Top 10 Myths About Introverts, According To An Introvert – Do You Agree With Them?

Introverts go to extreme lengths when avoiding people but Carl King wants to remind us that there’s more than meets the eye. “The problem is that labeling someone as an Introvert is a very shallow assessment,” he wrote. According to the composer and filmmaker, it’s more complex than that.

To explain his point, King has compiled a series of the top myths about introverts. He wrote the list after discovering a book called, The Introvert Advantage: How to Thrive in an Extrovert World, by Marti Laney, Psy.D. “It felt like someone had written an encyclopedia entry on a rare race of people to which I belong. Not only had it explained many of my eccentricities, it helped me to redefine my entire life in a new and productive context.”

“A section of Laney’s book maps out the human brain and explains how neuro-transmitters follow different dominant paths in the nervous systems of Introverts and Extroverts,” King added. “If the science behind the book is correct, it turns out that Introverts are people who are over-sensitive to Dopamine, so too much external stimulation overdoses and exhausts them. Conversely, Extroverts can’t get enough Dopamine, and they require Adrenaline for their brains to create it. Extroverts also have a shorter pathway and less blood-flow to the brain. The messages of an Extrovert’s nervous system mostly bypass the Broca’s area in the frontal lobe, which is where a large portion of contemplation takes place.”

The book states that only about 25% of people are Introverts. “There are even fewer that are as extreme as I am. This leads to a lot of misunderstandings.”
