25 Tweets That Are Perfect For People Who Don’t Like People

Sure, we are all people but that doesn’t mean we like people. After all, people can be quite annoying. They want to talk, a lot… and that is exhausting, especially when they are sitting there waiting for your response and you haven’t been listening.

They also want to hang out a lot. Word from the wise: just because I hang out with you once doesn’t mean I want to hang out all the time, or with all of your other friends.

Then there’s the drama people – which sometimes you can spot from a mile away, but other times they sneak up on you. Tricking you into thinking they are laid back before BAM hitting you with the dramatic nonsense you work so hard to avoid.

Does the very thought of coming up with excuses to avoid social events tire you out? Does the sound of your phone ringing induce panic? Would you rather spend your day surrounded by dogs and cats instead of humans?

If yes, the following tweets will resonate with your soul.

1.

Researchers estimate that as much as 50% of the population identifies as an introvert. While extroverts get energy from being around other people, introverts get energy from alone time.

People who aren’t big “people-people” generally fall somewhere on the introvert scale. That’s because they don’t get energy from being around others, instead other people drain their energy.

2.

You certainly can’t lump all introverts into the same category as there are many different levels of this common personality trait.

There are talkative introverts and introverts who prefer to keep quiet.

Some introverts can’t stand any human interaction, while others crave some human contact in short doses.

3.

Researchers have discovered that the brains of introverts and extroverts are wired differently.

During solitary activities, the front part of an introvert’s brain is more active, while extroverts show more activity in the back part of their brain.

4.

 

Whenever you experience something positive, your brain releases dopamine – a feel good chemical.

This built-in reward system keeps us seeking out positive experiences. Interestingly, extroverts require more dopamine to feel good, while introverts have a lower dopamine threshold.

5.

Being shy is not the same thing as being introverted. Shy people may crave social interaction but avoid it for fear of rejection or criticism.

That doesn’t mean introverts can’t be shy, but they are considered two different personality traits.

Clearly, if you can relate to these tweets, you are likely an introvert. Some other signs you fall on the introvert scale include:

  • You love spending time all by yourself
  • Inspiration hits you hardest, along with your best ideas, when you are hanging out alone
  • You are a great leader – it’s true, introverts make some of the best leaders!
  • You are the last person to raise your hand (even if you know the answer or have a question) in school or other social settings
  • Sporting headphones in public is your go-to
  • You avoid people who appear angry or upset
  • Small talk is your worst nightmare

There are so many advantages to being an introvert, so embrace it!

For one, you’re less likely to get bored than someone who requires constant social stimulation. You’ll also save some money hanging out at home instead of at bars and other money-sucking hot spots.

Researcher Jonathan Cheek explains there are four different types of introverts.

To come to this conclusion, he interviewed 500 self-proclaimed introverts between the ages of 18 and 70. He asked them things like how much alone time they need and how often they daydream.

After gathering all of his data, Cheek created a model for the four different types of introverts. Cleverly, the four different types spell out the acronym STAR (Social, Thinking, Anxious, and Restrained).

9.

Social: people who prefer small groups over big groups and hanging out with close friends instead of going to a party. Some social introverts prefer no social interactions at all. They love staying home with a good book or an art project.

Thinking: people who are thoughtful, self-reflective, and introspective. They aren’t as inclined to stay away from crowded social scenes. Although, they do prefer to avoid daydreamers and people with large imaginations.

Anxious: introverts who prefer to be alone because they often feel anxiety and are self-conscious. They experience painful shyness around people they don’t know. The anxiety often persists when they are alone because they overthink things that have happened.

Restrained: introverts who like to take life a little slower, thinking things over before they speak out or act. They are often seen as reserved and don’t let impulse impact their decision-making.
