8 Signs You're an Introvert

Introversion is one of the major personality traits identified in many theories of personality.

The following are just a few of the signs that you (or someone you know) might be an introvert.

1. Do you ever feel exhausted after spending time with a lot of people? One of the major characteristics of this personality type is that introverts have to expend energy in social situations.

2. If having a few hours to be alone sounds like your idea of a good time, you just might be an introvert.

3. One common misconception about introverts is that they don't like people. If your social circle tends to be small but very close, there's a pretty good chance you are an introvert.

4. Introverts are often described as quiet, reserved, mellow and are sometimes mistaken for being shy. If you are the quiet type and a bit reserved, you probably are an introvert.

5. If you tend to feel overwhelmed in busy social situations, you probably tend to be an introvert.

6. If you feel that you are self-aware and enjoy gaining deep knowledge about yourself, then you might be more of an introvert.

7. If you like to learn more by watching rather than doing, there is a chance that you have a more introverted personality.

8. careers that involve working independently are often a great choice for introverts. For example, an introvert might enjoy working as a writer, graphic designer, or artist.
