Myths Facts About Introverts :
Myth #1 – Introverts don’t like to talk.
This is not true. Introverts just don’t talk unless they have something to say. They hate small talk. Get an introvert talking about something they are interested in, and they won’t shut up for days.
Myth #2 – Introverts are shy.
Shyness has nothing to do with being an Introvert. Introverts are not necessarily afraid of people. What they need is a reason to interact. They don’t interact for the sake of interacting. If you want to talk to an Introvert, just start talking. Don’t worry about being polite.
Myth #3 – Introverts are rude.
Introverts often don’t see a reason for beating around the bush with social pleasantries. They want everyone to just be real and honest. Unfortunately, this is not acceptable in most settings, so Introverts can feel a lot of pressure to fit in, which they find exhausting.
Myth #4 – Introverts don’t like people.
On the contrary, Introverts intensely value the few friends they have. They can count their close friends on one hand. If you are lucky enough for an introvert to consider you a friend, you probably have a loyal ally for life. Once you have earned their respect as being a person of substance, you’re in.
Myth #5 – Introverts don’t like to go out in public.
Nonsense. Introverts just don’t like to go out in public FOR AS LONG. They also like to avoid the complications that are involved in public activities. They take in data and experiences very quickly, and as a result, don’t need to be there for long to “get it.” They’re ready to go home, recharge, and process it all. In fact, recharging is absolutely crucial for Introverts.
Myth #6 – Introverts always want to be alone.
Introverts are perfectly comfortable with their own thoughts. They think a lot. They daydream. They like to have problems to work on, puzzles to solve. But they can also get incredibly lonely if they don’t have anyone to share their discoveries with. They crave an authentic and sincere connection with ONE PERSON at a time.
Myth #7 – Introverts are weird.
Introverts are often individualists. They don’t follow the crowd. They’d prefer to be valued for their novel ways of living. They think for themselves and because of that, they often challenge the norm. They don’t make most decisions based on what is popular or trendy.
Myth #8 – Introverts are aloof nerds.
Introverts are people who primarily look inward, paying close attention to their thoughts and emotions. It’s not that they are incapable of paying attention to what is going on around them, it’s just that their inner world is much more stimulating and rewarding to them.
Myth #9 – Introverts don’t know how to relax and have fun.
Introverts typically relax at home or in nature, not in busy public places. Introverts are not thrill seekers and adrenaline junkies. If there is too much talking and noise going on, they shut down. Their brains are too sensitive to the neurotransmitter called Dopamine. Introverts and Extroverts have different dominant neuro-pathways. Just look it up

Hello stalker, hope you’re having a good day :))
Lamaaaa banget aku gak nulis ataupun baca, so… Maklumin kalau gaya nulisnya aneh yaa *atau dari dulu aneh?* :))
Ini bulan agustus 2012, sudah setaun lebih sejak pertama kali nginjakkan kaki di malaysia. It means, I’m not maba anymore! Haha, di akhir agustus nanti aku bakal ngejalanin taun kedua ku sebagai mahasiswa :D
Time isn’t flies fast for me, really. 1 taun ini terasa bener2 apa adanya. Nggak terasa lama, nggak terasa cepet, bener2 1 tahun.
1 tahun yang dilewati out of comfort zone dan berkali kali adaptasi.
Aku ingat gimana berantakannya aku ngatur tugas dan ngadepin ujian di semester 1, dan di semester 2 aku bisa lebih sedikit baik untuk ngatur waktuku. Dimana setiap banyak tugas, banyak tekanan pasti aku tumbang dengan sukses, entah sakit gigi, sakit maag, sakit kepala, demam. Sumpah seumur hidup aku gak pernah ngerasain semua itu kecuali demam, too much pressure, maybe :p
Pergi merantau dalam rangka kuliah, aku ngerasa, dunia yang aku tinggali dalam 17 taun bener2 aman. Disini, banyak banget hal2 yang menurutku nggak wajar, dimata orang lain, well biasa aja. Iya, ngerokok, ngebir, ke diskotek, satu kamar sama pacar itu biasa aja.
‘Ya ampun szal, pergi ke diskotek itu sekarang ya sama aja kaya kamu pergi ice skating, biasa aja’
‘Ya kamu sih ga punya hak, kalau pun mereka mau satu kamar itu hak mereka’
Berkali-kali aku terheran-heran dengan orang2 yang punya open minded (or too open?). Aneh, bener2 aneh.
Anehku, aneh bagi mereka. Sampai akhirnya, aku juga mengerti batas wajar mereka. Being normal here is too mainstream, until I become kinda abnormal, :p
Kalau sekarang2 ada yang berita kaya gituan mah, jawabanku cuma ‘yaudah sih’ atau ‘oh’ saking aku udah biasanya ngedengar yang kayak gitu.
Kalau aku bisa ketemu diriku satu taun yang lalu pasti aku dianggap, aneh. No more innocence?
#np- goodbye innocence - utada hikaru
After 1 year..
Struggling, cry, hope, stress, smile, happiness, relationship, friends, housemates, family, time, problem, sick, college, home. Everything. It happens.
And, now I know more about my self.
Aku sadar masih punya banyak banyak banget kelemahan.
Semoga tahun kedua, aku bisa bener2 memperbaiki sifat jelekku x)
:) thanks for reading.
Life is hard already, don’t make it harder. Try to feel happy, because that feeling will save you when you are in deep sadness. Smile :) — Be strong :)
Mungkin yang sekarang ada dipikiran mereka sekarang saya sedang ketawa, bahagia menikmati kebebasan. Tanpa harus mikir tentang hal hal itu lagi. Mata saya merah dari pagi, saya cuma diam duduk -hampir- tidak berbicara. Sumpah, saya nggak ngerti bagian dari mananya yang harus dimaklumi. — Early in the morning.
