How do we sum up a shy, gawky, reserved, clumsy, little bit
nerdy and a socially awkward person in one word? We call the
person an introvert! And there is nothing bad at all about
being an introvert but sad they’re misunderstood. These
qualities are beautiful but who possess any of these are
assumed to be the boring, cold type.
Not that it’s anybody’s fault that they are misunderstood, but
this how introverts have been portrayed over the years, in
movies or television. And sure introverts may look like they’re
reserved, but that it just one very small part of their
personality. All you need is a little bit of patience. They
will open up to you and that is when you’ll know how crazy in
the head these introverts are!
Introverts are misunderstood on so many levels, time to
clear them out.
Introverts are rude: Introverts take time to
get comfortable. Expecting them to keep talking all the while
in the first time itself will get you disappointed. They’ll
utter two-three words and that’s it. That is why introverts
come across as arrogant. They’ll gradually open up to you, and
then you’ll realize that your introverted friend is such a
Introverts are shy: Only with people they have
a formal relationship with! And that too just in the initial
stages. It is very awkward for them to even ask for a “sukha
puri” and that is when they put their extrovert best friend
They have no shame at all when they are around their best of
friends. Only people with introverted best friends know how
wild they are!
Introverts don’t talk much : They talk often,
but not to every random person, the list is selective. A short
conversation is not something they really like. Hence, getting
into small chats with people doesn’t really happen. Introverts
are deep people. Get them to talk about something interesting,
they’ll go on for 3 days straight, and you’ll be the one
Introverts are not outgoing: Sure they are,
they are so badly misunderstood! They can party, shop, trek, go
for movies and do everything that you call fun. The difference
between an extrovert and introvert is that they start feeling
homesick just 3 hours after having fun, they love their small
little cozy homes. The time they spend outside is surely less
than extroverts, but they do like going out.
Introverts are not a people’s person: They
love people. They value every person important to them. They
can even beat up a person to death who hurts their people and
can sob more than their best friend who just broke up. If you
have an introvert person as a friend, congrats, you have a
loyal friend for a lifetime!
Introverts like to be alone: Introverts
totally love wasting their time on themselves. But that is not
something they do all the time. They feel lonely if they
haven’t spoken to their favorite person for a long time and
frequent meet ups are mandatory.
Introverts don’t know how to chill: Their idea
of chilling different. You tell an introvert to chill and
they’ll go and sleep. Or comfortable pajamas, laptop or a book
and a strong coffee is more than enough to get them excited.
Introverts are always detached: Introverts are
thinkers. They are always solving puzzles in their head which
may sound stupid! Reacting to everything that is going on
around becomes exhausting. We are not always aloof. Get us some
great gossip and they’ll be sitting at your feet!
Introverts without alcohol are boring:
Rubbish! Getting tipsy brings out a different side of a person,
and sure little bit of alcohol is always fun. But they can be
fun without that too! Introverts have an amazing sense of
humor, plan a sleepover and they will tell you how much fun
they have had! If you know what I mean!
Introverts suck at relationships: Damn no!
Introverts are mysterious people! And mysterious is always
charming. People who are in a relationship with introverts are
taken by surprise when they realize that they can be great
partners. And are almost happily shocked when they put their
intimacy skills on display. Enough said!
Introverts are incredibly awesome, their mysterious nature
makes them very attractive, they are great listeners and can
always make you feel special. So, if you’re going through a
rough phase in life, you know which friend can lift your mood!
They do a lot of thinking, so they are really good with
advises. So you can never really be stuck in a situation for
long. Point is, if you have an introverted friend, rejoice!
