For example, you’ll probably find yourself reaching out to your introvert for affection far more often than he reaches out to you. In fact, Sophia Dembling, an author who writes about introversion, asked more than 50 introverts how they deal with conflict, and most said that they tended to shut down. Instead of literally taking on problems immediately, I try to give him a little space first, because I get that he needs time to process things mentally before we resolve a conflict.
Also, he understands why we can’t go days without resolving a conflict, even if it’s less stressful and uncomfortable, so we don’t do that either.
And I’d often get asked a variety of annoying questions that , work and school in the U. are both geared around the way extroverts like to work.
It has mostly been easy, but some things have definitely been an adjustment – for both of us.
But before we talk about relationships, let’s think about what the words “extrovert” and “introvert” actually mean.
Sometimes, they feel more comfortable holding back a bit until they feel like it’s a sure thing. Remember: Don’t excuse emotionally abusive behavior just because someone is an introvert.
So, you really have to pay attention to non-verbal signs and the way they treat you to determine whether or not they like you. Or, you’ll have to drop tons of hints to get to do it. Just like you need to be around people to re-charge your mental batteries, he needs to be alone to re-charge his mental batteries. Sometimes, there is a fine line between introverted-ness and neglectfulness, so make sure you’re with someone who has your best interests at heart – someone who will happily show you the attention you deserve if you let him know you need it. I think it’s absolutely ridiculous to postpone an unpleasant conversation for days.
