Most people seems not to understand the personality features and behavior patterns of introverts. They are described with adjectives that either misrepresent them or are derogatory to their person.

They are usually their own best friend. Unfortunately, because of their unique trait they have been described with Adjectives such as anti-social, asocial, shy, paranoid, snobbish etc. this is not true. They are introverts and cannot pretend to be extroverts.

Nevertheless, they don’t hesitate to speak out when important matters are been discussed.
