If I told you that, according to the Briggs Meyer personality type that I’m an INFJ, what would you say? I’ve taken other tests that are similar to the Briggs Meyer but no matter what? My beginning letter is always an I. Yes, I am an introvert. Or at least have more introvert tendencies than I do extrovert. Maybe that’s why this particular career path has worked out for me. If you are also an introvert, or have an introvert in your life, here are a few informative, insightful, and thoughtful book gift ideas for introverts.
Honestly, I think coloring books would make for an ideal gift as well. But, as an introvert and in general, one of my favorite past times is reading. I don’t get to do it quite as much now but I’m going to make it an intentional part of my day going forward. I prefer non-fiction to fiction so a lot of these books are along those lines.
What is an Introvert?
If you were to look up the definition of introvert or introversion you would find a definition similar to this: Introversion is the action of directing one’s own interests towards their own thoughts and feelings as opposed to projecting this into the world.
Those who are introverted get their energy and excitement from who they are internally and thus get replenished through periods of just being alone. While they are great listeners, informed decision makers, and can maintain attention, they are known to only have a small close circle of friends.
There are two types of introverts; those that are self sufficient, diligent, yet distant, and those who have trouble communicating and are very shy. In both instances, being alone is preferred as it restores their energy.
