I find it interesting and yet troublesome that quiet people get the quick label of an arrogant person. Quietness does not equal arrogance , research shows that it equals in higher intelligence , many people are socially shy , introverted or instead observe .
The quick labels are a lazy tactic applied by those who want to avoid the discomfort that silence brings .
Usually, if you’re quiet, you are labelled as shy or bullied , however if you’re pretty and quiet, it is more probable that a person may be labelled as conceited or arrogant.
I just wish people would understand that just cause some people don’t talk much doesn’t mean they lack confidence, self believe or their own ideas . Its actually the other way around.
Myths about introverts.
Myth 1# Introverts don’t like to talk. This is not true. Introverts just don’t talk unless they have something to say . They hate small talk . Get an introvert talking about something they are interested in , and they won’t shut up for days .
Myth 2# Introverts are shy. Shyness has nothing to do with being an introvert . Introverts are not necessarily afraid of people . What they need is a reason to interact . They don’t interact for the sake of interacting.
Myth 3 # Introverts are rude. Quiet people often don’t see a reason for beating around the bush with social media pleasantries . They want everyone to be just real and honest . Unfortunately , this is not acceptable in most settings , so they can feel a lot of pressure to fit in , which they even find exhausting.

” Never assume quiet is weak and loud is strong .”
An introverts personality traits aren’t necessarily tentative or hesitant , but they do prefer to think before they act. When introverts are ready they take action, they expects less and stay happy with no disappointments. They can focus their attention more readily and for longer period of time than extroverts and they aren’t easily swayed by other people’s opinions.
Quiet people hold so much power that is overlooked. They tend to be more effective than their extroverts counterparts , statistically more intelligent and oddly better leaders as they don’t dominate others and are more inclined to let individuals idea flourish. They are creative , imaginative and deep thinkers.
