There are always a lot of posts about how to treat introverts and how to tell if something is bothering them. But guys, extroverts can be just as sad and have just as many issues. So here it is, an introverts guide to dealing with extroverts.
- Sure they’re showing their emotions but they might be hiding their real ones. This is especially true the louder they get.
- Extroverts need and enjoy casual touch. When they’re feeling down they will be very touchy-feely but there’s nothing better to them than you noticing how they’re feeling and offering a hug voluntarily.
- No extrovert wants to feel like the person they’re hugging doesn’t want the hug. If you don’t want to be hugged please say so. This goes for all contact.
- If you want to be alone just ask. Usually the extrovert knows you’re upset and is trying to make you feel better by doing what would make them feel better.
- Dealing with introverts is actually kind of terrifying to a lot of extroverts because of the lack of response and the knowledge that it’s very likely the introvert is annoyed by their presence. This usually results in more talking in order to fill anything that feels like an awkward silence.
- Extroverts really want people to approach them. Always being the one to approach friends or to invite people to things begins to feel really sucky after a while. One sided friendships aren’t fun and the extrovert will start feeling like a burden and cease inviting you to things and hanging out with you.
- Don’t let extroverts talk too much. Most enjoy listening to your stories and commenting just as much as telling their own.
