17 Things An Introvert Wants You To Know

Things Introvert Wants You To Know

I’ve always been an introvert. There’s nothing quite like relaxing by myself with a good book.

Even if I don’t have anything to occupy myself with, I’ll just sit and dream. I’m the most forgettable person in almost all situations and I love that.

This is what it’s like to be an introvert.

1. I crave solitude

Don’t get me wrong, I care deeply for those close to me but I also love having time to myself. Without people around, I can really concentrate on the things I’m passionate about.

I can do it all the way I want to and not think about how others would react. I can keep myself busy and I don’t really want to do the things others do when they hang out.

2. I get easily bored by conversations

I hate having to talk for the sake of it. Meaningless chatter just doesn’t sound right to me even though I force myself to do it now and then so I don’t seem rude.

3. I can’t handle spontaneous invitations

I’m a planner. It’s what I do. I have most of my days planned out well. I even plan my leisure hours when I can just lounge around and chill without having to be productive.

4. I’m not entirely honest when I want to avoid something

I do try to tell it like it is, but if I’m just too tired, I’ll just make up a good excuse that will allow me to maintain my friendship with the person who has invited me while saving me from a social situation I don’t want to be in.

5. I can’t handle crowds

If I’ve had to spend way too much time with others who I’m not really close to and if they are too many people and too much noise, I’ll just break down and cry no matter where I am at that moment.

I Prefer A Small Circle

6. I will go to great lengths to hide from people

Introvert wants to hide from people. When I’m feeling too overwhelmed, I don’t care where I go as long as it is a private place. I’ve even spent some time hiding in a dirty toilet stall in a public place just so I could have a few moments of peace.

7. Not everything I obsess over is useful

I do have moments when I’m considering the deeper questions about life, the universe, and everything.

But sometimes, my analytical abilities don’t serve me well. I obsess over meaningless quarrels for ages and ages. An introvert doesn’t always want to obsess over what is useful.

8. I don’t care for too many people

9. It feels like I’m in a play every time I’m in a new social situation

Every time I meet someone new, I feel like I’m putting on a show. I’m constantly telling myself to look the in the eye, to look like I know what I’m talking about, to stand up straight, and so on. I’ve memorized a number of tips that help me look more interested.

10. Don’t trust your initial judgment of me

I’ve had friends tell me that they didn’t like me too much when were first introduced to me. I can be reserved and that makes me look impolite. It’s just that I need a while to put myself at ease so I can open up better

I Reveal Myself In Layers

11. I can’t flit from topic to topic

As an introvert, I measure my words before I say them out loud. But most people tend to move through conversations very fast and this makes it very hard for me to participate because I can’t keep up.

I Always Felt Like I'm Not From This Generation

12. I’m not good at expressing myself

I Could Like You

13. I just want to be invisible at times

Introvert wants to be invisible at times. I just wish I could hide in my own spot, cut off the rest of the world, and be perfectly alone. Of course, I don’t want to be alone forever, just for a short time.

At the same time, I need to say those words so that you don’t think I’m glad to be rid of you.

Sometimes I Feel Super Social And Charming
