For the majority of us, the ‘lifestyle’ is more of a ‘me’s’ than a ‘we’s’, and can be defined as anything our ‘selves’ do, or the things that we do. As an example, I am an introvert, but I have always been one.
So why is it so important for introverts to be introverted? Because this lifestyle can be so different from the rest of society, that it can be as lonely as it is social.
There are two main reasons why introverts are introverted. The first is that, for introverted people, being introverted is an identity, not a personality. We are all introverted, and are all introverts. If you’re an extrovert, you’re definitely not an introvert. But what if you’re an introvert, but just pretend that you are an extrovert? Well, it’s time for that to change.
Introverts often need to make themselves feel better about themselves by creating a persona that’s a bit less socially awkward than they are. An introvert can be more socially awkward than an extrovert, but its better than being an extrovert, because the extrovert persona is so much more comfortable.
Introverts can also learn to be more comfortable by changing the way that they interact with others. Introverts and Extroverts are often more comfortable with small talk and group interaction, while extroverts need to interact with larger groups. But, in fact, introverts are more comfortable interacting with people from a distance.
The introvert’s comfort zone is basically a small circle of people. Outside of that circle, it is difficult to be comfortable in a social situation. But, as long as you stay away from the extrovert lifestyle, you can interact with a wide variety of people in a social setting.
The fact is that most introverts are shy and easily disempowered. But, in fact, they don’t always seem to feel comfortable with a lot of the people in their circle. For example, they are sometimes surprised when a group of introverts starts arguing about what they think of the world, or what they think of the company they work for, or what they think of their house, or how they live in their own little town without the help of anyone in the group.
Introverts often feel that if they can only fit a small group of people in, they will feel more comfortable. But introverts can also have a hard time fitting in with friends or other introverts.
Introverts and extroverts are often at odds. I’m not saying introverts and extroverts don’t have a lot in common. But if you can’t fit in with a group, then you’ll probably have a hard time fitting in with others.
