Time in Nature

The weather is perfect today! The dew point in way down. It’s breezy. The sun is out and allows you patches of warmth.

I grabbed some Subway and went to the park. I wasn’t there long; but the time there was much needed. It was absolutely lovely!!

I hope you take some time for self Care today ☺️ Do something that’ll make you smile. Do something kind for someone else 🙂

With Love and Light

Introverts… “Uummm?”

Have you ever heard the term introvert? Introverted? What about extrovert? Extroverted?

Anything ringing a bell?

Maybe you have; FANTASTIC! You’re already ahead of the game. {There’s only one prize at the finish line: additional knowledge for your brain bank.}

If you have but know/remember very little, or you don’t know anything at all…. Get your pens and pads ready.

According to Dictionary.com

Introvert

Noun: person who prefers calm environments, limits social engagement, or embraces a greater than average preference for solitude.

Also

Psychology: a person characterized by concern primarily with his or her own thoughts and feelings

Additionally:

Verb (to used with object): to turn inward: to introvert one’s anger.

Psychology: to direct (the mind, one’s interest, etc.) partly to things within the self.,

Anatomy/Zoology: to turn (a hollow, cylindrical structure) in on itself; invaginate.

IN COMPARISON:

Extrovert

Noun: outgoing, gregarious person who thrives in dynamic environments and seeks to maximize social engagement.

Psychology. a person characterized by extroversion; a person concerned primarily with the physical and social environment.

Adjective: ex·tro·vert·ed.having a disposition that is energized through social engagement and languishes or chafes in solitude, resulting in a personality that is gregarious, outgoing, and sociable.

Psychology: marked by extroversion.verb (used with object)

Psychology: to direct (the mind, one’s interest, etc.) outward or to things outside the self.

………………

Each is unique in it’s characteristics, needs, personality traits, etc.

If you’re like me, you’re a type B personality… you know, stops to marvel at a gorgeous sunset, although you’re already late for an appointment or what have you.

So, speaking is much less dominating for introverts. We’re dominantly feelers.

A few days ago, I came across a super cool article from Introvert, Dear.

The article is called “Why Is Writing Easier Than Speaking for Introverts? Here’s the Science

Science????????? What the what???? There’s actual studies, theories, and absolute results to backup “less social”.

Number one: YES!!!! {I had no idea!!}

And

Number two: Those of us who are (being quiet) is 1/3-1/2 of our population!! None of us should ever HAVE BEEN TOLD nor should EVER TELL a child they need to be “more social”.

Introverted individuals shouldn’t be automatically labeled as Autistic or Selective Auditory Impaired.

I found this information profound in understanding myself (first) and others.

And when I spend time with myself first, improving who I am… I can give my best self to the world.

I absolutely encourage you to take an hour or two and explore the Verbal Memory of Introverts, Sound levels of Extroverts, Social Settings of Introversion or Workforce supported Extroversion.

Here’s some resources:

1. Introvert, Dear

2. The 3 Explanations: Why Introverts Struggle to Speak Up

3. The Power of Introverts- Susan Cain

4. Why Introverts May Find It Hard When Life Returns to Normal

5. What is an Introvert

Very insightful knowledge! Learning yourself is where you should start.. within ourselves is where change happens.

I hope you enjoyed this post.

Great Post 🌼🌸🌼🌸

I have found, one of the best ways to throw yourself into a writing community is to participate in a few challenges. Not only, will you discover amazingly talented people, but also, read versions of the challenge that invite conversation. You never have to participate; but, if you are newer to blogging, or you would like more followers, mingle among other writers.
