Ada beberapa hal tentang Introvert yang sering disalah pahami. Banyak yang mengatakan mereka sombong karena tidak suka berbasa-basi dan sedikit bicara, banyak juga yang menganggap Introvert adalah sosok yang kurang menyenangkan karena pasif dan cenderung suka menyendiri. Tapi sebenarnya Introvert tidak begitu. Mereka memilih untuk tidak terlalu banyak bicara jika merasa tidak ada yang penting untuk dibicarakan, mereka juga tahu caranya bersenang-senang. Namun mereka butuh waktu untuk mengistirahatkan sejenak pikiran mereka setelah berada di tempat keramaian. Jadi biarkan mereka sendiri untuk siap kembali.

Saya telah merangkum beberapa quote tentang Introvert yang di antaranya mematahkan anggapan masyarakat yang selama ini salah menilai tentang Introvert.

Faranggi Eva Lutvika

“Introverts, in contrast, may have strong social skills and enjoy parties and business meetings, but after a while wish they were home in their pajamas. They prefer to devote their social energies to close friends, colleagues, and family. They listen more than they talk, think before they speak, and often feel as if they express themselves better in writing than in conversation. They tend to dislike conflict. Many have a horror of small talk, but enjoy deep discussions.” Susan Cain

“When introverts go to church, we crave sanctuary in every sense of the word, as we flee from the disorienting distractions of twenty-first-century life. We desire to escape from superficial relationships, trivial communications and the constant noise that pervade our world, and find rest in the probing depths of God’s love.” Adam S. McHugh

“Introverts treasure the close relationships they have stretched so much to make.” Adam S. McHugh

“Let’s clear one thing up: Introverts do not hate small talk because we dislike people. We hate small talk because we hate the barrier it creates between people.” Laurie Helgoe

“If you’re an introvert, you also know that the bias against quiet can cause deep psychic pain. As a child you might have overheard your parents apologize for your shyness. Or at school you might have been prodded to come “out of your shell”— that noxious expression which fails to appreciate that some animals. naturally carry shelter everywhere they go, and some humans are just the same.” Susan Cain

“I have to be alone very often. I’d be perfectly happy if I spent Saturday night until Monday morning alone in my apartment. That’s how I refuel.” Audrey Hepburn

“Introverts living under the Extroversion Ideal are like women in a man’s world, discounted because of a trait that goes to the core of who they are. Extroversion is an enormously appealing personality style, but we’ve turned it into an oppressive standard to which most of us feel we must conform” Susan Cain

“Telling an introvert to go to a party is like telling a saint to go to Hell.” Criss Jami

“…I also believe that introversion is my greatest strength. I have such a strong inner life that I’m never bored and only occasionally lonely. No matter what mayhem is happening around me, I know I can always turn inward.” Susan Cain
