8 signs that you are an introvert
When one talks about an introverted person, the first thought is usually the image of a shy and half awkward person on social occasions.

But that’s not how it works. The social aspect is only one of the traits of the introverted personality, and it is not obligatory.

Being introverted has much more to do with feeling stimulated by internal rather than external factors than being seemingly shy.

So instead of looking for traits like shyness, it is more accurate to identify an introvert by checking if a person gains or loses energy when in the company of others, even if they are his friends and she enjoys his company.

Check out 8 signs presented by a true introvert and see if you fit that personality:

1. Shallow talk makes you tired
While the extroverts make a point of drawing conversation, whether about the delay of the elevator or the approaching rain, the introverts see in this habit a source of anxiety and irritation.

This does not mean that they are superior to this type of conversation, but that they do not feel good about talking about something that does not arouse genuine interest.

2. Networking is something that really bothers you.
Networking, that is, talking to random people in order to find professional opportunities, makes the introvert feel the legitimate falsiane, because he always seeks to be authentic in their social interactions.

The solution for introverts is to invest in networking in small groups rather than large crowded occasions.

3. Crowds drain your energy
Crowds bother introverts. In general, being in an environment full of people means having to deal with a lot of noise and difficulties to move around, which causes the introverted energy to go away quickly.

4. You are a good communicator
Here is a characteristic that differentiates the shy from introverts. While shy people are terrified of communicating, introverts do it very well – as long as the subject is in their true interest.

Some examples of introverts that stand out when it comes to communicating are JK Rowling, Emma Watson, Christina Aguilera, Bill Gates and Mahatma Gandhi.

5. You live by distracting yourself
Introverts have a natural tendency to distract themselves in environments with many stimuli, as if this were a way to get their mind off a little of the excitement that so drains their energy.

Extroverts, in turn, get bored in more monotonous environments, as they need to receive more stimuli.

6. You are more observant than average
Introverts often observe details that are beaten by other people. This is because when they feel stifled by the stimuli of the environment, they focus on small details in the quest to restore their mental balance.

7. You have chosen a more solitary career
Introverts prefer professions that allow them to perform tasks in a creative and solitary way, in order to deeply address each topic.

Thus, careers involving writing, technology, and the natural sciences are preferred by introverts, as they provide more internal stimuli at the same time as they are performed in environments without so much information.

8. You love being alone – and you feel you need it
More than enjoying the company itself, introverts need solitary periods to recharge their energy.

For people who have this personality, being in a very hectic environment or among several people means to see their energy fade away, no matter how much they enjoy the activities in which they participated.

In this way, introverts feel the need to spend time alone and quiet, seeing their favorite series, reading or even sleeping a little to restore their balance.

Did you identify with these characteristics? They can help explain why people often think you are shy or dislike companionship, when in fact you feel very tired after socially interacting.

Being introverted has its advantages, such as being good listeners, having a high emotional intelligence and exercising your creativity, so enjoy your personality.
