1. You feel under-appreciated
You usually don’t talk much. Sometimes you don’t know what to say, other times you don’t have anything to say, and still other times you just don’t have the energy to talk. Regardless, you still wish people would take more time to get to know you, or you wish you had more energy to talk to them.
2. You enter a group and become invisible 5 minutes into the conversation
When meeting a group of new people, you try your best to give a good first impression and appear sociable. Eventually, however, you lose people’s attention because small talk isn’t your strong suit and you can’t think of anything good to say. As you continue to feel invisible, you beat yourself up or feel you’re uninteresting or lack charisma.
3. You feel lonelier at social events than you do when you’re by yourself
You could be standing in a room full of people but you still feel isolated and out of place. You crave deep conversations, but all you get is small talk. You consider yourself lucky if you find someone to talk to in the corner of the room.
4. You hate phone calls
You hate receiving phone calls and you absolutely dread making them. You frequently ignore a ringing phone and call the person back later or wait for them to call you back later on. You relax if you see that the caller is someone you’re close to, because it’s less draining to talk to someone you know well.
5. You secretly wish you were an extrovert
You secretly wish you were an extrovert
On many occasions, you envy the energy and social prowess that your extroverted friends have. You wish that you could share more of yourself with other people. However, group situations are so draining that you rarely have the energy to talk to someone for long enough to get their attention.
6. Need to know who will be at an event so you can decide whether to go or not!
We decide whether to go somewhere not based on the activity, but based on who will be attending. We prefer a quiet activity, of course, but as long as we love the people around us, we can handle doing something out of our comfort zone for one night.
7. GETTING ASKED THE QUESTION: “WHY ARE YOU SO QUIET??
This tops the list of frustrations for almost any introvert out there.When you hear, "Are you OK?" or "Why are you so quiet?" for the umpteenth time. We don’t bother you for being too loud, so don’t ask us why we’re so quiet. People have different personalities and dispositions, so we just ask that yourespect us, and we will respect you. We actually enjoy talking, but not about petty things like gossip or shopping. We enjoy deep conversations, so if you really want to hear us talk, ask us about something that will make us think.
8. Being put on the spot and people expecting a response immediately
Introverts don’t hate talking in front of others necessarily (unless they’re also shy), but they need a little time to prepare. If you can, avoid putting them on the spot without at least a little warning.
9. People mistaking you for a SHY, ANTISOCIAL, UNFRIENDLY PERSON.
Not all introverts are shy, and not all shy people are introverts. It’s about time we put those stereotypes and misconstrued ideas to rest – most introverts DO enjoy talking to others, but at the right place, time, and about the right subjects.
10. Introverts are like cats
When you're really excited to go out, but those good feelings don't last long enough.Just like cats,for a minute they are like,
"Ghosh i am so excited I AM GOING OUT!"
2 minutes later.....,
"I want to come back in :("
11. Anywhere you have no privacy.
Spending the weekend with your in-laws in their tiny cabin. Crashing on someone’s couch without a room of your own to escape to. Working in an open office where there are literally no walls between you and small talk. Private by nature, introverts function best when they have a space to call their own.
12. Oh so this was Surprise?okay.
Introverts’ brains aren’t as strongly rewarded for gambling or taking risks as extroverts’ brains are. The brain’s reward and pleasure system is activated by dopamine neurotransmitters. Scientists found that extroverts’ brains responded with more pleasure to positive gambling results. In other words, introverts feel less excitement from surprise or risk.
13. You feel like everything you say must be invaluable and perfect
You don’t raise your hand in class or speak up at work because you think that everything you say must be profound and flawless. You carefully filter your words and feel enormous pressure to say the right things.
