The Introvert is someone who prefers calm, minimally stimulating environments. They tend to feel drained after socializing and regain their energy by spending time alone. … In other words, if you’re an introvert, you were likely born that way.
The world is composed of different phenomenal people. Some are expressive, some are a good listener, some are extroverts and others are introvert. Amid the 7.5 billion people all around the world, 25-30 per cent are introverts. Today on the occasion of World’s Introvert Day here is the list of famous and successful introverts from all around the world.
1. Mahatma Gandhi:
The lean person with no outlook attraction who brought independence to India once said: “You can shake the world with a gentle push.” He’s the idol of non-violence. He was very selective while talking or confronting people. Which proves he was introvert who never shared his all thoughts with people.
2. Albert Einstein:
As one of the world’s most recognized and revered physicists, Einstein has often been quoted as saying, “The monotony and solitude of a quiet life stimulate the creative mind.” Einstein received the Nobel Prize for Physics in 1921 and is best remembered for developing the theory of relativity.
3. Bill Gates
The founder of Microsoft, philanthropist, and the world’s richest person, was once asked how to succeed in a predominantly extroverted world.
“Well, I think introverts can do quite well. If you’re clever you can learn to get the benefits of being an introvert, which might be, say, being willing to go off for a few days and think about a tough problem, read everything you can, push yourself very hard to think out on the edge of that area. Then, if you come up with something, if you want to hire people, get them excited, build a company around that idea, you better learn what extroverts do, you better hire some extroverts (like Steve Ballmer I would claim as an extrovert) and tap into both sets of skills in order to have a company that thrives both in deep thinking and building teams and going out into the world to sell those ideas.”
4. Barak Obama:
Former President of America! He may seem all very confident and stunning while addressing the congress, kicking the door out while exiting the stage and ending his speech by awesomely saying ‘I just want to say two more words, Obama out’. But he’s a person who doesn’t like to be disturbed when deep thoughts are taking over him!
5. Mark Zukerberg:
He took the world by a storm when he invented Facebook and changed all of our lives forever. We cannot even imagine our lives without Facebook anymore. Hell, it’s even counted as an addiction! This kind of awesome thoughts that lead to a revolution can only emerge when you’re really focused and have no distractions. No wonder he’s hardly caught by the cameras!
6. J K Rowling:
Introverts are often their most creative when left alone. J.K. Rowling is a great example of this – it’s well-known that she dreamt up Harry Potter when taking a solo train trip. Plus, her pen wouldn’t work, but she was too shy to ask a stranger to borrow one, opting to compose the story in her head.
7. Elon Musk:
Once Elon Musk explained his commercial of showmanship in an interview saying “I’m basically like an introverted engineer, so, it took a lot of practice and effort to be able to go up on stage and not just stammer basically…As the CEO, you kind of has to.”
8. Abraham Lincoln:
Abraham lincoln the best example of ‘Fall seven times, stand up eight.’ Susan Cane described in her book ‘Quiet: The Power of Introverts In A World That Can’t Stop Talking’, states that it was easier for people to be successful as introverts earlier in history as people saw integrity and good deeds as high value, which was what Lincoln was well-known for.
9. Steve Wozniak:
The Apple co-founder described his creative process in his book iWoz as follows:
“I’m going to give you some advice that might be hard to take.
That advice is: Work alone. Not on a committee. Not on a team.”
10. Emma Watson:
Ok, we all really gotta admit that every one of us has a crush on this babe! The extremely cute and beautiful Emma Watson is an alone person and doesn’t like much exposure to the outside world. She stays in her world and she chooses to keep it that way.
