Why anyone is introvert? Isn’t it better to communicate more and socialize? We humans are after all social animal. Common myth about introverts is that they don’t like socializing at all. The truth is: Introverts like socializing but with a certain set of people in a limited period of time.
When bombarded with lots of people to an introvert, scientists observed a phenomenon called “social burnout” (P.S an introvert was burnt today at the stake of people :’)).They are not able to keep appearances , function less efficiently or sometimes not function at all (they just wait for the nightmare to end).
Some of the perils which is quite evident for an introvert around people are as follows:
1. To keep up the appearance and act interested when actually they would rather read a book.
2. No privacy. They are all over them and it just gets out of hand sometimes. While other personality types would get over with this breach of boundaries, for an introvert it takes a hell lot of time.
3. All the time people ask them to speak up.
Introverts don’t speak up because they don’t choose to. Period. You cannot rack out words from them for the sake of what? Just words?!
4. People consider them boring.
Introverts definition of boring is similar to the extroverts definition of fun. Sing in public? No.
This prejudice only creates a misunderstanding, many introverts are actually fun to talk to. (Ofcourse, if one would allow them to speak at the first place by themselves and not talk over it)
They are born this way, living with extroverts won’t change a thing (which they presume that it would). If only their space was respected, it would make them happy.
Socializing is important but not at the expense of someone’s peace and happiness.
