Why You Shouldn't Hide Your Introversion

Let's be a little more honest with ourselves and admit that most of us are introverts. Someone accepts this and does not try to hide this fact. But the majority, succumbing to the pressure of TV and public opinion, hide their introversion and try to be guys and girls for everyone. By myself, I can say that this is tedious, and personally I have no desire to do this. I am an introvert and I am proud of it.

Today, in addition to the infographic about introverts, I want to tell you about the misconceptions that make people hide their valuable property and ignore the fact that in fact ...

The world is run by introverts who pretend to be extroverts.

Let's face it — there are a lot of introverts, and they are no worse than extroverts, and in some ways even better. After all, society has always benefited greatly from writers, artists and scientists immersed in their inner world.

Nowadays introverts live in the Network space, which is confirmed by a huge number of forums and communities.

1. What is introversion?

Introverts live as if in a human-sized walking balloon. The main feature of real introverts, as opposed to just closed people, is how they get their energy. Extroverts draw their energy from their surroundings.

They absorb the "positive energy" of the people around them, and therefore they require a large number of social interactions.

Introverts generate their own energy and, instead of taking it from others, give it away during social contact. This means that they inherently find most interactions tiring, and they need time to recharge.  Since this energy is a limited resource, they tend to see extroverts as disgusting predators trying to steal their sweet, sweet nectar of energy. That's why we need this ball of personal space.

2. How to interact with an introvert

Just because someone is an introvert doesn't mean they don't like being in company. It's just that social contacts are expensive, and he doesn't want to waste energy on anything annoying. It's wasteful.

When meeting an introvert

Say hello, be polite and relaxed, show that you have recognized and approve of his presence. It is very important for an introvert to feel welcome — he will not waste his precious energy on anyone who does not want him in his environment. If you have interesting and important news to mention, tell them. But do not impose gossip.

Now the introvert knows that you are friendly and open to interaction. But there is no need to impose a waste of energy on him if he does not have such a need.

Ta-daam! That's all you need to do!

Remember:

  • Respect the personal space (the person's ball).
  • The energy is limited.
  • Do not demand to waste energy on yourself when it is not necessary.
  • Don't take silence as an insult — it's not like that!
  • Introverts also get lonely.

3. Myths about introverts

Introverts are taciturn

That's not so. They just don't talk if they have nothing to say. They don't like idle chatter. If you talk to them about something that interests them, it will be impossible to stop them.

Introverts are shy

Shyness has nothing to do with introversion. Introverts are not afraid of people, but they need a reason for contact. They don't communicate just for the sake of communication. If you want to talk to an introvert, just talk to him. Don't be afraid to seem impolite.

Introverts are rude

Introverts often see no reason for ceremonies and exchange of pleasantries. They want everyone to be natural and honest. Unfortunately, this is unacceptable in most cases, so introverts sometimes need a lot of effort to adapt, and it's tiring for them.

Introverts don't like people

On the contrary, introverts really appreciate the few friends they have. They can count close friends on the fingers of one hand. If you are lucky enough to be an introvert's friend, you have a loyal ally for life. Once you have earned his respect as a meaningful person, he is with you.

Introverts do not like to go out into society

Nonsense. Introverts don't like to go out into society for too long. They assimilate information very quickly, and therefore they do not need to spend a lot of time in society to be "in the topic". They will go home to recharge and digest the impressions they have received. Recharging with calmness is vital for introverts.

Introverts are weird

Most introverts are individualists. They don't follow the crowd. They prefer to be appreciated for their unusual lifestyle. They think with their own heads and therefore often challenge what is considered the norm. They don't make decisions based only on what is popular and fashionable.

A world without introverts would be a world with a small number of scientists, musicians, artists, poets, cinematographers, doctors, mathematicians, writers and philosophers. Introverts cannot "improve" and deserve respect for their innate temperament and the benefits they have brought to humanity.
