Introverts! Stay the same and don’t strive to become an extrovert. Embrace your uniqueness and be yourself.
It’s a common belief that extroverts are the people who love to socialize while introverts aren’t good at socializing with others — which is not the case. The principal difference between the two is that, extroverts are more inclined towards interacting with people and they feel happy while doing so, on the contrary introverts usually do not require energy and inspiration from anyone; rather, they find it within themselves more often than not.
Nearly one-third of us are introverts? Introverts get energized by having alone time, while extroverts get motivated from social settings. It doesn’t mean that introverts can’t be successful.
Here are 9 habits of successful introverts that may help give you the confidence you need to be yourself.
1- Well Thought Communication
Introverts are more cautious about what they speak, they don’t take their words for granted, they value what they say, they deliberate before making any decision or commitment, they make every effort to understand how things work in their own context, before making any rash decisions, so whenever it comes to plan , their plans are well-informed and thought out.
Unlike extroverts, introverts people like their own company, they like to spend time with themselves, this is the key to be creative, spending some time alone uplifts spiritual well being, sparking creative ideas and triggers innovative thoughts.
Contemplation is the mother of planning, all those workable plans don’t just pop out, they need thoughtful processing along with a considerable amount of time, introverts are very good at contemplation, their level of observation is remarkably higher and they tend to view things from different perspective.
Introverts don’t give up easily. They practice trying to get their thoughts and voices heard over the cacophony created by extroverts. Introverts are naturally good at ‘persisting’ and continued perseverance.
5- Silent but Strong
Being gregarious or ‘shouting the loudest’ are not the attributes of introverts, introverts are silent and they know their strengths quite well, they are less expressive but have a strong opinion of their own, silently they perceive the world with different angle.
Albeit, introverts need a little bit of effort to get their talents and inner core to be seen and appreciated by the outer world, but they are generally quite respectful of the different working styles and preferences of others.
Introverts possess great ability to understand and develop an environment of mutual feelings and attention, they are fantastic active listeners. They don’t interrupt, but listen carefully to extract meaning.
8- Independent & Self Reliant
Introverts love independence, they are self reliant leaders, who like to work with freedom, without having limitations and boundaries. This doesn’t mean that they are not good in managing teams. They are effective leaders who make people follow them while working on their own terms.
They do not need any external inspiration as they are self-inspired to reach their goals. They may not express themselves easily but when they do, it becomes the reason of their success.
Because introverts aren’t always outwardly expressive about their feelings, they are very well composed and more likely to evaluate these feelings alone, giving themselves time to sort out everything privately before addressing the issue publicly.
Calm and collected introverts have control over their emotions as they do not express themselves easily. They know how to hone their emotions and the right way to express them.
