In what ways are introvert people often misunderstood?

The TED talk of Susan Cain about introvert people gives very enlightening information about this.

Intro Verten are often misunderstood in terms of social interaction.People think they are shy or quiet or just don’t have much to tell, but embarrassment is something completely different than intro version.

Intro Version/Extra version is about how you react to all sorts of stimuli and specifically also in social context that gives some differences and misunderstanding.

An introvert is completely in its element in a quieter, quieter environment, while extroverted people prefer to have as much action and input as possible.

Because our society is typically rather busy, that introverts often causes overstimulation, which can cost a lot of energy.Their presence in a larger, crowded group makes them feel just bad or even isolated, and they would prefer a quiet place to retreat and recharge again.

Extrovert people just get energy from active environments where as much as possible happens.An introvert may then fold a little close, because they feel overwhelmed.

Intro Verten are also not anti-social, they prefer to address interaction simply in a different way.Intro Verten are rather like in-depth conversations, and don’t talk of superficial chatter. This first form is of course less covered in the busy, high energy situations.

They don’t have such a desire to get involved with Smalltalk and that can happen again if they are quiet or have nothing to say.While with an introvert you can actually have a very animated and extensive in-depth conversation, but rather in the right place (where you don’t have to try to talk about the loud music) and about a much more interesting subject than the weather, say.

Introverts also think a bit more about what they want to say and then come a little later with extra additions, after they have put everything in a row.

For example, a certain difficult conversation between family, friends or partners is not completed at the time the first interaction is in the end. Introvert people will have a much clearer picture of what was said and what they find and want to come back to them after a night’s sleep.

Extra Verten think then sometimes that there is said what had to be said, the chance there was to speak again and it is classed there and then, while the introvert had to actually process everything first.

Yet another common example: In a meeting where typical fast ping-pong is played with proposals and ideas, a more introverted person will, for example, choose to put all that first into a list of what was said, to To form his opinion and subsequently give his own feedback.

A decision at the moment to enforce itself is what is too short by the bend and introvert people therefore sometimes need a little more time to weigh all opinions and angles.

This is not the most common and accepted way to deal with meetings, and yet a third to half of the population is a bit more introvert to classify.

(Note: Intro version/extra version by the way, it’s a spectrum you can be on and not a black and white format).
