10 Things Introverts Are Best At Doing 

Are you interested in the things introverts are best at doing?

Introverts are good at a lot more than being quiet and avoiding large social gatherings.

They tend to have a lot of skill sets, and most of them aren’t even aware they have these talents because awesomeness just comes naturally to them.

Let’s take a look at the top 10 things they do exceptionally well.

1. Taking care of animals

Introverts aren’t just good pet owners, they’re great pet owners. Even though they don’t show such care to all humans, introverts are highly sensitive to the needs and emotions of both animals and humans.

If they used up all their empathy on all humans, there’d be nothing left.

Animals are simpler and don’t abuse their kindness, and introverts know that. Animals know who they can trust, so it’s a beautiful relationship.

Many introverts prefer the company of animals over humans anyway.

You may notice that an introvert you know has multiple pets. Perhaps your pets that are otherwise sketchy around most people just love the introvert.

2. Being wise and thoughtful

Most introverts spend a lot of time learning and doing research. They learn why things are the way they are.

Introverts feel the need to study and understand everything, and this applies to humans as well.

Don’t let their quiet demeanor fool you. They can give some of the greatest advice on relationships, friendships, work relationships and more.

Since they’re deep thinkers, they think of all the “what-if” scenarios for everything. They’re not arrogant though, and they’ll flat-out tell you if they don’t know the answer to something.

3. Listening to others

Introverts don’t just listen – they also remember. If you’ve never had a deep conversation or talked about serious troubles with an introvert before, you may get the idea that they don’t care about what you’re saying.

If you’re talking about trivial things, you’re right. Those things bore them quickly. Introverts prefer thought-provoking, honest and deep conversations.

Introverts aren’t chatterboxes, but they’ll certainly give feedback after they listen if you ask for it.

When you talk about life’s woes, you won’t get fake sympathy either. Introverts are very empathetic.

4. Working diligently and honestly

Introverts are excellent self-starters. Since they like to learn, research and succeed, they’re some of the greatest independent workers.

Those qualities make them excellent leaders too, but they also tend to be good followers since they follow instructions.

Even if they do better on their own, they tend to keep the peace with coworkers. You won’t find introverts picking fights or idly gossiping in the breakroom.

They get a great sense of satisfaction from accomplishments and doing thorough, honest work. When they set their mind on doing something, even if it’s a lofty goal, they won’t rest until they succeed.

5. Being surprisingly excellent conversationalists

Ok, but it’s important to note that they’re great conversationalists if you’re a valued friend, family member, coworker or love interest. If you’re not, don’t expect much conversation.

Remember, they prefer deeper and substantive subjects. Smalltalk isn’t their cup of tea.

If you’re looking for a good friend you can call to have long, intellectual conversations with, start having meaningful discussions with an introvert.

It’ll take time to earn their trust, but you’re more interesting to an introvert if you don’t steer toward trivial chatter.

Once you get to know the individual and gain their trust, you’ll never again be able to say you don’t have any friends who aren’t good conversationalists.

6. Staying focused

Introverts stay 100% focused on anything they’re trying to accomplish or something they’re truly interested in. This is why many of them tend to excel in school.

While others get bored with tedious subjects or tasks that are highly challenging, introverts feel energized by them. They love a challenge.

If you ever need help with something challenging, your introvert friend will probably help and stick with it. This ability to focus also means that they tend to be very dedicated friends and partners.

7. Being very independent

One of the reasons they’re independent is because they value their solitude. They don’t need others around them to feel safe. They still love their friends and family, but make no mistake about it – they can take care of themselves.

Since they tend to be intellectual, study a lot and learn a lot, they’re usually very self-sufficient.

Introverts can often survive health setbacks, layoffs or other challenges life throws at them with their resourcefulness.

They view their freedom and independence as empowering. So, if you want to keep an introvert in your life, just be careful about how you offer help.

Introverts may accept help from time to time when they really need it, but if anyone gets pushy trying to help them or getting involved, they can start retreating pretty fast.

Their freedom is like blood – they need it to survive.

8. Understanding their own feelings

Many introverts will express at least some of their needs and feelings once you get to know them well. They may share some of their deep thoughts with people they know they can trust.

Introverts are good at viewing situations and people objectively, so they’re also big on analyzing themselves. They do their own inward searching to find out why they feel or think the way they do.

Since many introverts tend to express themselves better in writing, you can learn a lot about them by texting, emailing or even writing letters if they love good, old-fashioned snail mail.

9. Being highly efficient

Introverts aren’t what you’d call high-maintenance people. They don’t need to spend $100 to go to the movies and buy expensive snacks.

They’re completely happy to stay at home and watch a free movie they found with some cheap candy from the dollar store.

Since they like to research and learn, they tend to find ways to save money.

They may still have an expensive hobby or two that they’re passionate about, but many manage most of their time and money efficiently.

10. Being good at persuasion

If you’re a manager in retail or sales, take note – introverts are some of the best candidates to train for sales. They have natural traits and abilities that make them good at persuasion.

They’re thinkers, researchers and learners. They can pick up on others’ emotions and nonverbal cues, so they can anticipate how to talk to people.

Also, they learn about what they’re talking about and know how to present it.

Introverts are highly cognitive, and they become efficient and comfortable when they’re familiar with something.

Whether you need a persuasive friend, employee or partner, an introvert is your best bet for all of the above.

There you have it! Introverts are good at plenty of other things as well.

If you know an introvert, be sure to encourage the person to keep building and using their personal talents. Even though they’re objective about others, many of them are hard on themselves.
