“An Introvert’s Desire For Solitude Is More Than A Preference.It Is Crucial To Our Health And Happiness.”
_____ MICHAELA CHUNG
So basically what is an “INTROVERT” and how is it to be one???
Is it a psychological disturbance, or maybe some kind of a personality disorder? Some people think this personality as a kind of personality problem. Actually, there’s nothing wrong with this kind of people, and being introvert is not a personality disorder. It is a kind of personality, mentioned by psychologist Carl Jung, which is generated from his grand theory about personality. According to Jung, introverts are more inwardly focused, diverting their energy to perceiving the world around them and responding to the thought processes that it creates.
This was all the bookish stuff let see the reality that introverts face day to day. Everyone knows that every cloud has a silver lining same way every personality has its own advantages and disadvantages, still we live in a world where we cannot escape from reality that modern cultures seem to favor an “Extroversion” more than an “Introversion”. We are in a world where cut throat competition exists for every single thing be it for a school admission or for some job. So, each and every person gets prepared for these upcoming competitions right from the time they are born be it school or college we are always told how to stand out from others and to do this everyone needs to be an excellent speaker and they should know how to interact with people. Here, many people underestimate introverts because they feel that they are basically quiet, reserved, shy or even unsociable. I personally don’t feel it’s true. Mistaking introversion for shyness is a common delusion.
People think that introverts are supposed to like being alone but I feel that’s not what introverts actually like. Being introvert doesn’t mean that they hate company of people its just that they only like to spend time with a bunch of people whom they are comfortable with. Basically if we want to define introverts on basis of energy we can say introverts expend energy when they are around people, and they recharge in their time alone. The reverse holds true for extroverts. These people have their own mind which works from inside and not outside. They won’t tell others about their problems and never show their emotions impetuously. They keep their problems to themselves and easily don’t share. Because of this they are misjudged or misunderstood many a times.
Introverts are not different. They also equally strive to do well in society and their workplace. They don’t need special treatment but they do need people who actually accept them as they are. People, being an introvert is not a disadvantage for you. It’s absolutely normal, you can be in your comfort zone and still do wonders.
So at last, I would like to say that being an introvert is not a crime or a personality/psychological disorder. Being an introvert is perfectly normal, there is nothing wrong in being one😄.
