weird, boring and so on. Well I guess you have to read on to know the real thing about being an introverted person.

Facts 1:

Introverts are people who focus on their inner world, they pay more attention to their thoughts and their feelings. They are more at ease with their own thoughts. They think a lot of times as well as daydream. But they could also get unhappy if they don’t have anyone to share with and have their thoughts be heard.

Facts 2: Who says an introvert is shy?

Introverts just don’t like talking unless they need to. Introvert has certainly nothing to do with shyness and they are not afraid of meeting people. They don't like chatting just for the sake of chatting. They need a good reason just like a meaningful conversation for them to interact. Try talking to them, and you'll see, he will talk a lot if he's comfortable talking with you.

Facts 3:

Introverted people can open up conversations with anyone. They enjoy chatting and listening to people and they also like going to events but limit themselves. They can be social but mostly they'd rather stay at home than mingle because they believe being around in a crowd drains their energy, thus the y need to recharge. Basically, an introvert is a person who is more strengthened by being alone rather than by being around with other people.

Facts 4:

Introverts know who their friends are and value them so much. Though some have few close ones, they can be so loyal to you once you have earned their trust and respect, then he considers you as a real friend.

Facts 5:

An introvert is more of a private person who doesn't like going out much when there's no need to. They need a little time to think before making some actions to a certain situation, and flourish their ideas by reflecting alone.

Facts 6:

Introverts maybe unaware that they are introvert and sometimes they feel weird or different about themselves. They may be wondering if this kind of personality is normal. Introverts think before doing some actions.

Being an introverted person is extremely normal,and there is nothing wrong with it. We can also do things what extroverts do. It's just that introvert "prefer" to be implosive with some things. Just because we are some kind of different doesn't mean we are out and that we don't belong. We're also human being and it's just that introverts are more happy just the way they are and think more inwardly, and that's simply it is.

      Most people make hasty decisions from time to time, which they sometimes regret. Introverts have at least one thing in their favor..since they spend some extra time considering their choices, they rarely make the wrong choices.

      We introverts aren't intentionally anti-social, we just don't care for meaningless conversations... Nice article, by the way.
