6. Talking over the phone for us is torture.
Introverts want an extrovert to know that talking over the phone for them is torture. So make sure you do not call us over the phone. We will disappoint you to the core. It is better if you send us a voicemail, text or email us rather than dial our number on your phone.
Even if we (accidentally) receive the call, we will fervently wish you to disconnect it as soon as possible.
Do us a favor. Maybe just delete our numbers? What’s say?
7. We don’t want you to add us to group chats on social media
‘Groups’ are not our thing. ‘Solo’ is our thing. We can still manage group outings from time to time, with our intimate kins. But keeping a track of the conversation going on in group chats on communicative apps is NOT our cup of tea!
We simply suck at it. Most importantly, the constant inbox notifications interrupt us from our focused thinking.
8. Don’t force us to speak up.
Have patience with us. We do speak. And we speak A LOT. We just need the right comfort, the right dose of understanding, the proper listening skills from you and we will keep going on and on.
The more you force us to speak, the more we will retire into our shell. Introverts need some time to process and contemplate before they speak.
9. Don’t complete our unfinished sentences!
“So the other day I meet this guy….” “And you have a crush on him, right?”
“No. Let it be.”
Opening up for introverts is a bit difficult, so when you witness us performing our masterstroke of opening up, carefully pouring our hearts out, do not complete our sentences. It cuts our conversation flow. It feels like you violated our boundary and reduces our chances of ever providing you with a glimpse of our inner world.
Introverts experience the beauty of the world in a way different from extroverts. But that does not make introverts an ‘odd creature’. They are beautiful in their own way as you are in your own way.
I wish, as well as everybody else, to be perfectly happy; but like everybody else, it must be in my own way. ~ Jane Austen
