Self-Study: Lone Wolf Introverts
Lone Wolf Introverts
Answering your questions.
Today I had a question from a student of mine in the UK.
She said, “Colleen, I know you’ve called yourself a lone wolf. I feel like that too. How is that for you?”
I said I’ve been like this my whole life.
I’ve always been an outsider.
I’ve always been a loner.
It’s pretty much my nature.
I can be extroverted with people I know, but generally, I’m very, very quiet.
I enjoy my own company.
Many introverted people often feel like something is wrong with them, mainly because marketing and advertising have PUSHED bold extroversion for a long time.
Introverts are often behind the scenes type of people.
The deep, deep thinkers.
The analysers, designers and architects of the world.
People who get on with things quietly.
I did my Myers Briggs recently, and 3 results came back.
I’m generally not a personality test type of person, but it can provide a certain amount of Insight.
Perhaps not EVERY ASPECT of a human being, but to a certain degree, mine is accurate.
♦️Deep thinker personality.
♦️Analytical, logical, rational person
♦️Mediator (COMMON GROUND)
And I’m creative.
So for me, lone wolf category doesn’t bother me AT ALL.
I’m always thinking about something or analysing something to death, or creating something, or doing something or researching something.
I’ve ALWAYS been this way.
Does this sound familiar to you?
Just remember….you DO NOT have to FIT INTO ANY PARTICULAR CULTURE BOX or be like everyone else!!
So that’s my answer to that ❤
If you’d like to do your Myers Briggs, you’ll find it here.
Yes.. I have been told MANY TIMES to stop overthinking. I often get criticism for this.
As far as I’m concerned, a woman who can analyse, THINK for herself & make an educated decision is a great strength and asset to have.
I used this analytical skill to do clinical research in NHS hospitals.
And I used this analytical skill to make chemotherapy.
It’s an instrumental skill to have.
I often get told I need to “get out there” and socialise more.
Honestly….at this stage of my Life, I’m perfectly comfortable with criticism.
I’ve heard just about every line in the book, movie and tv show.
It’s something that rolls off me like water off a ducks back now.
Ultimately that’s all part of earning our Wings.
I am comfortable in my skin.
Hugs as always
P.P.S I read this on INTP females and laughed out loud (many times).
I will say as I’ve grown into myself and matured more into my 40’s, I now really enjoy cleaning my house and taking care of my home.
WELL ROUNDED PEOPLE EARN THEIR WINGS
