A few MINDful insights about an introverts perspective.
We are observant.
We often see things others often miss or don’t see, about everything, but mostly about people's character. We are constantly taking in information in our quiet state and using it as catalyst for either, a creative expression, or to take mental notes about a situation, or someone. When you are with an introvert, nothing is lost. It often seems like the introverted person percieves what the other wants, even when the others haven’t spelt it out, which is intuitive.
We are mindful of what we say.
Nothing makes you look stupid and unattractive faster than saying inappropriate things because you rushed to speak and did not take time to consider your words (which is the reason behind a lot of awkward encounters with the introverts you know. We feel pressured quite easily, to either try to keep conversation going, or that silence is making everyone else hugely uncomfortable and we need to say something.)
Introverts don’t usually speak out of turn. In fact, we try not to speak at all unless we have something important to say. Although when we do speak, there is most likely a lot of thought or research behind it.
We are creative, out-of-the box thinkers.
Introverts have no fear of being alone and (Theres a difference between lonely and alone) actually cherish privacy and freedom from interruption. In the state of solitude, introverts get in touch with their inner monologue, ask the right questions and flex their creative muscles. That natural tendency to embrace solitude, focus deeply on a subject, think and act creatively makes introverts unique people.
We are studious and smart. (About some things)
Introverts are naturally drawn to reading and study. We enjoy learning and figuring out new things for ourselves, and while we might be dubbed book worms, we like to socialize on occasion. Most people enjoy being around studious people, however our lack of smalltalk abilities tends to limit our interactions with others very well.
