Introverts, Never Be Ashamed Of Your Asociality

Disregarding the misconceptions, introverts are not anti-social, but are asocial because we find small talk as pointless blah blahs that lacks depth. Whenever introvert talks that serve a purpose, no babble, no gossip, no nonsense. But some introverts hate themselves and feel ashamed for being asocial. You should never do that! Our asociality is, in fact, a blessing in disguise! There are plenty of advantages of being asocial.

1. Talking Isn't Learning

Talking is the most essential part of socializing. But let me ask you a question, "Can you show me someone who has learned more by talking than listening?" No, you can't! Buddha once said, "When you talk, you are repeating what you already know, but if you listen, you may learn something new." Golden words for introverts, aren't they?! And listening means not only listening to someone else but also listening to yourselves, to what your heart says and to what your brain says. Other than listening you could also learn from reading books, observing your emotions and your surroundings. So ultimately 'limitless talking' isn't essential when compared to listening/observing/performing, unless you are a radio jockey!

2. Introverts Could Figure Out Life


There are people who don't know how to deal with life, or what to do with their life. They may be incapable of finding a solution to their problems in life and seek help from others to solve this 'puzzle' called life. Introverts, on the other hand, have their own solutions for most of their problems in life. They are deep thinkers and know that all solutions lie within them. Miyamoto Musashi famously said, "There is nothing outside of yourself that can ever enable you to get better, stronger, richer, quicker or smarter. Everything is within. Everything exists. Seek nothing outside of yourself." The thing is, we could figure out life if we are given an open space and silence! We would go for a walk, talk to ourselves and crack the code of our lives!

3. A Champion Of The Underdog


People would label us as the underdogs while comparing to our charismatic extroverted brothers/sisters. I would say that it's really good because it helps us maintain a low profile and people wouldn't expect wonders from us. They would probably say, "Oh, he is too quiet, aloof and passive. He doesn't have that charm to succeed!" Likewise, they would just write us off. But all of a sudden, we would really make things happen in life. Then it would be our turn and we would look them in the face and say (think, presumably), "Underestimate me again, moron. That'll be fun!" Gandhi once said, "In a gentle way, you can shake the world". Yet another golden words for introverts! 

4. Parties Aren't Always Fun



Parties are sometimes cliches and boring. But we could always have a nice party in our mind, "Oh well, I have visualized the party in my mind and enjoyed. It was a wonderful experience. Thank you!" An introvert shouldn't feel guilty to leave a party/social event early. That's not weird. Okay! Maybe a little weird in some people's view. Never mind. We have priorities and we don't have to dismiss our needs. Some people enjoy parties and some don't. It's as simple as that. So, my fellow introverts, don't be ashamed for being asocial and don't try to fit in. We are unique in our own ways!

  4. I hate when people misuse the word antisocial!
    I'm a huge introvert myself (INTJ and might have schizoid personality disorder), and I definitely don't see anything wrong with being one. My friends know what I'm like, so I don't get any comments about it.
