Introverts are a misunderstood bunch. Compared to extroverts, they think differently, act differently, and even look differently when they interact with people. But there are a lot of misconceptions about what it means to be “introverted。” Here are 15 of them:

我們對內向的人有諸多誤會。和外向的人相比,他們的思維方式言行舉止甚至和人交往的方式都有著差異。下面我們一起看看對于內向的人我們常常抱有的15大誤區吧:

Misconception #1: Introverts are shy。

誤區1:內向的人都很害羞

Being “shy” and “introverted” are two completely different things. Introverts are not necessarily shy or afraid of people. They don’t just don’t prefer talking for the sake of talking。

害羞和內向完全是兩個不同的概念。內向的人不一定害羞或是害怕與人打交道。他們只是不喜歡為了說話而說話罷了。

Misconception #2: Introverts are unemotional。

誤區2:內向的人缺乏感情

Introverts may not show emotion with their facial expressions and gestures, but this doesn’t mean they’re not interested in what you’re saying. Introverts prefer to control their emotions around others and internalize them. Although someone who’s introverted may not appear engaged, this is usually not the case。

內向的人也許不會靠面部表情或手勢來表達自己的情感,但這不意味著他們對你所說的話不感興趣。內向的人更傾向于在人群中控制自己的情緒,悶在心里。也許外表看起來內向的人有點心不在焉,但實際也許并不是這樣哦。

Misconception #3: Introverts don’t like working in groups。

誤區3:內向的人不喜歡團隊合作

Introverts often do their best work alone, so co-workers may misunderstand them and think they don’t want to partake in group work. While introverts do have a tendency to shut down in larger groups of people when they feel like their voice isn’t being heard, introverts excel in small group situations and enjoy working in these types of environments, as long as their opinion is valued。

內向的人往往能很好的獨立完成任務,同事們就會覺得也許他們不適合團隊合作,這可大錯特錯了。在人堆里,如果別人聽不到自己的意見,那么內向的人就會表現得非常安靜,在小范圍人群中,他們往往會更加突出,只要想法能被肯定,他們也會非常享受這樣的工作環境。

Misconception #4: Introverts don’t like talking。

誤區4:內向的人不喜歡說話

It’s not that introverts don’t like to talk, it’s that they prefer to listen before they talk. Introverts choose their words carefully and they think small talk is a waste of time. But, they’re more than willing to engage you in a deep conversation about topics they’re passionate about。

不是內向的人不喜歡說話,而是他們更喜歡傾聽罷了。內向的人總是斟詞酌句,認為閑聊比較浪費時間。但是一旦遇到感興趣的話題,他們會更加樂意與你深談。

Misconception #5: Introverts are scared to look you in the eye。

誤區5:內向的人不敢看你的眼睛

In general, introverts may not make eye contact with you as much as extroverts. This is because they don’t feel the need to partake in social norms and rituals as much as extroverts, not because they’re “scared。”

一般說來,內向的人不會像外向的人那樣和你進行過多的眼神交流。這是因為他們覺得沒有必要去遵守所謂的社交規則和慣例,并不代表他們害羞。

Misconception #6: All introverts are poor public speakers。

誤區6:所有內向的人都不善于演講

Some introverts may not like speaking in large group settings; however, many introverts are naturally gifted speakers. And, introverts generally spend more time preparing for speeches and presentations rather than “flying by the seat of their pants。”

有些內向的人也許不喜歡在人多的場合發言,然而有些卻真的天生就是演說家。內向的人通常會花更多的時間來準備演講和發言,而不是“想到哪說到哪”。

Misconception #7: Introverts just want to be left alone。

誤區7:內向的人喜歡一個人待著

While it’s true that introverts prefer to “re-charge” with some quiet time reading or reflecting, they also crave human interaction and enjoy the company of others。

當然,內向的人喜歡在安靜地場合靠閱讀或反思來再充電,他們也需要人際交往享受別人的陪伴。

Misconception #8: Introverts over-analyze everything。

誤區8:內向的人什么都要分析一番

Introverts like to analyze situations and consider all possible scenarios before making decisions. Sometimes this can lead to “analysis paralysis,” but in general, it’s a positive trait that allows them to make tough decisions with a rational stream of thought。

在做決定之前,內向的人喜歡把所有可能的情況都想到,分析所有的情景。有時這反而會導致“分析無力”,但通常而言,一番理智分析之后做出艱難決定的方式是值得鼓勵的。

Misconception #9: Introverts are high strung。

誤區9:內向的人總是精神緊張

The opposite is actually true. Introverts tend to be much more even-keeled and level than extroverts. They are able to objectively view all scenarios, even during times of stress。

說反啦。相比外向的人而言,內向的人更容易平靜下來。他們可以客觀的看待所有的情況,哪怕是在重壓之下。

Misconception #10: Introverts are underachievers。

誤區10:內向的人都是差生

Because we have such an affinity for the charismatic, personable, extroverted leader, some people assume that introverts are underachievers compared to extroverts. However, there are millions of successful introverted scientists, artists, physicians, writers, and philosophers. Achievement is not necessarily related to personality type。

我們總是會對有魅力,有個性外向的領導者所折服,所以很多人認為內向的人比不過外向的。然而,我們有無數性格內向的成功科學家、藝術家、醫生、作家和哲學家。成功和性格類型其實沒有多大聯系。

Misconception #11: Introverts can “break out of their shell” and become extroverts。

誤區11:內向的人可以突破自己的殼,成為外向的人

Introversion is an inborn personality type that you can’t change. Many people falsely believe that introverts can (or want to) “unlearn” their quiet, passive tendencies。

內向是與生俱來無法改變的個性特征。很多人錯誤的認為內向的人可以或想要突破他們的安靜成為相反的人。

Misconception #12: Introverts are rude。

誤區12:內向的人都很粗魯

Introverts get a bad rap because they don’t show emotion like extroverts do. This causes people to misunderstand them and mistake their stone-face demeanor for rudeness, which isn’t the case。

有這個壞名聲在于內向的人不會像外向的人那么喜歡展現自己的情緒。這會讓人誤會,也把他們面無表情解讀為粗魯擺臭臉,其實完全不是這回事。

Misconception #13: Introverts are no fun。

誤區13:內向的人都很無趣

Introverts are all about having a good time–they just prefer environments that are quieter and more low-key. They don’t mind going to parties, but they prefer to spend time socializing in their inner circle of friends。

內向的人也很有趣——他們只是喜歡比較安靜和低調的環境罷了。他們不介意去參加聚會,只是喜歡和親近的人在一起度過歡樂時光。

Misconception #14: Introverts don’t make good leaders。

誤區14:內向的人當不好領導

Introverts can be quiet but confident leaders. They are particularly effective at managing extroverts because they’re good listeners and don’t compete with them。

內向的人可以是非常冷靜自信的領導。他們可以高效領導外向的人,因為他們是好的傾聽者,不會去爭搶。

Misconception #15: Extroverts are happier than introverts。

誤區15:外向的人比內向的人更快樂

Happiness has nothing to do with one’s personality type. There are happy and unhappy extroverts just like introverts. Personality type does not pre-dispose you to be unhappy。

快樂和人的個性特征其實并沒有關系好么。外向的人里也有快樂和不快樂的,這和內向的人沒有區別。個性特征并不會預言你這輩子都不會快樂呀。
