8. Introverts and knowledge
Lemony Snickets, the author of A Series of Unfortunate Events, once mentioned in one of his books that well-read people cannot possibly be evil. We can all agree that the statement holds some truth to it, for once you’ve been exposed to the world’s information you become more and more of a humanitarian – from reading books about psychology and nature – sympathetic to the ill – from reading about diseases and patients journey through their illnesses – and more tolerant of other humans – from reading about other people’s experiences.
Not to mention that well-read people are best at holding conversations and discussions on various topics. And it’s always nice to have a human Google companion when your phone dies.
