  • Twelve things introverts are best at doing

  • There's somewhat of a negative stereotype around introverts. People say that they're too quiet to have fun or be social..

  • Well that is a blatant lie.

  • Just because introverts don't feel comfortable walking into a room full of strangers or making friends with everyone in a room

  • Doesn't mean they don't like to be fun or social

  • Introverts have some of the best personality traits. They just usually keep to themselves

  • Here are just some of the things introverts are great at doing.

  • Number One: Having Thought Provoking Conversations

  • Introverts don't like small talk. The whole "How are you?" "Can you believe this weather?" "Did you see the game last night?"

  • Chitchat is worthless

  • Due to their disdain for the idle chatter, they're seen by most as unsociable and this is not the case

  • Introverts want to get straight down to the meat of things. They want to hear your deepest thoughts, your desires, and dreams

  • None of that "I'm fine. How are you?" talk.

  • Introverts know that you have a story to tell and they want to hear it. They want to know your opinions and

  • questions and answers to questions that are infrequently spoken about because of their deep topics

  • Introverts have a therapist guidance counselor mentality and charisma

  • causing us to make you feel more comfortable with speaking your mind and soul. This is good for everyone around

  • Introverts get the satisfaction of having a meaningful conversation with someone without having to fill the empty space with chit chat

  • And you get a part-time therapist. Someone who will really listen to you and your thoughts

  • Number Two: Being Effective Sales People

  • I know what you're thinking. "What? What in the world? An introvert excels at a profession that requires constant visa vie interaction.?"

  • Yes. Introverts pay attention, care, and are comfortable in familiar situations

  • So they can be confident in their daily jobs even as salespeople. Being highly cognitive people, introverts take time to fully

  • understand their product, customer, and outcomes.

  • From this, introverts are highly prepared for any unexpected events such as objections, crankiness, and touchy questions.

  • They might not be happy with it

  • But they can handle it effectively nonetheless.

  • Number Three: Taking Care of Animals

  • Introverts love to be swaddled and love and affection by those close to them especially when it's our furry friends

  • So they do enjoy to return the favor

  • Introverts are professionals at taking care of animals especially when they do it alone. You need a dog sitter? No problem.

  • You need someone to take care of your cat while you're away? Enough said.

  • Introverts have no problem snuggling up next to a dog, cat, bunny, or goldfish and spending a nice day together

  • They enjoy the company of animals more than humans in most situations

  • They sympathize with animals. Introverts can calm a troubled pet since they're experienced with calming their own troubled minds.

  • They have a lot of energy and want to have fun, eat, and get their belly rubbed

  • But when all is said and done they need their rest

  • Same, Dog. Same.

  • Four: Being Observant

  • Introverts aren't quiet without a purpose. They observe. While you're over there talking about the latest fad or your weird dream last night,

  • they're listening and watching

  • They see the way your forehead wrinkles when your grandpa's mentioned, and they notice when there's a new painting hanging up in the office

  • Introverts spend time watching and memorizing their surroundings and environments

  • so they feel comfortable enough to interact with them. Who would jump into the darkness without a flashlight?

  • Introverts prefer to analyze their surroundings rather than focus on biases so that when they finally voice out their misgivings

  • these should be taken seriously

  • Introverts are the first to notice anything slightly out of the ordinary

  • And they're also the ones to be the devil's advocate and notice flaws in ideas and concepts

  • Introverts usually spend a lot of time thinking about the worst possible situation and how to get of it so trust them

  • They know what they're talking about

  • Five: Being Great Leaders

  • As are many of these points, this one is notably surprising.

  • How can someone who dislikes abundant social interaction be a great leader when a leader's job is to lead others?

  • A recent poll shows that not all successful leaders are extroverts

  • Outgoing individuals use their charisma and spunk to command attention and get things done

  • while reserved bosses lay low and observe their underlings and always know what's best for them, the person, and the situation.

  • They never speak just to be heard or because they're the boss. They speak to assist and help others because introverts imagine themselves in quite

  • every situation just to be prepared. They're careful and attentive,

  • humble and prepared, and they're comfortable working alone, showing that good leadership isn't always flashy.

  • So if you ever have a boss that is more on the shy or reserved side

  • This doesn't mean that he or she dislikes you or thinks they're better than you

  • It could be that they're an introvert as well and don't have anything to say about your performance since you're doing a good job without them.

  • Six: Being Great Workers

  • Alongside being great leaders, introverts also know very well when to take a step back and get the work done.

  • They're attentive, wholehearted, determined, and motivated to always do their very best.

  • Since introverts usually don't use their words a quick wit to talk them out of sticky situations

  • They use their intellectual prowess to provide an answer rather than an excuse. Hand them an extended project, let them work alone in a comfortable

  • environment, and you'll get incredible results.

  • Introverts need a little supervision because they're always triple checking

  • themselves, seeing the flaws in everything and preparing every argument that could be made against their work, and working around it to avoid said

  • confrontation. These qualities make them effective followers as well, being dedicated to the completion of their

  • responsibility, provided their solitude is undisturbed.

  • Seven: Listening To Your Troubles

  • Have you ever needed to vent, confided in a close friend and felt like they weren't really even listening to you?

  • That's the opposite of an introvert

  • Since introverts know how hard it is for them to express their emotions verbally, if a loved one

  • expresses feelings to them, they will listen hard and well.

  • Introverts are perfect for when you need a shoulder to cry on or just someone to hear your story.

  • As said earlier, introverts hate small talk, so if you go straight to the meaty deep talk,

  • they'll provide an impeccable set of ears and even some incredible advice for you to follow.

  • Introverts are sensitive to pain, their own and others.

  • They can tell when you're really upset or when you need to get something off your chest. If a reserved friend

  • asks you if everything's all right, there's no need to hide behind another "I'm fine. I'm just tired."

  • Go ahead and tell them what's bothering you. There's no better support than that of an introverted friend

  • Eight: Counseling

  • In addition to listening, introverts excel at helping you cope with your worries.

  • They can easily read people. While others are just listening, an introvert analyzes and interprets the speaker's thoughts, actions,

  • choice of words, and preconceptions. They can notice little body expressions you don't even realize you're doing.

  • They can help you pin down exactly what's bothering you and even suggest how to resolve it

  • Unfortunately, many introverts are familiar with pain and suffering, so they're quite experienced on how to alleviate any emotional pain you're going through.

  • Furthermore, calming someone down isn't all about talking. It's about understanding and making deep relationships built on trust.

  • Being empathetic is what introverts do

  • Having someone there, listening and supporting you in a time of need, is just as comforting as a nice warm

  • hug which many introverts may often initiate in moments like these.

  • Nine: Thinking Before Acting

  • Introverts don't speak quite often, so when they do, every single word was chosen very carefully ahead of time.

  • Sometimes, due to this, introverts may take a while to get a sentence out,

  • since they're mentally preparing and rehearsing each word before they say it.

  • Since introverts take a while to express themselves, many extroverts just ignore them and talk over them.

  • This can cause introverts to become even more shy so that they don't get ignored again, as this is traumatic and embarrassing.

  • So if you're introverted friend speaks up, pay close attention, because what he or she has to say is probably important

  • Ten: Knowing Themselves

  • We all know that quiet persons have the loudest minds

  • Introverts spend a lot of time in their own heads. From this, they know themselves pretty well.

  • Aside from being silent critics, introverts are constantly having inner monologues,

  • evaluating themselves and their choices in everyday situations

  • Thus they rarely have any existential crises and can easily figure out their strengths and weaknesses. They know who they are,

  • what they want, and what is important to them. They might just not tell you all of that information.

  • You could say that they're silent, but confident.

  • Eleven: Being A Source Of Wisdom

  • By nature, introverts love

  • information, learning, and discovering new things.

  • They might not be the first to go mountain climbing

  • But they'll definitely be all over a new NASA discovery. Their minds are constantly

  • urging for more facts and things to ponder over in the silence of their daily lives.

  • Not only that, but they use these interesting facts and information to share with others when the time is relevant.

  • So you never know when your small voiced friend might know the exact answer to your problems after reading about a similar situation months ago.

  • Twelve: Being A Loyal Friend

  • Introvert friends will not betray you. They have no reason to.

  • They would never talk about you behind your back or lie to you in a harmful way

  • Every secret desire or dream you've ever shared with them will always be safe whether or not the friendship lasts.

  • Introverts cherish friendships and no matter the circumstances would never betray someone who once confided in them

  • They value relationships and try hard to keep them, which makes them some of the best friends you will ever have.

  • Introverts have quite a lot of skills in those quiet little bodies. If you're an extrovert, don't be hesitant to communicate with silent peers.

  • You'll be surprised at what they're capable of and if you're an introvert, be proud.

  • You have nothing to feel inferior about, since behind that shyness lies a storm of talents
