Have you ever wondered what it is like being an introvert? Are you an introvert yourself and struggle for people to understand you? Well, there’s a day dedicated to introversion; World Introvert Day! In a world where extroversion is the dominant force that plays in the spotlight, introversion takes place behind the scenes. As a result, being an introvert doesn’t mean that you can’t function in society, and so World Introvert Day is a dedicated holiday to proving people just that fact.

World Introvert Day is about bringing awareness about the inward-focused world of introverts, and that their actions and habits don’t make them less normal. Many studies have shown that introverts, despite their habits are an important minority that work behind the scenes of an extroverted world to keep it functioning. So, each year, many introverts take this time to recharge by doing their favorite hobbies after the exciting events of the major holidays and prepare themselves for the year to come. There are many blog sites that focus their audience on the aspects of introversion, and even celebrate it, and so World Introvert Day is a huge highlight in observing the world of introverts.

Actions:

So, how do you celebrate being an introvert? Get comfy in your home and read a book! Do some self-care routines like bathing and spa treatments. Clean up the house. Take care of your animals. Sleep for over 8 hours. If you’re not so much an introvert, take the time to look up famous introverts and learn more about the psychology of introversion. If you want, follow some good blog websites that talk about introverts. Take this time to recharge, even if you’re not an introvert yourself. You’re probably going to need it after New Year’s is over.

Vous pensez pouvoir reconnaître un introverti dans une foule? Pensez-y à nouveau. Même si le cliché de l’introverti voudrait qu’il soit celui qui, lors d’une fête, reste seul près du buffet à pianoter sur son iPhone, un être sociable peut tout autant avoir une personnalité introvertie.

“Reconnaître un introverti peut s’avérer plus difficile que de trouver Charlie”, déclare Sophia Dembling

Malgré les débats fréquents sur le thème de l’introversion, celle-ci reste un trait de personnalité relativement mal compris. Récemment, en 2010, l’Association américaine de psychiatrie a même étudié l’idée de classer les cas de “personnalités introverties” comme des troubles en les faisant figurer dans le Manuel diagnostique et statistique (DSM-5), servant à diagnostiquer les maladies mentales.
