100 Best Introvert Quotes We Can Relate To.

Introverts are like an undiscovered treasure. Unlike extroverts, introverts hardly get along or open up to everyone, but this doesn’t mean they are not people with great mindsets. These introvert quotes will convince you!

It will be hard to know what’s going on in their heart; they select the kind of friends they keep, and that’s the only set of people they move and vibe with. If you feel bothered about yourself being an introvert, we’ve gathered introvert quotes, which will correct the wrong perception about yourself. 

Being an introvert doesn’t mean you aren’t competent or you can’t be positioned in some places in society. Introverts are wonderful people, they don’t talk much, yet they are people with large hearts. 

Introverts are wise people, and they hardly talk even when they are hurt; there are four types of introverts, which include: 

  • Anxious
  • Restrained
  • Social
  • Thinking

Social introverts: These people are basically shy and timid; they hardly go out and only have a few selected people as friends. 

Thinking Introverts: This set of introverts doesn’t get concerned with the presence of people around them; they have high societal skills. However, they think a lot, they delight pleasure when being alone and lost in thought, probably after reading a book or watching a movie, always pensive and introspective. 

Anxious introverts: Contrary to societal introverts, anxious introverts run into hiding once they notice the presence of unfamiliar people, as they feel unconfident enough to dialogue or roll with them.

Restrained introverts: Restrained introverts are a “think before you speak” set of people. They won’t respond to your question immediately, as they would love to have a deep thought before answering.
