In our daily schedule, we come across a variety of people who have contrasting personalities. Some of them belong to the loud, outgoing or party-animal category, whereas, the others belong to the reserved, observant, mysterious or leave-me-alone-with-my-peace sort of category. Let’s know more about the silent knights today.
I always had a question mark in my head when I thought about my personality. When I’m at a gathering, I’ll flutter from person to person all night and engage myself in conversations with strangers. But when I’m left alone, I enjoy my space, and love having dinner or watching a movie alone. That’s when I realized that the term coined for such adaptive personalities is, “Ambiverts”. They are extroverts in social situations and introverts when alone. How flexible is that! 😛
Introverts aren’t that tough to deal with. They know the value of solitude in the world that can’t sit still. They think a lot, but don’t speak much. Their silence shouldn’t be confused with the fact that they have nothing to say. They react slowly to situations, unlike the extroverts.
What they hate the most is when people can’t digest their silence 🤫 and question them regarding the same. The reason they don’t appreciate making social appearances is not because they are anti-social, it’s just that they don’t like pretending that they are having the best time of their life when the only thought they have in mind, is to go home and change into their pajamas.
If it’s OK for an extrovert to point out how quiet someone is, why is it so wrong for an introvert to point out how loud someone is? I need to talk more? You need to shut up more…
They have a low tolerance for bullshit and stupidity. Thus, they abstain themselves from polluting the environment with the pointless noise emanating from their mouth.
BUT, if they feel that somebody is matching their vibe, they open up. They prefer to have few close friends rather than a lot of acquaintances. They don’t like being in the spotlight. But if they show the real version of themselves to you, you should know that you are very special to them.
The reason they act differently around different people isn’t because they are fake. It’s just that they have a different comfort level with people. So the more comfortable they are with you, the more real they’ll be around you. And trust me when I say this, they’ll do the stupidest things with you if you fit into their small world.
They aren’t like the aliens who need scientists or experts to understand them. They are just like you and me, normal human beings. They just have a different wavelength (because no two people are the same) and they are happy with what they are. We should also respect their reserved nature and not poke them continuously.
Lastly, I would like to put forward one of my recent favorite quotes.
