Hi all, my name is An, and I'm back again with another post!
Recently, I've encountered many situations and experiences that I've come to realization that I'm a complete Introvert! I took a Psychology class, and I got to know about this also!
Contrary to what most of people think, an introvert is nota person who is shy. In fact, "shyness has an element of apprehension, nervousness and anxiety, and while an introvert may also be shy, but not necessarily, introversion itself is not shyness." (about.com)
What is an introvert by the way?
- It is a person who is energized by being alone and whose energy is drained by being around people.
What make them different from other, as opposed to an extrovert?
- Introvert people are more concerned with the inner world of the mind. They enjoy thinking, exploring their thoughts and feelings. Even introvert people who have good communication skills (not me
=[[), they still avoid social situation because being around people drains their energy.
People think that introverts are sick, really?!
- In fact, it is their choice to be alone, it is not, however, a sign of depression. It means that they either need to regain energy from being around people or they simply want the time to be with their own thought- being introspective! However, it does not mean they have conversations. Those conversations, indeed, are generally about ideas and concepts, not about what they consider trivial matters of social small talk.
Introverts make up 60& of the GIFTED POPULATION, but only 25- 40% of the general population.
Interestingly, I've found these series that these guys from the dwFilms made and posted on YouTube. I thought they are quite cool and informative. Hope you'd learn something!
