Why Are Introverts Misunderstood In Modern American Society

the-lighted-being:

I can’t stress enough how much this article couldn’t have explained the misunderstanding of introverts any better.
Introverts are frequently maligned and misunderstood in this extroverted society. Introverts are usually seen as “the other”. Only recently have introverts are considered a legitimate personality type. Introverts offer unique skills and perspectives to society. Introverts are to be respected and cherished, not derided.

Teachers even considered introverted children to be socially retarded, needing psychological counseling and therapy. Parents, too, are not so reasonable regarding their introverted children. Many times parents are ashamed of their introverted children, wishing that they were more extroverted “like normal children are.” …their parents told them to be more like “normal children” which oftentimes irrevocably damages their self-worth.

I wanted to bold this for emphasis because it starts when we’re young and we grow up believing that we have to “fix” or “cure” our natural personality that we were born with. There is definitely something wrong about that. Here’s an advice from the article:

Advice to introverts: Never estimate yourself or your talents. You have more emotional and psychological resources and knowledge than you know. When people get more involved with introverts, they are usually surprised at what introverts can usually do! It is not the extroverts who necessarily knows the most! Introverts have talents that most people cannot fathom!

AHA!

10 Myths About Introverts

zclyh:

I read this article, and it’s completely correct. As an introvert, it’s always bugged me when others believe the myths stated, no matter how I’ve tried to explain. Read, and please share.

I have read this article before and am very pleased to have come across it again, with someone agreeing as I do about the truth this reveals. :)

Self Interested

naturalbornliar:

Don’t let anyone ever tell you being self-interested is a bad thing. The world is full of people who spent too much time worrying about others and not enough time peering honestly at themselves. 

The result is a population of idiots with hollow hearts and suffocated minds.

Learn yourself. Photograph yourself. Write about yourself. 

Just don’t talk about yourself.

Natural Born Liar: Feminist But Still Feminine

naturalbornliar:

Women are goddesses. Butt naked, we are works of art. We grow humans. We nurture. And, increasingly, are making more money than men.

Virginia Woolf (my obsession) said that a man can never “write a woman.”

I say, put on your lipstick, let your feet go numb from blood red stilettos, spend more…

"More and more, navigating a menu is fraught with treachery. You look across the lunch table at a work colleague and have to decide if you should suggest ordering a glass of Burgundy—or is it too early in the day or the week? If it was a brave man who ate the first oyster, it’s a braver one who orders the first martini."

— David Coggins via Bergdorf Goodman. (via internalpolicy)
