Why Introverts Hate Small Talk ... A Different Take

Why Introverts Hate Small Talk ... A Different Take | INFP | Scoop.it
We can do it, but we don't like it.
Sharilee Swaity's insight:

Introverts don't like small talk because it's not really friendly ... it doesn't ask people to really get to know each other in a genuine matter. Also, it requires no deep thought ... so it's not that comfortable for introverts, but they can do it if necessary.

Sharilee Swaity's insight:

Different personality types deal with stress differently. Very interesting, and it does make a lot of sense. We see the very best and the very worst of ourselves when we experience stress. It is not surprising that different personality types will be even more evident in times of stress. 

 

How do INFP's deal with stress? By zoning out from reality and getting very conceptual. By feeling lost and a bit spacey. Yes, sounds about right!

9 Famous People Who Proved You Don't Need To Be Loud To Make Real Noise

9 Famous People Who Proved You Don't Need To Be Loud To Make Real Noise | INFP | Scoop.it
Can the meek actually inherit the Earth? Many of the world's most revered leaders have actually been far less outgoing than their public personas would lead us to believe.
Sharilee Swaity's insight:

Interesting article that highlights nine famous people who were known to be introverts, including Johnny Depp, Johnny Carson and Audrey Hepburn.

 

In some cases, it would seem that their introversion really helped to shape who they were. For example, Johnny Depp is known for playing quirky characters. As an introvert, he takes the time to really think through his characters and their motivations. 

 

And Johnny Carson: he was such a good listener, an introvert characteristic, and that skill made him world-famous.

However, I disagree with saying that INFP's should be physicians .... Yes, they are called the "healer" but most times, I have seen healer associated with a  more spiritual, emotional interpretation, such a counsellor, rather than an actual traditional doctor.
