Introverts vs. Socializing: Three times Introverts actually enjoy parties
If you still think introverts and parties are two entirely incompatible things, think again.
These intriguing individuals may be quiet, but they too find joy in being included in social gatherings sometimes.
In fact, they can contribute tremendously to organizing a party you will never forget and giving the guests a fantastic experience.
Well, they might do it from behind the scenes, but we all know that’s where the magic happens.
Still not convinced? Then check out these three cases introverts would love to go to a party:
1. They are great at planning.
Introverts may not be the life of the party but when it comes to planning it, they are usually doing a fabulous job. So, next time you need someone to help you out with organizing a gathering, coordinating different activities, or decorating the place, turn to your introverted friend. Their unique ideas and habit of thinking things through will help you arrange an unforgettable night.
2. They can help behind the scenes.
Instead of forcing an introvert to mingle and talk with random people about the weather, let them help you with some behind-the-scenes actions. For instance, you can ask them to give you a hand in the kitchen, help you with decorating the place, or be in the role of a DJ for the night. This way they won’t have to cringe at having small talks with people they are not close to. More importantly, they will feel included without being pressured to socialize.
3. They love it when they find a like-minded soul for a meaningful conversation.
At parties, there is nothing more comforting than finding someone you can talk to about anything and everything, especially for an introvert. Engaging in a deep, thought-provoking, compelling conversation with someone is so rare. And when it happens at a time and place where typically the extroverted ones get to shine, it becomes even more special.
So, the answer is YES – Introverts do enjoy parties sometimes.
However, they also need to take time to recharge after a night of socializing, so don’t worry if you don’t see them the next few days after. And no, it is not because they hate other people. They simply need more time to reconnect with themselves and relax their minds after being put under the pressure of conversation with many other individuals at once.
If you are an extrovert, you might not entirely understand it. But if you have an introverted friend, or you are an introvert yourself, then you are perfectly aware of the need to be on your own for a while following a night out.
