Have you ever wondered what it is like being an introvert? Are you an introvert yourself and struggle for people to understand you? Well, there’s a day dedicated to introversion; World Introvert Day!
In a world where extroversion is the dominant force that plays in the spotlight, introversion takes place behind the scenes. As a result, being an introvert doesn’t mean that you can’t function in society, and so World Introvert Day is a dedicated holiday to proving people just that fact.
History of World Introvert Day
World Introvert Day has been celebrated by introverts across the globe since 2011. Although World Introvert Day is not an official holiday, it is believed to have been started when Felicitas Heyne published a blog post on ipersonic.com, calling for a day where introversion is an aspect of humanity to be celebrated and understood.
Introvertday.org is a web page dedicated to this day as a result, and thus cooperates with various organizations each year to produce fundraisers. According to Heyne, the date of this holiday is aimed to help introverts recharge after the strenuous activities of the Christmas and New Year holidays.
World Introvert Day is about bringing awareness about the inward-focused world of introverts, and that their actions and habits don’t make them less normal. Many studies have shown that introverts, despite their habits are an important minority that work behind the scenes of an extroverted world to keep it functioning.
So, each year, many introverts take this time to recharge by doing their favorite hobbies after the exciting events of the major holidays and prepare themselves for the year to come. There are many blog sites that focus their audience on the aspects of introversion, and even celebrate it, and so World Introvert Day is a huge highlight in observing the world of introverts.
