The only people who truly understand introverts are other introverts. There are a lot of misconceptions about what introversion means. It does not mean that we are shy. It does not mean that we do not like to socialize. It does mean that we need our own space to think. We are energized by being alone, and often have to take a little alone time to recover from social situations. My daughter and I are true blue introverts, and I often laugh at some of the things that we say. In this post, I’ll share with you some things that come only from the minds of introverts.
Don’t misunderstand. Introverts love people, but it’s definitely quality over quantity. We value genuine relationships. Introverts are cool people to know. We’re often very intuitive and analytical. We’re creative and conjure awesomely innovative ideas (think Bill Gates). We can put on the extrovert hat when necessary, but it can be draining. You’ll often hear of introverted performers/public speakers adopting alter egos to characterize their public persona (think Beyoncé/Sasha Fierce). Because we spend so much time thinking and creating, the mind of the introvert can be an interesting place.
Do you consider yourself an introvert, extrovert, or a little of both? Feel free to add to this list of ‘thoughts’ from the mind of introverts
