Short Read: The power of introverts

Introverts are often looked down by people as shy and not so creative. According to psychology, solitude is considered a vital trait found in the most creative people. In fact, introverts prove to be better leaders than extroverts as introverts contemplate the situations more while an extrovert can get excited very quickly and lose the track of what’s important. Being an introvert is a good thing. When one introvert speaks out his views, it is worth a thousand extroverts. Albert Einstein, Rosa Parks, J.K. Rowling, Abraham Lincoln and Mahatma Gandhi were introverts and despite that, they left their impact on the world. The idea that extroverts are better than introverts has landed extroverts more important positions at a firm. Almost 90% of high positions are held by them. Having a preference of a quiet alone time over a dinner party with people is completely fine. A person is in his most creative self in solitude because unknowingly, our opinions are affected by the people around us to an extent that we are not aware of. It is quite natural and reflexive to be dominated by the thoughts of a person who is the most charming or of extrovert nature present in the room. When alone, we have a better control over our thoughts and better concentration too. It is the blend of introverts and extroverts that gives us the most desirable combination. A group consisting of only extroverts or introverts does no good.

  1. This is interesting. I have noticed as I have gotten older than I have transitioned from an extrovert to an introvert. I think it is because of my job … I have to interact with people all day. By the end of the day I just want to sit quietly. That really doesn’t happen with my little ones. 🙂 I can definitely see how introverts can be viewed as shy or not creative. All of the introverts I know are very creative! Thanks for sharing!

  2. I disagree with those who would think they are shy and not so creative. I find the most creative people are introverts.

  3. As an introvert, in a world of seemingly extroverted people, I agree with your statement that it’s “the blend of introverts and extroverts that gives us the most desirable combination.” There is no one way to do things or view things. I’ve added Quiet to my wishlist for future reading.

  4. I am part of the introvert squad as well! Like Leta suggested, I highly recommend the book Quiet by Susan Cain, an excellent read!
