INTROVERTS

Pic by Joseph(Bro-in-law)

Misunderstood, misjudged, misinterpreted;
emotional, sensitive, easily overwhelmed.
Often perceived as arrogant,
self-centered and distant.
Hate’s confrontation;
finds solace in art, be it of any form.
Love living life in their imaginations,
where they create a world
filled with endless possibilities.
Laugh the loudest when hurt the most,
their emotions they hide like a thief.
Might seem detached,
always lost in their own thoughts;
although quite the jabber
once you know them.
Don’t be deceived by the mask they wear,
they seem to be as hard as a coconut shell outside,
but are soft and sweet inside.

Dear introverts out there, this poem is dedicated to us all. πŸ’–

#I am a little bit of all the 4 types of introvert, “Social, thinking, anxious and restrained or inhibited introvert.” Which type of introvert are you? I you still haven’t figured it out watch the video down below to find out which introvert you are. πŸ‘‡

  1. I’m an INFP introvert, according to the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (extremely introverted). Your poem resonates so well with me, almost as if it was written with me in mind. You’re a wonderful writer, Daphny, and your words are deep and meaningful. Well done! πŸ™‚

    1. According to that I am an INFJ-T introvert(some people brings out the extrovert in me). 😁

      1. Some people don’t really shine the way they deserve to as it gets hard for them. Extroverts feels easier to blend in and shine while for introverts it becomes an issue.

  2. Finally!! Thank you for this, Daph. Now I know that I am a restrained introvert, hah. I could resonate with most of the aspects in the poem and then the video too made them clear by putting them in categories. What an amazing post! This is just why I always miss your posts. They are really very helpful, dear. Thanks for returning joy and marveling onto our faces with this charming piece.

      3. Why not? It’s very good as it is. I could feel every word of it. You’re a great poet who knows the evocative use of words, and it’s nothing to turn a blind eye to. Keep writing, dear. πŸ˜„πŸ˜Šβ€β€

      4. Given the title of the poem I feel the need to make it perfect and when you look for perfection you start doubting yourself a lot. πŸ˜…
        Thank you for your kind words that makes it all better. πŸ₯°πŸ’–

      5. The title’s just perfect because that’s what the poem’s about. Look at this: “Love living life in their imaginations,
        where they create a world
        filled with endless possibilities.” That cleverly rolls it up into a beautiful thought about who we are. πŸ‘ Plausible!!! β€πŸ’•β€

  3. Brilliant poetry, this one! Could relate to you on a spiritual level. Introverts are so misinterpreted due to the mystery surrounding them (us?). I’m all 4 types of introvert as well.
    Absotlely splendidly written. What an amazing pic! πŸ˜ƒ So creative! πŸ’–

  4. A beautiful tribute, dear Daphny. Though I perform often as extroverted, I am deeply introverted and have a large inner life. This is the paradox of these styles. One may seem one style, yet also possess others, as you write. As a child I was often labeled as sensitive and shy, which became an embarrassment for me. Today, I embrace my sensitivity as it is a true gift. Love this poem and post. πŸ’–πŸ’–πŸ’–

  5. I’m an INFJ introvert and I love your caption saying that ‘what you can’t say, write it louder’. It’s exactly accurate for an introvert teen like me. Thank you Daphny for reminding me that I am not alone.

  6. I am an introvert so the inner workings of this poem connect and touch me! I love how the outer shell of outside perception gives the inner thought a sheltered place of sorts to be nurtured and grow. πŸ™‚

  7. I am a social introvert. I don’t like to talk or chat too much. I answer briefly. I like my own company. I sit alone and do something creative from the heart. Thank you for sharing this post. I understood something about meπŸ™‚
