The Quiet Ones | 4 Facts About What It Means To Be An Introvert | Orlando Therapist

“You’re so shy!” “Why don’t you talk?” “Come to the party, it’ll be fun!”

These are just a few phrases you might be familiar with if you’re an introvert. Being an introvert doesn’t mean being shy or antisocial. Being introverted has a lot to do with where you get your energy, and how you process things. Here are a few extrovert facts.

  1. Introverts get their energy from alone time.  Introverts recharge by being alone. Being around others can be draining, so after a long day, they look forward to solitude.
  1. They process things internally.  Introverts are very in tune with their feelings and thoughts. They dwell in the internal world. When they need to make a decision or work through something, what they need is to be alone and think.
  1. Introverts are stimulated from the inside.  For the introvert, it is more appealing to sit and think than to hang out or go to a party. Stimuli-saturated environments can be overwhelming for introverts, even causing anxiety.
  1. Focused and invested.  Introverts tend to work on a smaller, but deeper, level. They may know a lot about a few subjects. They may only have a small circle of friends, but the relationships they develop are very deep and meaningful.
