I have had time during this recovery period to reflect on myself, and I must share that I am truly and introvert. This no doubt plays a big part in my being a writer. People would never guess many things about introverted people. Even an introvert may not know others do the same things until they read about them. Here are some widely unknown facts about introverts.
1. They Make Themselves Laugh
They prefer their own company at times. They like their ideas, they love daydreaming, creating, reading, watching a movie, relaxing, and they genuinely make themselves laugh at times. They will make you laugh too, but only if they feel comfortable enough to share their humor with you.
2. They Need to Be Alone to Recharge
Introverts need to be alone to recharge. People tend to think that introverts are socially awkward, shy and boring people. Nothing could be further from the truth. They value genuine relationships and will have deep conversations at length.
3. They Wished Others Loved as Deeply as They Do
Since an introvert thinks deeply and cares about genuine relationships, an introvert loves deeply.
4. They Don’t Like Unexpected Visitors
They do not like unexpected anything, but they especially do not like unexpected visitors. They have their time mapped out. They know what they are doing for the day. They do not like distractions. They have put a lot of thought into how they want their day to go. If you unexpectedly visit, you throw it all off.
5. They Love Spending Time with Their Kids, But They Need Downtime Too
Kids come along with their own personalities, which mean that they can be extroverted. It is fun to watch extroverts in action and witness how people interact, but an introvert still needs alone time from their kids to recharge. Being introverted makes one a great parent: They are able to answer the why is of life’s mysteries; they are patient, love their kids tremendously.
6. Attention-Seeking Behaviors Annoy Them
They do not like being the center of attention, and it annoys them when people act fake in order to get attention.
7. They will not answer the Phone if They Don’t knows Who’s Calling
They also will not answer the phone if they know who it is at times. It is nothing personal, but there are several reasons they might not want to talk now. They could be going through something and need to think about it. They might be in the middle of a project.
8. They are, Usually, Not Judging You
An introvert is quiet, observant and in deep thought most of the time. When they are out in public, they usually look around at everyone. They might people-watch to see what is going on. At times, it is amusing.
9. They Get Distracted Easily
Too much stimuli is not a good thing for introverts. They enjoy working in quiet environments, away from others. They get distracted by certain noises, which can include water dripping from a faucet, non-rhythmic clatter and a variety of sounds that become annoying. Soothing sounds do not bother them.
10. They are not in a Bad Mood
An introvert is usually thinking about something. They think about things all day long. Their brains are constantly on the go. When someone sees an introvert, they invariably form an opinion that they are in a bad mood when nothing could be further from the truth. If you ask an introvert if they are happy, they will usually tell you that they are. If you get to know an introvert and they consider you as a true friend, they will be one of the most interesting people you will ever have a conversation with.
