To prove this and hopefully help you feel better knowing that you're not alone, Here are six struggles only introverts could relate to.
What the first impression you make on people? are you usually described as shy whenever you meeting new people? The truth is when you are quieter than most people, it makes sense that people would see you as a shy person upon first meeting. The struggle occurs when people assume things about you just because you're quieter such as you not being confident enough or that you're hiding something. This might be especially bad on job interviews since recruiters usually seek people who are competent in thier own skills and mistake a good first impression.
Sometimes as an Introvert you notice yourself feeling lonelier during parties or social events than when you're by yourself .It might seem like being a statue is the only way out for you While this might sound contradictory, this is a common struggle for introverts. Whenever you go to parties you would feel like there's a wall separating you from other people because of the amount of small talk. Additionally, the small talk will make you feel extremely bored and like you're wasting your precious time. These are two of many of the reasons why you would rather avoid going to parties or social events.
Have you ever felt like people ignore you in the room just because you don't talk as much as others?Well, this is one of the most common struggles for introverts.As an introvert, you usually talk less because you don't know what to say or dont have anything to say as a result, people will not know you well, and underestimate your skills and capabilities. So that why even when you're fit for the job, someone else gets that promotion because of his or her social skills while you feel like you got skipped.
Do you feel like meeting are counterproductive for you? is it easier for you to work alone than coordinate in a group? This is one of the struggles that you can easily relate to as an introvert.You work much more productively in quiet and private environments since focusing on your task with people talking around you is very hard. Additionally, as opposed to the belief that having others around is better for the inspiration, you are more creative and have innovative ideas when you are alone.
And so, the fact that companies usually prefer team players over individualists makes this a struggle for you, even if the results and insights you give are better.
introverts can not stand to be in the spotlight while it's normal to feel extra pressure when being in the spotlight for a normal person for introverts it’s is somewhat extra after all it like they are being watched by more people that you normally would, as an introvert you'll try to avoid speaking in groups or public speaking at all costs because you can't stand peoples' attention being focused on you.
