Are You an Introvert?
As an introvert, you’re likely to enjoy a more quiet and serene lifestyle away from the limelight. Solitude is your virtue. You’re likely to be perfectly happy by yourself reading a book or watching a movie, taking a hike on foot or a bicycle, gardening, or just sitting and watching a sunset.
That’s not to say that you can’t function in large groups. It’s just that introverts are at their best in a calmer, more peaceful environment. You won’t find many introverts making a career in public speaking or high-visibility positions. But, introverts are known for making great contributions to society and the world. They have a big impact on society and in shaping the world. Introverts are often scientists, creators, philosophers, thinkers, writers, artists, park rangers, and often “techies.
Introverts are generally considered happier and have fewer goals or lofty expectations, and you may find them perfectly happy with the way things are. In communications, an introvert prefers texts and emails over in-person meetings or phone calls.
