Let Them Be Themselves

“Don’t underestimate me because I am quite, I know more than I say, think more than I speak and observe more than you know” says an introvert Michaela Chung.

Introverts? They are the quietest people with the loudest minds. If I define them then they are quite people who tend to turn inward mentally and find it difficult to talk to other people. And due to this uncanny behavior they are the most misunderstood people in the world.   People tend to give them names like cold, rude, unfriendly, arrogant, sad, depressed, shy. But contrary to the popular belief, not all introverts are shy. Some may have great social lives. If I say Mahatma Gandhi was an introvert you won’t believe me. You’ll say he was so confident had great leadership qualities he can’t be an introvert. The implication is introverts don’t know how to behave socially. This is another misconception.

 

Some superior social skills. They are confident, assertive and interesting to talk. You won’t believe me Bill Gates, J. K. Rowling, Walt Disney these all are introverts. People don’t realize this because they just assume everyone with good social skills is an extrovert. Extrovert? Something that is completely different than introvert. We have to take in that Introversion is not a choice neither a lifestyle, it is an orientation. An orientation which most of the times we fail to interpret.
               According to a recent research, every 1 out of 2 or 3 people is an introvert. So if more than 1/3 of population is introvert, then why are they considered to be someone alien? Why do we have to make them feel guilty for going by themselves as they want?

 

The more freedom we give introverts the more likely they are to come out with unique solutions various problems. Susan Cain has stated that Creativity mostly comes out of introversion and place of solitude. Introverts can deliver better outcomes than extrovert as they work silently with proper planning while extroverts become over excited. Introverts just need a favorable atmosphere. They don’t hate people but just find them tiring. They need their time and space to recharge themselves regularly. Just remember readers, Introversion is not depression and it doesn’t come out of medication. Just let them be what they want to and you’ll be surprised by the astounding results thus obtained.

Being an introvert myself, I can relate so much to this! And there is nothing wrong to be an Introvert, in fact, I am proud to be an Introvert. I depend on myself and believe in myself, I know my expectation and I know my limits. I don’t get along with a mob because we Introverts are meant to stand out rather than blend in.
