Some people are just cranky or misanthropic, I get that. Some introverts are fed up with being told to change, with struggling to get their say, with being called party poopers or wet blankets or whatever. You can’t blame them, can you? You see them eat alone, always silent in a gathering. Sometimes they avoid your eyes. They’re not snobs and they’re definitely not lonely. They’re extraordinary beings. They are introverts. In today’s post, I would like to address some of the misconceptions about introverts. Here we go with the top five dumb myths about introverts.
1. Introverts are shy
This really depends on who we are with, and what situation we are in. There are shy introverts and shy extroverts, though, arguably, an introvert may feel more vulnerable in a crowd of people whom they do not know. Regardless, we are not always shy in expressing our own opinions, especially if it is in regards to issues we care about.
