Most people misunderstood introverts. Introverts don’t hate people. They aren’t socially awkward or shy. They just need more time alone to recharge their energy. Furthermore, like what one of the graphs below shows, introverts articulate their thoughts clearer in writing than when speaking. When they aren’t talking, they are just listening or perhaps daydreaming. Seldom are they actually in a bad mood.
So next time you meet an introvert, don’t ask them, “Are you okay?”, “Why are you so quiet?” or “Do you hate people or something?”. Because that may really get them in a bad mood!
