"[Introverts] prefer to devote their social energies to close friends, colleagues, and family. They listen more than they talk, think before they speak, and often feel as if they express themselves better in writing than in conversation. They tend to dislike conflict. Many have a horror of small talk, but enjoy deep discussions."― Susan Cain, Quiet
Maybe you've always known, and perhaps you've just taken a personality test to confirm it, but there's nothing wrong with being an introvert. We're a strange bunch, that's for sure, but we provide the world with a necessary balance.
Being introverts doesn't necessarily mean we're shy. It just means you interact with others when there's an actual reason to. We have our own way of communicating and while it isn't the most conventional, we excel in other things. We're usually great listeners, highly observant, and are very in tune with our own thoughts.
