Study Shows People Who Like To Be Alone Have These 11 Unique Personality Traits

Recommended Posts

 

11. Increased Emotional Strength – People who like to be alone are able to better accept, understand and identify their emotions because they spend more time observing and evaluating their own thoughts and feelings. Because they’ve taken this extra time to understand their emotions, they have a better sense of how to deal with and manage them.

 

10. Naturally Empathetic – People who prefer to be alone are more in touch with the thoughts, feelings, and emotions of others around them, making them more empathetic. This awareness of others emotions as well as their own allows them to not only empathize but show more compassion for those around them.

 

9. A Strong Moral Compass – Another benefit to people who prefer to spend time alone is they often have a better understanding of what they consider right and wrong. Because they’ve taken the time to analyze and determine their perspectives and moral beliefs, their moral compass is more developed than those affected and shaped by the opinions of others. This definitive moral compass also makes it easier for them to make decisions and be satisfied with the decisions they make.

 

8. They Are Open Minded – Even though some people would assume introverts are more likely to be close-minded because they’re not as affected or exposed to the opinions of others, many people who prefer solitude are actually very open to new experiences and different perspectives. People who enjoy spending time alone don’t automatically have a mind closed off to the ways of the world around them; they just choose to gather a better understanding of the world in different ways that suit their personality.

 

7. They Don’t Need Peer Acceptance – Considering modern society is so influenced by the internet and social media, feeling like we’ve gained the respect of our peers can become an overwhelming need we’ll do almost anything to satisfy. Popularity and acceptance have become one of the most pressing concepts we associate with success, and this can be a harmful measure of success to live by (particularly for our mental health).

 

6. They Can Admit Their Flaws – People who prefer to be alone are more likely to be comfortable admitting their flaws and are more in-tune and okay with the fact that they’re imperfect beings. This goes back to the sense of self they gain from being comfortable with themselves and with being alone. Being able to own up to our flaws and faults is an important step towards positive personal growth.

 

5. They Prefer the Company of Other Intellectual People – Being comfortable with being alone allows many introverts to be more selective about who they choose to spend their time with. Because they don’t feel a constant or incessant need to be around many people, they value their time and can be more selective of how they choose to spend it. This is because they know that with or without the company of others, they’d be fine either way.

 

4. They Value Their Time – The reason people who enjoy being alone are more selective with the company they choose is that they value their time. People who prefer to spend time on their own understand the true value of time, an asset in our lives that many overlook or overshadow when among others. Not only do they value their own time, but they usually have more respect for the value and time of others.

 

3. Strong Sense of Intuition – People who prefer to be alone are more in-tune with their gut feelings and they trust them. Since they spend more time getting to know themselves, they are better able to understand, recognize and tap into their intuition and ultimately trust it.

 

2 .They Are Highly Loyal – Because they are more selective about who they spend their time with, people who prefer to be alone are actually more likely to be loyal to the people they enjoy being around. They still understand the value of friendship, they’re just more selective about who those friends are. But fewer friends also means it’s easier to value and stay loyal to those friends.

 

1. They Are Independent – They’ve made a more defined line of when to reach out to others for help and when to depend on themselves. This line distinguishes between connecting with others and actual dependence. Learning to face the world on their own, people who enjoy their own company don’t need people as much as they choose to have them around.

Me too. I value my time enough that when I buy things, I often look at it at how much time it too to earn that money rather than the price. Like this item cost me 10 hours of my life, lol. Although, I over observe and analyze my emotions, I don't always have the best management of them.
