Solitude matters, and for some people, it's the air they breathe.
- Susan Cain
Have you ever come across with an introverted person? What was your first impression about them? Was it a pleasing experience for you?
I guess your first thought was, "What's wrong with him/her?"
An introvert usually come across as very quiet, reserved and shy in nature. They are judged and misunderstood a lot by people around them and are often tagged with titles like Proud, Rude, Unsociable, Short tempered, Angry, Unapproachable, Aloof, etc.
But do they really deserve those titles or tags though?
There are lot of good traits of an introverted person and they struggle a lot to survive in society.
Finding alone time-
For introverts their solitude is a basic need. They are the most calm and at peace when they are alone. You can hardly ever find them complaining of getting bored or feeling lonely.
Introverts have this super-power of being invisible when they are in a group. Well not literally invisible but since they stay very quiet and prefer not to cross anyone's path, no one notices them and they prefer it to be that way.
Good Observant and listener-
Introvert people don't prefer to talk much but that doesn't mean they are not interested in knowing people around. They are very keen observers by nature and they are very good listeners as well. If you somehow make an introvert person as your good friend, you are in with a friend who will listen to anything and everything you have to say. And they are very good at keeping secrets as well, which means you can rely on them and keep them in your trust worthy circle.
Introverts are souls of heavy thinkers. They over analyze and over think on each and every matter. But even though, it might make it look like a bad trait, it has it's own pros. They don't judge people very easily. They analyze everything from each and everyone's point of view and make up their mind that may be the person had their own reason to do what ever they have done.
Starting a conversation is hard-
For introverted people starting a conversation is really hard. Doesn't matter how much close and familiar they are with a person, they usually wait for the person in front of them to start a conversation. And then they just start adding comments to the topic.
Misunderstood and underestimated by people-
Just because a person stays quiet doesn't mean they are rude or proud in nature. It just means they are not very comfortable in approaching people to talk. Just because a person always denies to go clubbing or hanging out with you, that doesn't mean they are unsociable or unapproachable, it just means they prefer to stay in quiet places rather than going to crowed places.
Introverted people get underestimated as well by people around them just because they never showcase or project their talents. Whereas these are the people with amazing hidden talents which when projected at right time leave people speechless and surprised.
These kind of people make a loving and caring life partner or friend-
Since introverts don't prefer to show their emotion much they silently take good care of people who are very important to them. They are very compassionate in nature and have different and silent ways of showing their love and appreciation.
They prefer quality friends-
Introverts prefer quality friends rather than quantity. They have very few people in their social circle on whom they trust completely and can rely on them. And if required they are ready to do anything for them.
They come across as good leaders-
These kind of people are very good leaders. They usually are very considerate and take good care of people who work under them and always keep observing everything quietly. They try to analyze each and every employee's skills and talents and utilize it at the right time.
Uncomfortable by talking about themselves-
Introverts are usually very uncomfortable in situations where they have to talk or listen to people talking about themselves. They usually becomes very conscious and anxious in such situations.
Leaving or avoiding is easier-
For them it is easier to leave or avoid situations where they have to confront someone or handle something which is difficult. They don't like confronting their own emotions as well. They feel very uncomfortable when crowded by people. And they avoid such situation because they can't handle hurting anyone's feelings.
They think before they speak-
Since they talk very less, they have a good control on their thoughts and words.
Quiet people have the loudest minds.
