The Creative Minds of Introverts
Our society tends to divide people into two types: Those who are outgoing, extroverted, and then those who are reserved, introverted. We live in a world where the majority of people exhibit an extroverted personality. As a result, introverts are often misunderstood because of common misconceptions society has placed upon them. What individuals see when they meet an introvert is that they are shy, quiet, and “antisocial.” These personality traits lead to assumptions that introverts are not intelligent, not worthy of leadership, and will not be successful. In spite of common misconceptions, introversion is an asset to creative innovations in society. Introverts have made a greater impact on our world than what we think. From all categories such as science, technology, history, and the arts, numerous introverts have contributed new ideas and movements that have evolved society into what it is today.
