According to a new study, there are 4 types of introverts – social, thinking, anxious, and abstaining. Every kind of introvert has its own superpower, a quality that makes its drawbacks the most significant asset…
See what the 4 types of introverts are and what super powers they possess.
Introverts are more closed people by nature. Although they are susceptible, they rarely show their emotions to others. On a side, they may appear tense, stifled, unwilling to communicate, but as in every person, it’s never that simple.
Until recently, the introverts were a whole separate group, but a few months ago, a new categorization of introverts appeared. It was done by Professor of Psychology Jonathan Cheek. According to him, there are 4 types of them. Each kind is unique in its essence and holds its secret “superpower.”
#1. Social introvert
Social introverts are closest to what we have so far recognized in the term. They prefer to spend time in small groups instead of large companies. They love to be alone, and this is a way for them to reload. They prefer to have few but trusted friends and relatives than many acquaintances. They don’t trust strangers, communicating with new people overstrains them.

#2. Thinking introvert
They are creative. Although they do not fancy it, they often show new ways, different ways, and alternative solutions. When in a group, the thinking introverts are calm, waiting for their order to come. They do not try to impose their opinion or dominate above the other people in any way. Thinking introverts help others find the solution to a problem by supporting them quietly and without interfering.

#3. Anxious introvert
Anxious introverts are shy. They often avoid public places because of many people tense and oppress them. Anxious introverts tend to focus on what might go wrong. And that’s why; often, anxious introverts have a plan – for every situation. Because of their anxiety, they have learned to be self-sufficient and rarely seek help or even advice from someone.

#4. Restrained introvert
Restrained introverts like to think about the situation before deciding what to do. Sometimes they look slow, incompetent or cowardly, but they are just not in a hurry to make a decision. These kinds of people like to stop for a second and look at the situation on the side, pay attention to the whole picture without leaving the details to distract them. Emotions are not allowed to control them; instead, relying on facts helps them to decide. Restrained introverts are those who are the voice of reason and tranquility in the tensest situations.
