Common Misconceptions about Introverts

1- Introversion is a Disability

“What’s wrong with you?”. This must be the most common response introverts gets as teenagers when they announce they would prefer to go directly home after school to continue reading Harry Potter and The Half-blood Prince, instead of heading out with the others to play foot ball or ride bicycles around the neighborhood.

2- Introverts have no Friends

It may seem that way for someone who is not aware of the introverts’ deep connections and feelings. An introvert will never have tens of so called friends with whom he has shallow conversations about everyday news or whatever. Introverts do not engage in small talk. Period.

3- Introverts are a minority
