Reblog this if it applies to you.
I am an introvert. That means that when I’m feeling down, chances are that I won’t actually go to you for help. In fact, I won’t go to anyone for help. You’ll have to actually check on me. I don’t feel that I should burden others with my problems but if you come to me, I might just trust you enough to let you help.
I am reblogging this because, as an introvert, I want to expand upon the points of this that are not true for me. The first part is completely true in my case. I will not go to anyone for help, most likely. I do not want to burden anyone when I am feeling low about something that I have worked out and I definitely don’t trust enough people for opening up to be something that I do. But, often times, I am completely incapable of even comprehending what’s wrong with me, and the chances of me opening up to someone about something I haven’t even worked out myself yet are even slimmer. And once I have worked out what the issue is, I tend to resolve it internally, as conferring with other people really doesn’t help me. For me, part of being an introvert is being more productive and functional independently than with the aid of others.
Extrovert vs. Introvert
There is this common misconception about the natural behaviour of extroverts and introverts; extroverts are often times characterized as being lively and talkative, while introverts are naturally quiet and withdrawn.
This isn’t true. It’s correct that when you meet someone shy and quiet they will more likely be and introvert than an extrovert; however, this doesn’t mean that introverts are naturally shy, or that shy people always have to be introverts. On the contrary, introverts can be very talkative and discuss topics that intrest them for hours on end.
The actual definition of an Introvert is someone who draws energy from being alone with their thoughts, while Extroverts draw their energy from being with others.
Introverts are people can who draw energy from being alone with their thoughts. They enjoy, and sometimes even need, a deep conversation with people they trust; they often don’t like small talk, or rather often don’t see the point in it. But after a while they will feel the need to be alone again, to recharge and sort out things on their own.
Extroverts on the other hand, are people who draw their energy from being with others. They can enjoy being alone with their ideas and dreams just as an introverts can enjoy being around people, yet after a while they will feel the need to interact with others to fill up their energy.
I love this and will always reblog it.
This is how I feel about my relationship with people in general. I can deal with socializing and hanging out, yada yada, but I like having alone time to recharge.
