Being a shy person is totally okay, here’s why..

An antisocial person, is a person who is undesirable of the company of others or who doesn’t get socialized with others. But being an “introvert” doesn’t meant you are totally antisocial. These two are relatable statements but still have a kind of intermediate difference. There are many misconceptions about introverts, like that they’re antisocial, unfriendly, shy or lonely. But in many cases, being an introvert can actually be an asset. Introverts are people who get their energy from spending time alone.

But keeping true to your non-sociable directions can be very beneficial for you. Ultimately, your perceived rareness will be the best contributing factor to preserving your well-being. Anti social or being introverted may be better than extroverted behavior at observing and understanding the social behavior of people in group settings, a skill that is useful in knowing how to effectively lead others.


Four introverted yet subtle habits, antisocial people develop

They are better listeners

Good listening skills are an asset for maintaining friendships and relationships, since they help us slow down and not say things we might later regret — and also benefit our friends and partners with a much-appreciated empathetic ear. They are naturally more sympathetic and mesmerising in taking in information than proclaiming it. This is why people often confide in introverts, and why they are so good at keeping secrets. Because of their private nature, many introverts inherently understand how difficult it is to open up and trust people, so they may work even harder to be trustworthy themselves.introverts are more receptive to taking in what another person is telling them, and they also may be more equipped to pick up subtleties in conversation.

They are compassionate

They are compassionate.
Honest self-reflection, usually borne out of solitude, helps us to extend compassion and forgiveness to others because we know their struggles and inner contradictions. Compassion improves your health by strengthening your immune system, normalising your blood pressure, lowering your stress and depression, improving your physical recovery from illness, and even extending your life. Compassion enables you to understand yourself and others more as you seek to relieve suffering.Compassion and empathy are fundamental aspects of quality relationships as they enable kind and loving behavior.

They are self aware

Spending more time with yourself allows you to reflect on who you are as a person and understand your own behaviors, thoughts, and feelings. We are then empowered to make changes and to build on our areas of strength as well as identify areas where we would like to make improvements. Feist believes that those who prefer solitude “are trying to make sense of their internal world and a lot of internal personal experiences.” Self-awareness is a critical tool to help you reach higher levels of job satisfaction, become a better leader, improve relationships with colleagues, and manage your emotions better. It’s also positively correlated with higher levels of overall happiness.


Antisocial personality disorder (APD)

People with antisocial personality disorder (ASPD) can be witty, charming, and fun to be around — but they also lie and exploit others. ASPD makes people uncaring. Someone with the disorder may act rashly, destructively, and unsafely without feeling guilty when their actions hurt other people, according to webmd.com . Antisocial personality disorder affects more men than women. 

People with ASPD may often do the following;

Lie, con, and exploit others

Act rashly

Be irritable and aggressive

Fight or assault other people

Break the law

Not show signs of remorse after hurting someone else


Not care about the safety of others or themselves

Fail to meet money, work, or social duties

Abuse drugs or alcohol

Prevention

It is conceivable that a general improvement in social conditions could reduce the incidence of antisocial personality disorder. An improvement in a person’s social environment may reduce the severity of the problem, especially if changes are made early in life.
