Quiet Ones : The frequently misunderstood:\r\nListening to the spiciest gossip and the craziest stories is what fascinates everyone in the first go. \u2018The life of party\u2019 grabs all the attention through the impeccable communication skills but how about that guy sneaking in the corners\u2026The silent in all\u2026 The listener of the group?\r\nWell that misunderstood dumb fellow is actually the sharpest brain of among you. This could possibly be hard to digest but is indeed a fact.\r\nIt is a common notion and the first instinct of the society to consider the ones who talk less to be simple, na\u00efve, 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.\r\nThose who talk less are great observers- The time an extrovert spends in chatting and socializing with others, is utilized by an introvert in observing the surroundings. They get to study people and the environment and hence form opinions. Their conservative and not so interactive nature gives them ample time for it.\r\nThose who talk less value and appreciate other\u2019s 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. \r\nThey are conscious of what they speak- they do not prefer to mutter out what they feel every now and then. \u2018Talking to the point\u2019 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 the observations and try to learn from an extrovert\u2019s mistake and hence trying to make better decision for themselves. \r\nThey take time to analyze and respond back- people who talk less do not jump to conclusion directly. They grasp as much information as possible. 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 \r\nThey have an independent mind-set- since introverts do not have a spread 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... \r\nThey have time for self care- spending time in solitude rather than partying gives them time for soul searching and personal growth. As a result of it they have better emotional and psychological health. \r\nSo 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.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nCopyright @The Minds Journal\r\nAll rights reserved.
