If you have been reading my blog then you must be knowing that I’m an introvert. I prefer staying quiet most of the time & love to spend time with myself.

If you are also an introvert then you must be getting many questions from people around you about your nature. Like , Why are you so quiet ? Why are you sad? Why do you stay alone?

These are most common questions introverts gets asked by people around them. Also people even make conclusions about introverts without even knowing the reality.

Let’s look at Top 5 myths about introverts & reality.

Everyone cannot be what you want them to be. So don’t expect someone to change according to your convenience. Don’t force anyone to be what you want them to be.

Start accepting & appreciating each person for who they are.

  1. I totally relate to this post! Especially Myth #2. I deal with patients and co-workers all morning. So, when it’s time for my lunch break, I like to sit by myself so I can just zen out for a little before going back to work.

  2. The one thing that annoys me the most is having to explain to people why I am like this. Why I donโ€™t talk much, or interact with everyoneโ€ฆ. It requires too much energyโ€ฆ But great post.

    1. Yes , it can be annoying when people keep asking questions instead of understanding.
      But you have let it be. Eventually they will start understanding you ๐Ÿ˜Š
      And as sohanpreet said, you don’t need to explain anybody ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿ˜‰

  3. Well said Sumeet.๐Ÿ˜Š
    It is easy for people to say that he/she doesnโ€™t talk much or are anti-social.๐Ÿ˜
    But the truth is that introverts need their own time to organise their own thoughts and they enjoy being with themselves
    And Yes the world will be nice if we accept people as they are.

    1. Exactly! Introverts need their own time to get comfortable with others.
      And we all need to accept people for who they are & not force anyone to change.
      Thank you for reading ๐Ÿ˜Šโค๏ธ

  4. #1 is the worst kind of thing a person could ever say about another human. Introverts are normal happy people who enjoy life as any other human. They are not sad but only becomes sad when the circumstance arises. Everybody gets sad at one point or the other and that doesnโ€™t make you an introvert, does it?
    #3) What do you think when you hear somebody saying that introverts hate people? Doesnโ€™t it sound crazy? I am an introvert and I must say Iโ€™m one of the most lovely people you can have around you. Additionally, as an introvert, I like to make choices and be choosy as to where I want to go. That does not mean that I or introverts donโ€™t like to go out.
    Myths busted!

    1. You have explained the realities of both of the big myths. Thank you so much for writing this comment ,agree with each & every word from you
      Have a great day/night ahead๐Ÿ˜Š

  5. Haha, so the myth is finally busted! The fourth one was so on point. Introverts aren’t shy, they’re picky. ๐Ÿ˜› I could relate on a deeper level. Very interesting post, Sumeet. Proud to be an Introvert! ๐ŸŒธ

  6. ๐Ÿ‘ True. I used to be introvert (still am a bit) and I love how you give the insight and the message at the end. Not everyone in the world is the same. In fact one of my best friends and my husband is an extrovert, which is probably why we got along. Haha ๐Ÿ˜€

  7. Hah! I totally relate to this post.
    itโ€™s like you said, people think of as lonely sad people, but we arenโ€™t. Most people that I know consider me as introvert, sad- lonely- but then the ones that are close to me, know the real truth ๐Ÿ˜‰

  8. Amazing post. I could relate because I always consider myself to be an introvert and I really like spending time alone but going out once in a while either alone or with my close friends or family does help and I like it. Everyone really believes in all the myths you talked about and the reality situation is just the same. โ˜บ๏ธ Thank you for this post. I feel good somehow.
