All Things About Introverts: The Seemingly Mysterious Personality That Often Gets Misunderstood!

All Things About Introverts: The Seemingly Mysterious Personality That Often Gets Misunderstood!

A Sneak Peek To “What is an introvert?

Introverts – shy and withdrawn, mysterious people that don’t particularly need human interaction, or do they? With all of the buzz about introverts, extroverts and ambiverts going on lately, are we sure we are not jumping to conclusions regarding someone’s personality, and more importantly, how much of the information we have is accurate and not leading to generalizing and misconceptions?

There’s no doubt that extroverts are easy to spot and recognize since they are outgoing and tend to be the center of the attention. On the other hand,introverts tend to keep everything to themselves and don’t talk too much. They tend to be misunderstood as shy, not friendly and socially disconnected.

Finally, ambiverts are perceived as being in the middle with having some of the traits that belong to introverted, and some of the extroverted personality with neither personality being the dominant one.

Carl Jung defined introversion [1] and introverted people as being completely opposite from extroversion and extroverts. He explained that while extroverts are more prone to focusing their energy outwards, introverted people are more focused on their inner life, their subjective thoughts and feelings. With no single definitive definition of introversion being constructed to this point, it is no wonder that we are prone to misconceptions and generalizing.

However, there are a great number of works and research that have managed to analyze the introverted personality type and draw insightful conclusions.

Some Obvious signs of an introvert

Since they are more focused inwardly, introverts enjoy alone time. They thrive and find inspiration from taking the time for their favorite hobby. In those moments best of their ideas are born. As opposed to popular belief, introverts are a beneficial part of the team at work. Even though they would restrain from giving their opinion, and talk only when asked, their ability to think more independently provides valuable different perspective on the matter being discussed.

As far as daily social interactions are concerned, introverted people would most often choose not to get involved in discussions that involve people who show signs of anger. According to the research [2] by psychologist Marta Ponari and collaborators of University College London, this trait of introverts may come as a result of their sensitivity to potentially negative evaluations.

Most often introverts are wrongly judged as people who don’t enjoy social interactions that much. People can sometimes perceive them as rude or uninterested. This misconception comes from the introverts’ tendency to avoid being evaluated by others, so they would always choose not to engage in small talk with strangers, or people they don’t feel truly close with.

It is also a common misconception that introverts aren’t able to withstand leader positions. Actually, introverts have the potential of being great leaders and drawing the most potential out of the team, given that the team is comprised of people who don’t need extra stimulus to perform well. [3]

How Different Types Of Introvert Act Differently? 

With the more thorough research done on introversion, it has become clear that introversion is a far more complex term that has four subcategories. As the psychologist and academic Jonathan Cheek’s research done on 500 adults suggests, there are four types of introverts. Cheek has developed the STAR model [4] in order to explain the four main types of introverts: Social, Thinking, Anxious and Restrained.

1. Social introverts

Social introverts tend to rely more on their alone time for regaining energy. As Cheek explains “The idea that introverts need to alternate sociality and their recharging time, that’s very important in social introversion”.

2. Thinking introverts

People who don’t necessarily shy away from social interactions, but tend to be more introspective and inward oriented are described as thinking introverts.

3. Anxious introverts

Most anxious introverts get described as shy, due to their anxiety when around other people. Anxious introverts tend to feel anxious about how they will be perceived by others and, unlike social introverts, the anxiety doesn’t stop when they are alone. Even though they like to be in social situations, they tend to over-analyze their words and behavior and worry about how they will be interpreted by their peers.

4. Restrained introverts

Inhibited, reserved, or restrained introverts most often think before taking any actions and lack spontaneity. They will most certainly decline a last-minute call to a party, because they like to make plans and sudden events make them uncomfortable.

How are introverts Different From Extroverts?

While Carl Jung was the first to coin the terms “introvert” and “extrovert” and provided theory explaining the main differences between the two types, later research showed the differences in the brain structure of the two types of personalities as well as the different ways in which they react to stimulations and recharge their energy.

Namely, extroverts possess lower levels of arousal, therefore they are always on the lookout for new exciting adventure, while introverts, possessing higher levels of arousal, will look for activities and situations that require lower levels of arousal. [5]

Additionally, extroverts are much more adventurous than introverts due to the difference in their brain structure. The pathway of stimuli of extroverts is shorter than the pathway of introverts, therefore the stimulation process of extroverts is shorter, making them “hungry” for more excitement.

Moreover, introverts would always choose a more relaxing activity for recharging, while extroverts are more likely to choose rewards through excitement. This has to do with the fact that brain of extroverts feeds on dopamine, making them feel pleasant only through challenges and excitement, while introverts’ brain prefers acetylcholine, which creates pleasure through introspection and more self-focused activities.

Extroverts are more aggressive. Does that mean they are more successful?

With introverts getting more positive press, it is refreshing to see the negative stigma surrounding them being erased. For so long, it seems our society has been praising extroverts as go-getters and great leaders and achievers, while introverts were considered awkward and underachieving.

Although at first sight introverts may seem like their performance career-wise may seem poor, their natural abilities to listen, stay focused and calm, provide them with great benefits and make them perfectly able to achieve great success.

If we take a look at the lives and careers of some of the most successful introverts in a number of different areas, we will notice that introversion doesn’t in any way prevent people from being great at what they do. Some of the most famous and successful introverts of our time include

Albert Einstein

Bill Gates [6]

Steven Spielberg [7]

Sir Isaac Newton [8]

Mark Zuckerberg [9]

JK Rowling [10]

Meryl Streep [11]

Introverts: Core strengths and weaknesses

Focused and devoted in every situation, thoughtful to others, insightful and visionary at work, those are some of the common denominators for people with introverted personality type. These are, at the same time, their greatest strengths that make them irreplaceable and beneficial workers, partners, friends, parents…

On the other hand, being introverted usually means being perceived as slightly snobbish, or even rude to others. Also, the more inner focused nature of introverts makes them less likely to get noticed, make more friends or business contacts.

What Are The Ideal Occupations For Different Introverts? 

There are plenty of great positions for introverts to thrive in depending on their natural abilities, education and preferences. As mentioned before, not all introverts are the same, therefore not every person with introverted personality will be happy in the same work position. However, certain occupations have been shown to better suit introverts as they require some of the natural strengths that introverts possess.

According to the four types of introverts, there is a list of potential jobs that would perfectly suit each type’s needs.

How introverts can improve themselves?

Introverts can face many challenges, especially at work and in social situations. Since most introverts won’t speak first at meetings, or sound convincing on job interviews, their careers can suffer as those around them don’t always see their true potential.

There is a way for introverts to how their greatest skills at work while still staying true to themselves. At meetings, they can show their great ability to focus and show their insightful and creative side, and contribute to new ideas.

They can start by asking questions to get the pressure off, and then follow the impulse and speak on the idea. Furthermore, they don’t need to become social butterflies all of a sudden, yet they can use their natural abilities to create meaningful relationships, and use it to make a few genuine connections or allies at work that would help them shine. When it comes to nailing job interviews, introverts can be truly successful if they rely on their natural abilities to prepare well, think before they speak and listen to the person they are talking to.

Since introverts prefer one-on-one conversations to group meetings, they can use their ability to connect in these situations. Moreover, as introverts don’t enjoy talking about themselves, they can show their skills in a manner they are more comfortable with – they can imagine it as sharing instead of bragging.

How To Build Better Relationships With Introvert?

Here are some guidelines on how to understand and respect your introverted friend, partner, or a kid.

If you have an introverted friend

Introverts possess some of the best qualities that make true and genuine friends. In order to keep them around, make sure not to pressure them to hang out in crowded places, as they prefer more intimate atmosphere. Also, give them time to be by themselves to recharge, and time to think before making decisions. Keep surprise adventures at a minimum.

If you are in love with an introvert

Introverts are great partners as they can provide genuine love, support and thoughtfulness to their love interest. Since they don’t act before they think things through, their partners can be assured that they are the only center of their attention. If you are in love with an introvert, make sure to respect their need for private time, don’t interrupt them, and don’t force them to make quick decisions about your lives together.

If you have an introverted kid

If you are raising and introverted child, again, make sure to respect their ways of doing things. Don’t pressure them into making a lot of new friends, having a few, genuine friends is what introverts prefer. Help them cultivate their own skills and talents instead of pressuring them to take part in activities they don’t enjoy. Be aware that they won’t always ask for help, so make sure to be observant and present in order to offer your assistance when needed.

            Can a Dysfunctional Family Become Functional?

            Can a Dysfunctional Family Become Functional?

            A dysfunctional family is more than disagreement or constant arguments. Anything from plain neglect, to abuse and even verbal and physical violence is the everyday experience of those who are part of a dysfunctional family.

            You know how this looks:

            • Parents constantly comparing children.
            • Siblings in conflict because of tolerated bullying.
            • Domestic violence.
            • Adultery…
            • And many others.

            For all the members, this will mean emotional pain and even trauma; which, in case it doesn’t get resolved, will have a detrimental effect on the individual’s personality and development.

            Needless to say, the younger members are the most vulnerable, but that doesn’t mean the parents are out of danger, as most commonly the parents play the roles of abuser-codependent, and in some cases, both parts inflicting pain on one another.

            Most like to think these problems stem from deep-seated issues, and that therefore it’s pretty much impossible to deal with them.

            This is only true for families not willing to do what it takes, for if only a single member is determined and knows how to do it, the whole family can do a lot of progress.

            In this article, I’ll break down for you the basic steps of fixing a dysfunctional family. Although it may seem hopeless, it is possible to turn things around.

            If you have ever felt in this position, or if you know somebody who is, this article is for you.

            How to fix a dysfunctional family

            In a few words the solution for a dysfunctional family lies in dropping the ego, focusing on the solution, switching blame for responsibility and doing the work as a unity, for the good of the whole family.

            And this will accomplish things you once only saw as a dream.

            Dropping the ego? Switching blame for responsibility? Doing the work? What does all this mean?

            It’s simple. In a nutshell, it’s that which will allow you to turn a dysfunctional family into a functional one.

            Let’s take a look at how exactly this can be done. And near the end we will also talk about what you can do in a dysfunctional family with cynical traits.

            Dysfunctional families where not only problems are well-known, but also nobody seems to want a fix or openly decide to perpetuate the harmful behaviors. Such as the case of abuse and physical violence.

            There is also a solution for these, it’s just not what you are expecting…

            Dysfunctional… Or just average?

            Most families are dysfunctional, though at varying degrees of dysfunctionality.

            The milder cases, are just marked by “typical” comically-shrouded bullying or lack of interest in other members’ development or wellbeing.

            You can know a family is dysfunctional if their interactions are anything different than cooperation, solidarity, care and support. But let’s get more specific…

            A dysfunctional family is one in which members directly or indirectly suffer emotional and/or physical harm inflicted by other members of their family. Most commonly, perpetrated by the parents.

            Even harmful actions as “passive” as neglect, which is inflicted by inaction rather than action, signifies a dysfunction within the family.

            Dysfunctional families have conflicts such as:

            • Unrealistic expectations
            • Lack of interest and time spent together
            • Sexism
            • Utilitarianism
            • Lack of empathy
            • Unequal or unfair treatment
            • Disrespect towards boundaries
            • Control Issues
            • Jealousy
            • Verbal and physical abuse
            • Violence and even sexual misconduct or abuse

            The link to productivity

            You may think a dysfunctional family has very little or nothing to do with personal productivity, but you would be wrong in thinking this way…

            If a person is not emotionally well, she will not be able to perform as desired, as the emotional harm that has been inflicted will hinder everyday performance in the way of inability to concentrate, lack of mental clarity and low levels of inspiration, motivation and discipline.

            Having a functional family does exactly the opposite: It creates productive members with no emotional baggage.

            How to turn it around

            When you’re part of a dysfunctional family you know it. You can quickly identify in other members the behaviors and conflicts that create the dysfunction.

            But just in case you’re having trouble telling functional from dysfunctional I will tell you the following:

            One of the easiest ways you can recognize if you are in a dysfunctional family is to survey your won feelings.

            We often overlook this, but have you stopped to ask yourself how you feel?

            Advertising

            As cheesy as it may sound it really sheds a lot of light on the subject.

            What behaviors, actions and attitudes in your family you wish were better?

            Do you think certain behaviors and actions from your family marked you in the past?

            Sadly, we cannot go back to the past to correct it. But we can do a lot in the present…

            Correction is possible

            In order to fix a dysfunctional family, you must start by putting an end to the behaviors and actions that are affecting you.

            Verbalize it.

            All members of the dysfunctional family have one issue in common: They don’t put a stop to the harm.

            Whenever you feel your boundaries being overstepped there is just one single word you have to remember: STOP.

            This is the door to a better, more functional family, because after this, comes the fix.

            But first you have to identify and make others know where exactly lies the problem.

            So go ahead and fearlessly start with “Stop”, followed by your expression of dissatisfaction.

            Putting it to work in real life

            In real life it would be something like this:

            “OK, stop! Every time you belittle me I feel you don’t care. I need attention and respect, and it is your responsibility as my family to provide them to me”

            Or:

            “Stop. When you compare me with my cousin it hurts, I feel like I don’t matter and that’s not ok. I ask you to stop doing it.

            Or:

            “Please stop. When you start yelling all respect is lost and it turns into a battle of who can do it louder. Don’t raise your voice and let’s work this out the way humans do”.

            As you can see, here you start by putting a stop to the toxic behavior when it arises. And afterwards you verbalize why it’s wrong and what needs of you need to be fulfilled.

            This is what you have to remember:

            1-Stop.

            2-Why it’s wrong?

            3-What you need.

            And this will also work well in case you need to do it for another family member.

            It’s a family thing

            A dysfunctional family cannot be fixed by one member alone.

            Yes, a single member can initiate progress and be the leader of the change. But in order to completely become functional all members must contribute to the solution.

            In other words, you will need cooperation…

            So don’t be afraid of asking for it!

            Approach your family member and ask to be listened.

            Advertising

            We sometimes feel our needs are “not that important” or we simply believe they won’t listen. But thinking like this would be like being defeated at an unfought battle.

            You will be amazed by how much people listen when you voice your needs, especially if it implies showing yourself open, vulnerable and in need.

            It’s not a free-for-all battle

            In order to get your family to cooperate, first you must fix your individual relationships with every member of the family. Remember: Relationships are always between two people, and two people only.

            No matter how complex, the quality of a multi-member relationship (like a family) will always depend on the quality of the individual relationships.

            Once you have straightened the relationship with every member of the dysfunctional family you will be able to better communicate with other members and help in the betterment of their individual relationship.

            And this is where we will talk about the fix itself. The one I mentioned in the introduction…

            The method

            1. Drop the ego

            Wherever there is conflict there is ego.

            You cannot fix a relationship where there is ego, because the ego will want to win. Always. Yours and the other person.

            Ego craves control and satisfaction, and in many cases, to establish dominance.

            What does this have to do with a dysfunctional family? Everything. Ego will interfere with every plan you have to fix it.

            It will make people suborn and defensive. And it will also make them drop responsibility. This is why, the first step is to drop the ego.

            After you make sure you are not going to allow your ego to interfere you must work to make the other person do the same. How? By speaking from the heart…

            Tell the other person how important all this is to you.

            Tell the other person that it’s not a matter of arguing, but just working things out together.

            Point out how it is not possible for you to do it alone.

            And ask for sincere attention without any desire of opposition, because what you are doing is by no means in the hopes of harming the other person, but just to better the relationship and stop the damage being dealt to you.

            You will have to point out the mistakes you need corrected, that’s for sure. And that leads me to the next point…

            2. Not blame, but responsibility

            When talking about others’ mistakes we often use an accusatory tone. And that’s natural, it’s what things should be like if ego was not present.

            But since we are all creatures of ego, this immediately brings the shields up. And then unsheathes the swords…

            When we blame others they automatically enter a defensive state, and this only leads to a failed negotiation.

            What you need to do is to shift from blame to responsibility. And even that will have to be done carefully!

            Instead of telling them off or demanding change or complaining, calmly point what the problem with their behavior is.

            As much as this feels contradictory, also make them feel understood. You know how difficult it is to accept a mistake, so just make them feel it’s no big fuzz… which does not mean it’s ok, but it takes tension off.

            You will do something like this:

            “Hello dad. Can I talk with you for a minute? I really need to tell you something.

            I have been feeling pretty sad lately and I know this is something you do care about.

            You see, whenever I talk about my accomplishments you mention something else that makes my achievement pale in comparison.

            I know you don’t do this intentionally and I know you might have not realized this until now, but I want to let you know this really brings me down.

            Advertising

            It would mean a lot to me if you could stop doing it, and it would help better our relationship, because this has already forced me to distance myself from you. And I don’t want that, I want a good, healthy relationship with you”

            What happened here?

            We started off with making it something important, something that needs both time and attention. Then we openly show ourselves vulnerable, just as we are.

            We also mention why he should listen, and shove our feelings there again, because they are important.

            We describe the issue with no attachment and with no hostile intention. It’s just a description.

            And then we take the blame off. Just before we assign responsibility without actually saying it.

            You are not blaming him directly, but you are pointing out the inevitable fact that his actions are causing a dysfunctionality. He is now responsible for changing.

            This is what “switching blame for responsibility” means. What comes next? Doing the work!

            3. Doing the work

            What would any of this mean if, in the end, nothing changes? Exactly, nothing!

            This is why you must follow up with every change that needs to be done.

            Do so in a manner that is not hostile. Bring it up in a casual manner, and emphasizing how you both reached an agreement and how that is important to the family.

            If the person doesn’t follow up don’t hesitate to bring it up again, and tell them you feel disappointed that your honest try at it was not listened.

            It may even be a subject in itself, and therefore the need for another conversation.

            “When you go back to old habits it shows that you didn’t really care about what I said. But back in real life you just reinforce how much contempt you show towards me and my feelings.

            I talk with you because I care. Because although it would be easier for me to just distance myself from you I rather do my part in nurturing this relationship.

            But there is just so much I can do, if you refuse to do your part I can do nothing else.”

            You need very clear and positive communication in order to make this work.

            Love is all you need

            You must remember that in order for a dysfunctional family to become functional, all the work needs to stem from love.

            That is the single one requirement for all this to work: Love.

            And what happens if it simply is not there?

            What happens if, nobody is willing to do what it takes?

            What happens if a member of the family refuses to change and is happy with the harm he or she is dealing?

            There is only one thing you can do:

            To break away.

            Let’s be honest, people, especially adults, are very difficult to change.

            There is a Jewish proverb that I love, which sums it up like this:

            “We spend the rest of our lives trying to unlearn what we learned before we were 7”

            If you find it very hard to change the very traits that make your family dysfunctional or if it’s simply impossible, you still have a card up your sleeve…

            Advertising

            Although nobody likes to beak away from family members, we must remember we have a responsibility with ourselves as individuals, before any relationship with anyone.

            You have the responsibility of making yourself happy and free. Because you matter as an individual, regardless of any relationships you have, be it family, friendship or romantic.

            Putting distance

            So in case you are dealing with a family member who is simply unwilling to change take both physical and emotional distance.

            What do I mean?

            Learn, first, to take their damage in a detached manner.

            Don’t let it hurt you further. Instead take a deep breath and distance yourself emotionally.

            Don’t be attached to feelings such as “Why doesn’t she love me?” or “What did I do to deserve this?” or “If he wasn’t like that my life would be perfect”.

            Simply refuse to keep participating in the emotional downward spiral and accept, even if it’s painful” that there is nothing you can do. Accept that even without that relationship you are whole, you are worthy of love and respect.

            They are their responsibility and you are yours. So decide what is best for you.

            Realize it only comes down to two possibilities:

            I keep the relationship and therefore accept the abuse. Or…

            I choose my peace of mind.

            And don’t let your mind fool you. We often think that since we all are imperfect, we must take the good and the bad behaviors of people. And we are especially forgiving towards our family…

            Well, guess what? We are also responsible adults who are aware and must own to their acts. Never excuse abuse or violence or transgression towards you or anybody else.

            Choose your happiness and if possible, also distance yourself physically, as it will increase your peace of mind tenfold.

            How to prevent it

            There are two key concepts you must bear in mind in order to prevent the dysfunctionality of a family:

            • To be completely aware of one’s own mistakes and not allow them to impact others and…
            • To make sure our SO’s are also on the same channel before creating a family (i.e. having children)

            Dysfunctional families are the product of irresponsible paternity, for the decades-long unresolved emotional conflict ends up surfacing in the family inevitably, and it will for sure harm those who least deserve it: Innocent children.

            You may notice we went from talking about family, to talking about individual relationships, to talking about you. We went from “them” to “us” to “me”.

            Why? Because in the end you have the power to fix a dysfunctional family. To correct the mistakes you have in yours and to prevent dysfunctionalities if you don’t have a family but plan to create one.

            Priorities and clear thought

            You may be part of a dysfunctional family, but that does not mean you are powerless or that you have to suffer the consequences.

            You learned today how it’s all a matter of priorities and thinking clearly.

            You learned that, if love exists, everything is possible. You learned that even when there is no love and no fix for your dysfunctional family, there are still things you can do. It’s a matter of choosing your peace, because you deserve it.

            Everything will be better if you apply this knowledge. If you talk to that problematic family member. If you help them see the harm they are doing. If you make sure they do change and treat you the way you need to be treated…

            If you choose yourself over that toxic family member. If you refuse to justify the harm that others can do to yourself. If you realize the most important relationship you have is with yourself.

            And lastly, that you also have to be aware of your actions and be open to criticism. Because we might be unknowingly harming others. And that would be us creating a dysfunctionality. Don’t allow it to happen.

            Dysfunctional families are not impossible to fix. It just takes love, cooperation and responsibility.

            But if you tried and those elements are not present, just choose yourself instead.
