Wise Library 1985/ Margaret W. Lavigne
Are you being comfortable to speak in public? Are you being comfortable in making one-on-one conversation with strangers? Where your energy comes from? Are you being comfortable when you walk into a room of strangers?
Generally, introverts secure more energy from being alone than from being with people that spending time with others somehow drain their energy and they have to refuel their energy by being alone. Most people are on an introvert-extrovert spectrum, having a combination of both personality qualities. Anyone can possess any of introvert qualities, either visible or invisible. Some people become more of an introvert as they have gotten older and some grow to be more extravert as they grow. Some grow to be more comfortable spending time alone and enjoy solitude more than partying and gathering.
Most people are not all introvert or all extrovert. Some people adapt to whatever characteristics when they are surrounded by different people, including me. Generally, I don’t talk much with people whom I am not familiar with or being fully trusted unless I think well of him/her. In my case, I don’t feel comfortable when walking into a room of strangers especially if I am in the role of a newcomer, which drives to me the fear of being excluded due to the fact that I am not that type of person to initiate a conversation. I have high dignity and I hate to be treated indifferently. To avoid such a situation, I would rather be alone waiting to be talked than being passionate. That’s not a wise move for sure. Also, I do enjoy making a one-on-one conversation with people than making a public speech in a group. I was more extravert when I was little. However, I was told and educated to be more introvert. Both my parents believe that being a low-key person would be a wise way to survive in the world. Somehow, I grew to be silent more and more. It’s time for making a change.
Best Introvert Quotes
Introverts are often most creative when they are being alone and they enjoy being alone. Being alone is good that you are authorized to do anything you love without taking care of the needs and emotions of others. You don’t have to compromise your needs and wants. Time is all yours and you are authorized to utilize your time for your own entertainment or anything constructive.
Allow yourself being alone to recharge your energy and develop independent thinking. When we are being in a group most of the time, we tend to lose the ability to develop independent thinking that we are more likely to follow the crowd unconsciously or not.
