It is highly probable that you or someone close to you is an introvert.

Introverts, from the very childhood are labeled as ‘Shy’. They are often seen as people lacking social skills. Some even call them as ‘extremely self involved people’. But this is far from the truth.

Here we put 5 frequently misunderstood characteristics of introverts:

1. Introverts Are Not Necessarily Shy:

Seeing introverts as simply ‘shy people’ will be a gross mistake. Often, due to their tendency of speaking less in public, they are labeled as SHY. But actually, they are people who enjoy being alone. On the contrary, when they are surrounded by many people, their energy gets drained.

2. Introverts Are Definitely Not Snobs:

Introverts do not talk to strangers not because they think themselves as superiors, but because it is very difficult for them to talk to a stranger. They get very uncomfortable in situations like these. So they aren’t snobs at all.

3. Introverts Do Love To Be Social:

This might sound a little strange to you but this is actually true. Introverts can be very loud and fun in a family party. They’ll amuse and entertain you, but as soon as a stranger comes near them, they’ll hide back in their shell slowly.

4. Introverts Do Become Envious of People Who Can Easily Socialize:

Though it is almost impossible for introverts to meet a stranger comfortably, but majority of them envy the people who are outgoing and can get along with random people easily. In their hearts they also want to be very comfortable with the strangers, thus they cater great respect for people who can socialize.

5. Introverts Are Generally Very Introspective:

Most of the introverts like to sit quietly and think about themselves. They analyze each and every situation, which often results in over thinking. Thus, they are not able to even relax properly.
