In psychology, the categorization of personality traits is accepted. It is believed that extraversion is manifested in the orientation of a person's libido to the outside world.
The introvert, on the other hand, prefers thinking and imagination to communicating with real people and aspects of life. Today the word "introvert" is almost a stigma, meaning a closed and insecure person. Meanwhile, there are quite a few myths around this concept, which should be debunked.
Introverts don't like to talk. In fact, such people prefer to just keep quiet when they have nothing to say. For them, it seems better than just splashing out a stream of words, keeping the conversation going. On the other hand, introverts will happily jump at the opportunity to talk about a topic that is really interesting to them. Then, perhaps, he will not be silenced. And don't confuse introverts with autists.
Introverts are humble people. In fact, modesty has nothing to do with introversion. This character trait does not imply fear of people. It's just that an introvert will look for a reason for his communication with a person. He will not communicate for the sake of communication. Therefore, in order to talk to an introvert, you need to start a conversation, eventually looking for points of contact. And do not think about politeness, fearing of offending a "modest" person.
Introverts are rude people. Indeed, introverts do not seek to abide by the generally accepted rules of society, which imply courtesy and bowing. These people just want to be honest with them. But in most situations, society does not provide such an opportunity. Usually the behavior requires some effort to adapt oneself to other people. Introverts find it tedious. At the same time, their behavior may seem rude, but in fact it is just a manifestation of themselves.
Introverts don't like people. In fact, the situation is just the opposite. Friends are very important for introverts, because these people can be counted on one hand. But if someone is lucky, and an introvert has accepted him into the circle of his close people, then we should expect that he will become a devoted ally. You just have to win his trust, and he will reward his friend what he deserves.
Introverts don't like to be in public. In fact, introverts love to be in public, they just don't like doing it for too long. After all, they are confused by the difficulties that accompany public activities. But introverts quickly absorb information and experience, they do not need to think long about what is happening around them. That is why it is enough for them to stay in society for a short time to get all the necessary information. Now you need to "recharge" at home, in silence. It's so important for an introvert.
Introverts constantly strive to be alone. It is worth saying that introverts are great at being alone with their own thoughts. These people think a lot and know how to literally dream in reality. Introverts love to see challenging, interesting problems, problems, or puzzles to solve. But what is the point in the solution, if there is no one to share your discovery or success with? Introverts will then feel very lonely. Therefore, they crave full and sincere communication, but with only one person at a time.
Introverts are strange people. In fact, these people are individualists. They will never follow the crowd, striving to be "like everyone else." Introverts want to be appreciated for their own style or way of life. These people think of themselves, so they often challenge traditions, familiar and normal things. After all, they make their decisions without looking at trends or popular things. This is why society sometimes calls them strange.
Introverts are actually ordinary fools. Introverts are those who predominantly look inward and give meaning to their own emotions and thoughts. However, this does not mean that they are stupid and that they cannot consider all that is happening around. It's just that introverts pay much more attention to what's going on inside them. Sometimes from the outside, because of this, they look stupid.
Introverts don't know how to relax and have fun. In fact, these people are just as relaxed as everyone else. Noisy clubs or crowded places are just not suitable for them. Introverts will choose their home or nature. They do not want to seek adventure and experience an adrenaline rush from it. If there is noisy around or a lot of events are happening, then the introvert will prefer to withdraw into himself. Scientists have proven that these people are too sensitive to the neurohormone dopamine. It's just that extroverts and introverts have different dominant neural connections, you just have to come to terms with it.
Any introvert can become an extrovert if they want to. In fact, changing yourself is not easy. In this case, the psychotype cannot be changed at all. It is worth appreciating the temperament and contribution to humanity of introverts. Silverman's 1986 research showed that as IQ levels rise in society, the number of introverts increases.
Introverts are deeply insecure people. This opinion is constantly accompanied by introverts. However, there is no connection between such a psychotype and the presence of any deep complexes. The world is full of notorious extroverts. Similarly, it would be absurd to assert, for example, that a sanguine person is completely devoid of complexes, but a phlegmatic person is full of them. So these concepts should not be confused. And in general, are there any people without complexes?
Introverts have a boring life. Many people think that introverts simply need fun, they have a boring life. However, one should not judge by oneself. Meanwhile, this myth often leads to quarrels between introverts and their loved ones. There is no need to forcefully try to entertain such people, they themselves are able to come up with something to their liking. And let it seem boring and strange to someone. But in the head some tasks can be solved. Introverts are able to entertain themselves within themselves.
Introverts are all misanthropes. This myth otherwise presents the first on our list. Of course, this is not true. And there can be no question of some kind of purposeful dislike for humanity. Introverts just don't like being in crowds. But with individual individuals, they feel quite comfortable, adoring humanity as a whole.
Introverts cannot become friends. Those who constantly forcibly impose their opinion and their idea of the surrounding reality on them will not be able to make friends with these people. An attempt to forcibly entertain and coerce into some generally accepted action will also end in failure in a relationship. If a person in the company sits on the sidelines and is silent, with a normal expression on his face, then you should not pester him with questions about life and well-being and call him for a frank conversation. After all, such a state for an introvert is quite natural. But such people have a rich inner world, are capable of creativity. These are not at all the gloomy silent people as they are believed to be. An introvert will certainly open up to his real friend and show his whole rich inner world.
