5 Habits You Have As An Introvert

5 Habits You Have As An Introvert

We develop our own habits.


In psychology, there is a spectrum that measures a person’s extraversion, those who score low on the spectrum are called introverts. Introvert is a word used to describe people who gain more energy from being alone than with people. Basically, they need to be alone in order to recharge their batteries. I consider myself an introvert and noticed a few habits I developed because of it.

1. You get exhausted when in large crowds.

Something about the overwhelming amount of people just drains the energy right out of you. People constantly pestering you or bumping into you just isn’t something you enjoy and puts you in a bad mood.

2. You prefer quality over quantity with friends.

With large group of friends, it feels like you don’t really know who you are hanging out with. We prefer having 2-3 close friends who you can call anytime if you’re in a jam.

3. You want to stay in all the time.

Going out is just so exhausting. You have to get dressed up, find a group of people to hang out with, and when you arrive people are there. Who wants to deal with that? Give me a glass of wine and my Netflix account any day.

4. You prefer to work alone.

I had a class where the professor forced us to do at least three group assignments per class and no matter how simple the assignment we weren’t allowed to work alone. It was a nightmare for someone who spends every class trying to avoid group work.

5. Having your apartment to yourself is a dream.

Over the summer my roommate left for three weeks leaving me alone in the apartment. It was the most relaxing three weeks of my life.

These Superfood Beauty Products Show Kale And Matcha Work For SO Much More Than We Thought

Just another summer's day with a cold glass of kombucha on my face.

I've been vegan for about six years now, so a love for fresh vegetables and superfoods has now become a core part of my being. Don't get me wrong. I love my indulgent, creamy pastas and truffle fries more than anyone. But I keep most of my focus on eating clean and healthy so I can indulge guilt-free.

But I'd say about a large part of my diet has always, unknowingly, included superfoods. Being Indian, lentils, beetroot, garlic, ginger, and whole grains have been core essentials on the family dinner table since I could digest solid foods.

We Asked You How You Felt About Resuming 'Normal' Activities, And Some Of Your Answers Shocked Us

The New York Times asked 511 epidemiologists when they'd feel comfortable doing "normal" activities again, considering COVID-19. We asked our peers the same thing, for science.

Last month, the New York Times surveyed about 500 epidemiologists asking about their comfort level with certain activities once deemed normal — socializing with friends, going to the doctor, bringing in the mail. That's all well and good for the experts, but they are a very niche group, not the majority of the population. What do "normal" people feel safe doing? In certain states, we've seen how comfortable everyone is with everything (looking at you, Florida), but we wanted to know where Odyssey's readers fell on the comfort scale. Are they sticking with the epidemiologists who won't be attending a wedding for another year, or are they storming the sunny beaches as soon as possible?
