People today are full of Idiosyncrasies. Some have normal habits like drinking coffee or tea, whereas some have 'less normal' habits like drinking Fanta with coffee.
So, how do we characterize people as Introverts and Extroverts? Realistically, Who are Introverts and Extroverts?
I'm sure everyone has that one friend - The one who prefers to read while others play, one who prefers silence to mindless babble or one who shies away from the attention.
What we don't see, however, is that they may be the people who want to seize the world.
Introverts are not merely anti-social. They are the most timid, emotive and loyal friends you could possibly make. They have all the skills and knowledge required to lead, but they remain in the background, calmly observing a situation. Though introverts strive the hardest, they are usually not awarded with the appreciation they deserve. Even so, they silently march on.
A famous quote goes
"People who remain quiet hide a wealth of feelings under their harsh exterior."
This is especially true of introverts who strive to contain their turbulent emotions. Being constantly looked down upon and being pushed aside is never easy for anyone. But Introverts have the capacity to hold up surprisingly well. After all, they will be the first to sympathize if a tragedy befalls or congratulate if luck raises their head and they will be the ones to face problems head on. Introverts may be timid and shy or they may have a low self esteem. But this is because they usually over think their actions or they are not able to fully express what they want to say. In such cases, it is always better to treat them with the deference and respect that is needed for them to gain confidence in themselves and their actions.
Many of the greatest minds of the world started as introverts. Even if they do not seem so vivid as the extroverts, their slow and steady pace will definitely take them to great heights and their cautious attitude will help them overcome their problems with ease.
So, if you are an introvert like me, Never fear. Your cautiousness and tenacity will never fail you. If you are suffering through some emotional upheaval, always remember that it is just a passing phase. Finally, to say the least; stay true to yourself and your ideals because they will become your guidepost in the turbulent future. Remember,
The loneliest people are the kindest.
The saddest people smile the brightest.
The most damaged people are the wisest.
