People who talk less or quiet ones are frequently misunderstood. Listening to the spiciest gossip and the craziest stories is what fascinates everyone in the first go. ‘The life of party’ grabs all the attention through the impeccable communication skills but how about that guy sneaking in the corners…The silent in all… The listener of the group?
Well, that misunderstood dumb fellow is actually the sharpest brain of among you. This could possibly be hard to digest but is indeed a fact.
It is a common notion and the first instinct of the society to consider the ones who talk less to be simple, naïve, gullible. But perhaps you are underestimating the smartest opponent. Behind their not so confident personality, these quiet ones can mysteriously possess the most intelligent attributes.
Here’re are 7 reasons why people who talk less are smarter and interesting than most:
1. Quiet people are great observers
The time an extrovert spends chatting and socializing with others is utilized by an introvert in observing the surroundings. They are chronic over-thinkers and hence move from one subject to the next inside their heads. They get to study people and the environment and hence form opinions. Their conservative and not so interactive nature gives them ample time for observing, listening and creativity. So, these people talk less!
2. Quiet ones value and appreciate other’s opinion
if you talk less, feel good about the fact that people love you for making them feel important and worth listening to. It takes patience to listen to someone attentively and hence use it to gain as much knowledge as possible. Apart from enriching your knowledge, you increase the bandwidth of your opinion and enhance communication skills.
3. They are conscious of what they speak
They do not prefer to mutter out what they feel every now and then. ‘Talking to the point’ is their style. Crisp and substantial information uttered once in the conversation by them is enough to leave you dumbstruck… They take their own decisions based on listening to what others say and observations. They try to learn from an extrovert’s mistake and make a better decision for themselves.
4. They take time to analyze and respond back
People who talk less do not jump to a conclusion directly. They grasp as much information as possible because they have strong brains. Being quite because it gives your mind a chance to wander and reflect. They prepare themselves for every possible question (which probably they would never have to answer) and hence understand the versatility in perceptions and opinions. Processing of the discussion matters to them more than verbal participation
5. They have an independent mind-set
Since introverts do not have an extraordinary social life, they do not hang out in popular circle thereby reducing the chances of getting influenced by the popular groups. They always manage to stick to their individuality. Since they are reserved they get saved from getting attached to people in order to crumble under their influence…
6. Quiet people are natural learners
People who talk less are always thirsty of knowledge. Their incredible curiosity drives them to keep learning new things. They hate gossiping with people, not because they are anti-social! They spend more time writing or reading books to expand their mind. Thanks to their rich knowledge, they don’t speak shit. Instead, enchant people with stimulating conversation.
7. They indulge in self-care
Spending time in solitude rather than partying gives them time for soul searching and personal growth. As a result, they have better emotional and psychological health. According to Susan Cain, author of the book “Quiet: The Power of Introverts”, introversion is simply the preference for less stimulation. They are not learners!
So, the next time you are judging an introvert by their first impression and consider them at a loss for not being a good communicator, think again because they can be one of those who have got most benefits, wits and smartness.
