It is so interesting to learn more about introverts. It seems they get the short end of the stick for sure and it's nice to see what they really think (generally speaking) and what they bring to a relationship.
Not involved in the popularity contest! Introverts are not out to win the popularity contest. In fact, they don't really like the attention. They prefer for people to get to know them personally and not have to put it on for display. This requires deeper communication and thought. It might be a little more work for someone to get to know an introvert, but once you do it's totally worth it. Because they spend a lot of time in their head, they have a lot of great thoughts and ideas. They are just waiting to share them with someone not concerned with being in the spotlight.
Many people mistake this attribute as being "snobby" or not approachable. They are not trying to be this way. They really are just sitting back and if someone is interested, they will open up for the most part. Unless the other person is an extrovert and just talks and talks and talks. The introvert will gladly listen but you won't learn much about them. But more about that next week.
Thank you for reading. Tomorrow Joleen will finish the last blog. Hope to see you then.
