We all have our strengths and weaknesses, and must learn to identify them for what they are in order to grow as individuals. If we excelled in maths but had problems in biology, then finding a study partner who was the opposite would be helpful.
The same applies for general life problems (and solutions). Introverts are gifted in many areas, and a lot of the things they are great at doing might be easily disregarded by some. But these things are important- for human connection, understanding, and relation.
As much as introverts can teach us, they also learn a thing or two from extroverts as well. It’s an equal exchange of gifts that both should appreciate.
Here Are 7 Things Introverts Are The Absolute Best At:
When you connect with an introvert, you really connect. They care about what you say, so they do more than just hear you- they listen and ask questions. They speak less and allow you to complete your thoughts as to gain understanding. Because of this, introverts are sure to give you the best advice you can get.
All too often, we ignore how we truly feel and disregard our own emotions. This can cause enormous stress and contribute to unhealthy lifestyles. An introvert doesn’t worry about such things, however. They know that being in social situations will drain them, so they decline the offers to go out. They won’t apologize for how they feel, but they will let you know the decision is based on their personal feelings. With an introvert, you never have to guess what’s going on because they let you know.
A typical trait of an introvert is their quietness. It’s partly because they take the time to truly consider their words before saying them. As emotionally sensitive people, they do their best to make sure they do not unintentionally hurt someone’s feelings. Remember, they aren’t being lazy or disinterested, they just need a little more time to process their thoughts so they say what they intend to say.
Because introverts spend so much time with their own thoughts, they have learned to perfect their understanding of others. This means they can pick up on how you are feeling, without you or them saying a word.
If you’re an introvert, then you know that sometimes, you need time to recharge. It may take a day, or even three, but you know what your body needs. In order to be the best version of ourselves we can be, we need to practice self-love and self-care. This, in turn, helps others as well. Showing others how to survive in this hectic world is something introverts don’t realize they are doing, but they do it well.
Small talk? Forget about it. Introverts can fake it for a while, but it’s not their cup of tea. They long for the deeper connections- the underlying meaning of things. Which celebrity was recently married isn’t going to spark their interest as much as discussing the works of a historical artist. If you are looking for someone to have a real conversation with, look no further than your friendly introvert.
There is something to just being. Not worrying or thinking about what needs to be done, but simply basking in the glory of nature. Introverts know that spending time alone, surrounded by Mother Nature, is the ultimate healer. Stressed out? Overworked? Mentally and emotionally exhausted? Spend some time away from the chaos of the world and see what peaceful solitude can do for you.
