13. Listening To Their Partner Is Their #1 Priority
We’ve been a little generous here, but think it’s accurate to say. When an introvert is in conversation with someone, they’re often sticking to listening and asking questions, according to Psychology Today article Revenge of the Introverts. This is great news for both their intimate and professional relationships. People love to be listened to. Knowing that someone is being heard is one of the best things you can give to a person, and usually spells out success in a relationship. Listening can help with a whole slew of problems that people typically find in their relationships. By sitting down and taking in what your partner is saying, you’re able to understand that it’s more about how they’re saying it than what they’re saying. This will allow you to ask the right questions and gauge how best to respond behavior-wise.
12. Their Partners Don’t Miss Out On Any Time With Them
You might be thinking “but introverts like to spend time alone! Doesn’t that take time away from the relationship?” The answer is… No. It doesn’t. Sophia Dembling of
Psychology Today writes, “Some solitude is important for everyone, especially introverts… For example, insist on quiet time after work if you need it, but your partner should then get your undivided attention for equal time.”
Introverts know what they need when it comes to personal time; they also know that it doesn’t always make sense to people, especially partners. By taking some time away from their partner, they’re actually able to give it back more fully later. When an introvert keeps this time meaningful, positive, and frequent, it overall feels like they’re getting more of their introvert’s time. This leads to a way better relationship in the long run!
