There are many things people would never guess about introverted people. Even an introvert may not know others do the same things until they read about them. Here are some widely unknown facts about introverts.
15 FACTS ABOUT INTROVERTS MOST PEOPLE DON’T KNOW
1. THEY MAKE THEMSELVES LAUGH
They prefer their own company at times. They like their ideas, they love daydreaming, creating, reading, watching a movie, relaxing, and they genuinely make themselves laugh at times. They will make you laugh too, but only if they feel comfortable enough to share their humor with you. Many comedians are introverted, which explains a lot about why they notice things others rarely notice.
Introverts need to be alone to recharge. People tend to think that introverts are socially awkward, shy and boring people. Nothing could be further from the truth. They value genuine relationships and will have deep conversations at length. They’re not shy, but they want to avoid meaningless interactions. This is why they dislike having a ton of friends merely for the sake of having friends. They need to be alone because it’s draining to be around numerous people and put on a front.
3. THEY LIKE PEOPLE AND THEY DON’T
They love the good things in people, getting to know the real them and feel comfortable being around them when nothing is said. They like getting to know the real side of them. What they don’t like are fake personalities, keeping up with gossip, talking about the weather or anything else that is not conducive to creating a better tomorrow. This double-edged sword creates a world of always wondering which category people fall in. An introvert ends up wondering, “Should I get to know you or should I not?” An introvert knows quickly who they want to be a friend and who they don’t.
Since an introvert thinks deeply and cares about genuine relationships, an introvert loves deeply. Most often, an introvert loves their partner more than their partner loves them. It is said that an introvert is usually paired with an extrovert, which explains why an introvert would love their partner more. They think about their partner many times throughout the day, they want to know them better and understand why they are the way they are and think of ways to do little things for them.
5. LOYALTY IS A BIG DEAL TO THEM
If an introvert takes time to know you, you mean a lot to them. Friends aren’t a dime a dozen for them, which means they invest a lot of time, love, kindness and more in you. They want you to stick around and be a true friend, which means you shouldn’t blow them off, trivialize their friendship or otherwise betray them. This means that if you turn against an introvert, it will cut them deeply. They choose their friends wisely. If you have a friend who’s an introvert, they love and respect you tremendously.
They don’t like unexpected anything, but they especially don’t like unexpected visitors. They have their time mapped out. They know what they’re doing for the day. They don’t like distractions. They have put a lot of thought into how they want their day to go. If you unexpectedly visit, you throw it all off. They might not have the energy or be ready for someone to visit either. Avoid unexpected visits at all costs.
An introvert can have fun without jumping all over the place. In fact, an introvert is rarely bored because they’re deep in thought most of the time. Their thoughts keep them from boredom. They’re creative types that get energized and focused on solo activities. Rest assured, they’re not bored. They can be absolutely thrilled while sitting still, and you wouldn’t know the difference.
Kids come along with their own personalities, which means that they can be extroverted. It’s fun to watch extroverts in action and witness how people interact, but an introvert still needs alone time from their kids to recharge. Being introverted makes one a great parent: They’re able to answer the why’s of life’s mysteries, they are patient, love their kids tremendously and are fun to be around. Just give them some alone time, and they’re good.
Introverts don’t like to be alone all the time. Every once in awhile, they like to go out and see new sights. They like to hang out and have coffee, but they’re not into superficial friendships and small talk. After they’ve been out for a while, they need alone time again. After a few days of being a hermit, they’re ready to get out again.
