Introverts are more trustworthy and loyal
11 benefits of being introverted
As an introvert, I felt from childhood that something was very strange about me. Growing up was challenging as I didn't act like most other kids and spent a lot of time thinking and doing things on my own.
Growing up, I avoided social interactions and parties that all of my friends loved. I kept feeling that something was wrong with me.
But when I was alone in my room the world felt all right. Even great. It was my own sweet world full of endless possibilities and I could do and create anything my mind could evoke in my wildest fantasies.
The sheer joy of solitude is something that mostly introverts experience. While some may view introversion as a disadvantage, there are numerous advantages to being an introvert.
We may not enjoy chatting with random strangers or wasting our time in social gatherings or even going out into the world unless we have to, but we have our own unique skills, qualities, and perks that make it enable us to live happy, prosperous lives in our own way.
Are you an introvert?
Do you feel that you are different?
Would you prefer to be alone
Do you enjoy your own company?
Tired of talking too much or being with people for too long?
Congratulations! You are likely an introvert.
Introverts like me prefer to spend their time in quiet surroundings with minimal stimulation. As we socialize, we often feel drained and feel the need to be alone to recharge.
Why? Our minds react very differently to dopamine than they do to extroverts.
Introverts are usually born as they are. However, our parenting and childhood experiences, such as teasing or bullying or being forced to be like others, can lead to social anxiety and lead us to find peace in solitude.
But not all introverts are alike. We are all different people and we all behave in certain ways, even if we have some similar characteristics.
Here are some signs that you are an introvert:
Introverts prefer to spend their time alone rather than going out with friends or being actively social.
Introverts are usually very creative and enjoy doing individual activities such as writing, painting, reading, gardening and the like.
Introverts would rather spend their time with their small circle of close friends than at a crazy party.
Introverts work best alone.
Introverts don't like unnecessary social interactions and hate small talk with people.
Introverts prefer intimate, face-to-face interactions over crowds.
An introvert closely observes his surroundings and effectively processes information to his advantage.
Introverts can accurately read other people's facial expressions and body language.
Introverts never seek approval or approval from others because they are self-employed and have strong beliefs in their abilities.
Introverts are calculatory speakers; they think carefully before expressing their opinion.
Introverts value "alone time" the most, as it is essential to the survival of their soul, as is water and oxygen to their body.
Introverts aren't necessarily shy.
The idea that introverts are shy is perhaps the biggest myth about introverts. Yes, some of us are shy, but not all introverts are shy. Some introverts are pretty confident and can be very funny and charming.
Shyness usually refers to the feeling of fear and nervousness in a social situation. Introverts usually don't feel nervous when talking to people in social settings.
You just feel drained and exhausted. An introvert avoids social interactions as he will need to recharge later after feeling drained.
We just like to save our energy for better and more meaningful things. And that's one of the best perks of being an introvert.
Introversion is not a disease
In a world where extroverts are celebrated and rewarded, being an introvert can seem like a disadvantage. Extroverts get all the attention, opportunity, and fun.
Extroverts become popular and are good at pleasing people, which gives them better opportunities to thrive in life. In the meantime, as an introvert, you can be ignored and your efforts and work can go unnoticed.
But don't be discouraged. Just because you're an introvert doesn't mean you can't be successful because you prefer solitude to noise.
In fact, there are many benefits to being an introvert. There are many successful introverts who are more popular and successful than extroverts.
Why It's Better To Be An Introvert: 11 Benefits Of Being Introverted
Not only are introverts better than their extroverted counterparts, we also have certain advantages over extroverts. They may be popular, but we get things done.
Here are some benefits of being more introverted, and some areas where introverts shine brighter than others with their unique traits and benefits:
1. We are deep thinkers
Extroverts may be doers, but introverts are able to analyze and observe any situation and figure out likely solutions to any problems they face.
Extroverts are more inclined to talk to process their thoughts, but it can be problematic when they need to focus on the details.
Introverts prefer not to share their opinions until they have thought things through and know they can add value. This can be a great benefit in times of confusion and chaos.
2. We are more creative
Extroverts tend to drown their inner voice by overly focusing on social interactions and activities. Introverts prefer to spend their time alone, which lays the foundation for creativity.
Since we don't like to follow trends, we tend to be drawn to the unusual and obscure. This leads to the development of new perspectives, insights and unique & original ideas.
3. We are clever
Because introverts are wired differently, they tend to be very careful and make smart decisions. By carefully looking at each aspect, we have a specific advantage when it comes to analyzing a person's character, solving problems, and thinking critically.
By gaining a deeper understanding through observation and reflection, introverts have better judgment in life. We make sure that we choose the most effective course of action that we will not regret later.
4. We are excellent listeners
Quiet and calm by nature, introverts really listen to the people they care about and try to understand their thoughts and feelings.
We often take mental notes and can thus react sensitively and help our friends in need. Because we process information carefully and in depth, we perceive more. That makes us more trustworthy and reliable than extroverts.
5. We make loyal friends
When it comes to relationships and friendships, quality is more important than quantity to introverts. We have fewer friends because we are very picky about who we let into our lives. The relationships we develop are nurtured for a lifetime.
Introverts are not interested in superficial relationships and we love making deep and meaningful bonds. Because introverts have fewer friends, we surround ourselves with friends who are loyal and trustworthy.
6. We are independent
Introverts are more self-sufficient than extroverts when trying to develop and lead a life of freedom. Introverts prefer to work independently and are able to work without much supervision.
In a professional setting, we often feel that group projects and work teams are ineffective and affect our productivity. Managers trust introverts more because they are able to carry out projects on their own.
7. We are not looking for external validation
We enjoy our own thoughts more than what others think of us. Introverts are satisfied with their own subjective approval and evaluation as if they were seeking outside validation.
We focus more on pursuing and achieving our life goals than on what others have to say about us. While it may seem pompous and arrogant to most, introverts place a higher value on their own opinion of themselves and their own standards.
8. We may speak less, but when we do - we make our point clear!
Unlike extroverts, we think carefully and evaluate all options before commenting or expressing our opinion.
As deep thinkers, we are very clear with our thoughts and understand what we need to say in any situation in order to be heard. Introverts don't just speak to make a point or to respond.
We make sure our message gets across clearly when we speak, and it has some value for the listener. Because we are great listeners ourselves, we are aware of the needs of others. So when we open our mouths we definitely have something important to say.
9. Introverts can really concentrate
Introverts devote their time to what is really important rather than paying attention to socializing. Since we are naturally withdrawn, it is easy for us to hide from the world and earnestly focus on achieving a goal or a task.
When there are no distractions, introverts immerse themselves in various solitary and creative activities over a long period of time. Our ability to focus on whatever interests us makes us experts in our areas of interest.
10. We have intuitive gifts because we observe everything
As deep thinkers and intellectuals, we like to invest enough time to think abstractly, identify patterns and analyze situations.
This gives us the opportunity to make accurate observations from a different perspective. With our valuable observations, intuitive introverts can easily find the best possible solution for any task and challenge.
These intuitive “gifts” make us special, whether we want to admit it or not.
11. We are very happy to be alone
The idea of being alone with your own thoughts, feelings, and self-development projects can be very stimulating for an introvert. The joy and bliss we experience in solitude is unparalleled.
When we don't have to explain ourselves to others and we can be all alone, we can really and completely be ourselves in that moment. We are deep thinkers. That is why we love reflection and introspection.
It helps us find our own flaws and strengths, work on ourselves, invest in our dreams, and facilitate our growth. This is perhaps one of the greatest advantages of being an introvert.
A world of its own
Alone in solitude has a unique power that only introverts can feel.
It makes us who we are inside. We don't feel lonely when we're alone. We love it. For us, enjoying our "alone time" can be an exciting and stimulating part of the day.
Since we are not looking for confirmation from others, we are satisfied all alone. We give ourselves the best advice on life and manage to find the best solution in every situation.
We don't depend on others to make us feel good. This turns introverts into powerful people who can analyze and complete any task they are set to undertake.
