Everyone is a secret judge. We judge each other by our clothes, our decisions, and even by what type of people we are (if we’re introverted, extroverted, or ambiverted.) It’s no secret that one of the most judged people on earth is those who prefer quietude in loud cities, small to no gatherings, and indoor activities. I’m talking about Introverts of course. I’ve mentioned on more than one occasion that introverts are incredibly misunderstood, but we’re going to clear things up here. So here are some reasons not to judge an introvert.
1. Introverts and IQs
It is easy to get mistaken for a quiet, uninteresting person when you prefer to listen rather than speak. And it is true that introverts prefer to observe, think, and then conclude and share their conclusion with others. However, not everyone can understand that. Some believe that quietness is due to lack of thoughts and not due to shyness. But that’s not the case when it comes to introverts. There is a use to prioritizing alone time, especially in intelligence. It has been estimated that more than 75% of people with IQs higher than 160 are introverted. And although introverts are quiet most of the time, it’s not because they have no intelligent thought to share, it’s because they are observing before they go for the kill.
