Are You An Introvert Like Me, And How To Best Live Your Life.

 Are you an introvert like me..

"Introverts — people with quieter and more reflective personalities — who typically thrive within the inner workings of their own minds, and love to be alone". And those kind of people do not fit in well with Society or their Peers. So of course as you can imagine, Society will never give you a moment's peace until you fall in line with what they expect you to be, which is just like them. And if you don't, then they will label you, they will diagnose you, they will seek to treat you to become like them, and if that doesn't work then they will begin to persecute you. All the while proclaiming through their hypocrisy that the world is a richly diverse place and everyone is special and different. Case And Point:  in 2010, the American Psychiatric Association even considered classifying "introverted personality" as a disorder by listing it in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual (DSM-5), a manual used to diagnose mental illness.


 The life of introverts...

So do you see my friend? For us Introverts who like to spend time alone and live in our own heads, but love to interact with others occasionally, the world can easily misunderstand us. And then they will say that you are weird, that you are not like the easily lovable Extroverts, who just can't keep their mouth shut, who love to be the life of the party, who have to start conversations just for the sake of talking, who get a big rush of Dopamine just being part of a crowd, and who don't mind being hypocrites with all people whom they deal with. But as for you Introvert, you love to think, you love to put things together in your mind, you love to study people and watch their behavior, you love to write and teach others, you love to spend time alone and enjoy all kind of things. But sometime you don't mind talking with others, you don't mind helping others, you don't mind giving of yourself and you certainly want to make the world a better place by having all people to be fair, just, truthful and loving toward one another.


 How to piss off an introvert...

So why can't the world leave you alone, why can't your friends and family just be there for you just in case? Instead of always accusing you of something being wrong with you? And why must they always force you to talk constantly, why drag you out of your home, why force you be around them 24 hours a day? And just because they are very dependent on others and must be going out and do something every second of the day, they seem to think that you, as an Introvert, have the same needs and wants as they do. But funny thing is, you don't judge them as Extroverts, you don't label them, you don't force your will on them and you certainly don't persecute them. And so this is why today I have written this article for you, just so you can understand yourself better, and just so you can share this information with them, and that way you and them can finally live in harmony and respect each other's different wants and needs in this life. James Dazouloute, An Introvert Like You.

10 Myths/Facts About Introverts

Myth #1 – Introverts don’t like to talk.
This is not true. Introverts just don’t talk unless they have something to say. They hate small talk. Get an introvert talking about something they are interested in, and they won’t shut up for days.

Myth #2 – Introverts are shy.
Shyness has nothing to do with being an Introvert. Introverts are not necessarily afraid of people. What they need is a reason to interact. They don’t interact for the sake of interacting. If you want to talk to an Introvert, just start talking. Don’t worry about being polite.

Myth #3 – Introverts are rude.
Introverts often don’t see a reason for beating around the bush with social pleasantries. They want everyone to just be real and honest. Unfortunately, this is not acceptable in most settings, so Introverts can feel a lot of pressure to fit in, which they find exhausting.

Myth #4 – Introverts don’t like people.
On the contrary, Introverts intensely value the few friends they have. They can count their close friends on one hand. If you are lucky enough for an introvert to consider you a friend, you probably have a loyal ally for life. Once you have earned their respect as being a person of substance, you’re in.

Myth #5 – Introverts don’t like to go out in public.
Nonsense. Introverts just don’t like to go out in public FOR AS LONG. They also like to avoid the complications that are involved in public activities. They take in data and experiences very quickly, and as a result, don’t need to be there for long to “get it.” They’re ready to go home, recharge, and process it all. In fact, recharging is absolutely crucial for Introverts.


 How to care for an introvert...

Myth #6 – Introverts always want to be alone.
Introverts are perfectly comfortable with their own thoughts. They think a lot. They daydream. They like to have problems to work on, puzzles to solve. But they can also get incredibly lonely if they don’t have anyone to share their discoveries with. They crave an authentic and sincere connection with ONE PERSON at a time.

Myth #7 – Introverts are weird.
Introverts are often individualists. They don’t follow the crowd. They’d prefer to be valued for their novel ways of living. They think for themselves and because of that, they often challenge the norm. They don’t make most decisions based on what is popular or trendy.

Myth #8 – Introverts are aloof nerds.
Introverts are people who primarily look inward, paying close attention to their thoughts and emotions. It’s not that they are incapable of paying attention to what is going on around them, it’s just that their inner world is much more stimulating and rewarding to them.

Myth #9 – Introverts don’t know how to relax and have fun.
Introverts typically relax at home or in nature, not in busy public places. Introverts are not thrill seekers and adrenaline junkies. If there is too much talking and noise going on, they shut down. Their brains are too sensitive to the neurotransmitter called Dopamine. Introverts and Extroverts have different dominant neuro-pathways. Just look it up.

Myth #10 – Introverts can fix themselves and become Extroverts.
Introverts cannot “fix themselves” and deserve respect for their natural temperament and contributions to the human race. In fact, one study (Silverman, 1986) showed that the percentage of Introverts increases with IQ.
