World Introvert Day celebrated today all over the world and here we discuss what is introvert. Introversion is one of the major personality traits identified in many theories of personality.
People who are introverted tend to be inward turning, or focused more on internal thoughts, feelings and moods rather than seeking out external stimulation.
According to many theories of personality, everyone has some degree of both introversion and extroversion. However, people often tend to lean one way or the other.
Introverts tend to be more quiet, reserved and introspective. Unlike extroverts who gain energy from social interaction, introverts have to expend energy in social situations. After attending a party or spending time in a large group of people, introverts often feel a need to "recharge" by spending a period of time alone.
If you identify with some characteristics of introversion and some characteristics of extroversion, then there is a pretty good chance that you are one of the 70 percent of people who fall some where in the middle.
In one study of adult introverts between the ages of 18 and 80, those who had strong social relationships and emotional regulation skills were found to be happier than who did not have those skills.
Introversion is perfectly normal. If you find, however, that your introverted tendencies are the result of anxiety that impacts your normal, day to day functioning, consult your physician or mental heath professional.
