Not everyone is a party person. Think again if you’ve ever wanted to be more social and outgoing.
Most people consider being introverted to be asocial, incomplete, or disadvantageous. Actually, these are different concepts. Introverts are thought to be unlucky or unsuccessful in life, but they actually have unique characteristics towards their environment and life.
These features can strengthen your personality and lay the groundwork for you to be a successful person. It is up to you to turn these features into advantages.
” Contrary to popular belief, social skills of introverts are not undeveloped. They can also enjoy socializing, but then they want to put on their pajamas and find peace in their homes. They are very meticulous in spending their time and often devote their social energies to close friends, colleagues, and family. They listen more than speak, think before speaking, and often like to express themselves by writing. They always prefer deep conversations over superficial conversations. ” ― Susan Cain
1) Introverts Can Fill Their Own Energy
How can an introverted person renew their energy? A little time alone will be enough most of the time. While other people feel the need to spend time outside with many people, reading a book, watching a movie, playing a game is enough for them to refresh themselves.
2) Observation Skills Improved
Looking at things from the outside gives them a different perspective and an opportunity to observe. This allows them to succeed in tasks that often require creativity and problem-solving skills. Most scientists, musicians, inventors, and writers are introverts.
3) They Build Solid Friendships
Introverts indeed have fewer friends than other people, but their friendships are often more solid and meaningful. Besides being relaxed and free, having a few good friends is enough for them.
4) They don’t talk superficially about what they talk about
In group conversations, what people say while speaking can sometimes be deep and sometimes superficial. Introverts often avoid having a superficial conversation about something they don’t know or are unsure of. What they say about the topics they talk about are generally thoughtful and depth, adding to the subject.
5) They Gather Information Until They Expertise On A Subject
They dedicate themselves to continuous improvement and acquiring new knowledge in their interests and work. This allows them to keep themselves up to date and have a more profound knowledge of the topics.
“Most introverts think they don’t know enough until they know everything about something.” ― Marti Olsen Laney
6) They Become a Good Listener
In general, people are more comfortable sharing their thoughts and feelings with introverts, knowing that they will listen.
7) They Are Successful in Seeing Risks
Due to their cautious nature, an introvert can more easily detect crises and risks that may occur in life and business.
8) They Can Do Their Business In The Background
Since being in the spotlight is not essential for them, they can complete their work quietly and unnoticed and influence people. Most extroverts need an introverted person.
9) They Want to Feel Free
They generally value individuality and do not need help or audience. Although they are very successful in individual work, they often think that teamwork will slow them down.
10) They May Question Too Much, And Think Too Much
An introverted person has a structure that is suitable for constantly questioning themselves and the environment they are in. The natural way for them is to discover themselves, not the outside. That’s why they think a lot about individual and social issues.
Instead of wishing to be more extroverted, you can live life and be successful by embracing these traits.
