I’m a introvert person. I’m the type of person who loves to just be alone and explore and be alone. I don’t like to engage with people unless I’m at a party or something. I prefer to be by myself for a good long time.
My wife and I have an interesting relationship. We dont talk to each other until we are ready to do so. We talk on the phone a lot and email a lot. We have a lot more communication than I think most people would expect.
Im going to stop here to make it clear that I hate being called an introvert. Because I know that’s not what this is about. I’m not saying that everyone is an introvert, but I believe that there are many introverts out there. And although the title is obviously meant to be somewhat derogatory, the word introvert is actually used a lot in social and intellectual circles.
Introversion is generally defined as an emotional response to a situation or activity that is characterized by shyness, detachment, or lack of self-reflection. For me this means I don’t always find myself talking to people. I’m not sure what that does for me, other than it makes me feel more comfortable talking to people. My job sometimes requires me to go into a situation with a group of people and talk to them.
I think that sometimes when I am in a situation that requires me to go into a topic that is going to terrify and scare me, I can be introverted by nature. I think that introversion is a result of fear. I don’t know what that is, but I know that it is not the best thing for me. It also means that I can only talk to people about things I know I can trust them to know.
Introversion isn’t the only aspect of introversion that can be beneficial to our relationships. Intuition is another one, and if something (say, a secret) is really, really important to me then I can have the courage to do something about it. This might not always be the best thing for me, but I like to be cautious so that if I am unable to do something, I can at least know that I tried and it didn’t work.
Many introverts might be afraid that they cannot be confident enough to be able to do so, but the truth is that most introverts are comfortable enough with their beliefs and beliefs about themselves to be willing to give up some of the control to others if need be. In fact, the introvert in us all is the most powerful and the strongest person on the planet. Its because our introversion makes us so confident in our beliefs that we are able to trust those beliefs with our lives.
The most prominent introvert is probably William Strunk. He is famous for saying, “To be an introvert is to be sure of one thing: that you know it inside out.” It’s why he is considered to be “one of the greatest writers of the English language.” He is also someone who is very comfortable with his introverted identity.
We all know people whose personalities are so self-conscious that it makes them appear to be completely miserable. Its true this is a common problem for introverts, but there is something to be said for those who are so comfortable with their introvert identity that they would rather hide it. In any case, this is another way in which introverts can be powerful.
Introverts are powerful because they can hide their true selves from the world. Their bodies are more easily accessible to the world around them, so it is easy for them to hide their true selves. I am definitely one of these introverts.
