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.

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.

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.

10. Don’t trust your initial judgment of me

I Reveal Myself In Layers

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.

12. I’m not good at expressing myself
