It seems like every other celebrity is having a hard time these days. From Taylor Swift to Kristen Stewart, it seems like they’re all struggling with being introverted. What’s behind this trend? Is it because people are jealous of their fame? Is it a case of too much fame too soon? Who knows, but it’s certainly an interesting phenomena.
The Pros And Cons Of Being Introverted
Introverted people are known for being reserved and quiet. They don’t always want to talk to people they don’t know, preferring instead to stay inside with a book or TV show. They aren’t always best at dealing with issues or confrontations directly, and can sometimes struggle with maintaining friendships.
On the other hand, introverts are known for being efficient. They’re able to get a lot of work done in a short amount of time, and can sometimes be accused of being calculating. They may also be seen as having high standards, wanting things to be done a certain way and preferring to wait for others to catch up. Ultimately, they can be seen as ambitious and driven.
While there are pros and cons to being an introvert, it’s generally considered a positive trait. People with high levels of extroversion are often surprised to hear that most celebrities are in fact, introverts. It seems like they’d be more comfortable being around lots of people, having more friends and getting more engagement. But that’s not the case. Being an introvert is often seen as a sign of intellect and professionalism.
Why Is Being Introverted Bad?
While there’s a lot to praise about introverts, there are some things that can be improved upon. One of the biggest is that introverts can be quite passive-aggressive. They don’t always want to appear that they’re being rude or quiet out of spite, but they also aren’t always quick to engage with others either. When discussing politics or religion, for example, they may be uncomfortable, feeling that they don’t have all the information they need. In an attempt to be agreeable, they may even admit that they’re not sure about what’s being said, which can lead to further problems.
Another issue is that, due to their reserved nature, introverts can sometimes struggle with expressing their feelings. They may not always want to talk about their problems, preferring instead to just get on with their lives. This can make them appear cold or uncaring, even though that’s not usually the case. They may even avoid talking about certain subjects because they know it’ll upset others.
Being introverted can also put a damper on social activities. While some people prefer their home life to be private and don’t want to mix with the general public, introverts may feel that they have to hide themselves away if they want to maintain a good social life. This can make them feel like an outsider and can cause them to feel bad about themselves.
The Rise In Popularity Of The Introvert
In today’s world, celebrity is measured in many ways. We look at the bank account of a celebrity to see how much money they have, we check their social media to see how engaged they are, and we may even ask someone we know personally to weigh in. But one of the ways in which we measure a celebrity’s popularity is by looking at how many people are talking about them online. In years past, celebrity was rarely achieved through social media. People sought out celebrities, hoping to become famous themselves. Those days are gone, as social media has given birth to the ‘self-made celebrity’.
In today’s world, everyone has a voice and everyone has a camera. If you look at some of the biggest names in pop culture, you’ll notice that they don’t necessarily fit the traditional ‘celebrity’ mold. In fact, you might be surprised to learn that many of them are actually quite shy and keep to themselves. While we might see them on the red carpet, they don’t always want to be there and don’t necessarily want to engage with the general public. They may even feel that they don’t deserve to be among the ‘famous’ because they didn’t choose their career, but it was more or less thrust upon them.
Today, we’re seeing a trend where famous people are coming out of the woodwork and letting the public know that they’re actually quite introverted. As a result, we’re seeing a rise in popularity for the introvert. People are starting to see value in being unshowy and keeping to themselves. Seeing as how social media is such a large part of our culture and our lives, it’s no wonder that many famous people would rather stay out of the limelight.
The Difference In Expectations
In generations past, being a celebrity meant appearing in public and greeting adoring fans. You’d get your picture taken, sign autographs, and do as many interviews as possible. That’s not the case anymore. Being a celebrity today means using social media to keep in touch with your audience, and to give them content that they’ll remember you by. While we might see celebrities holding hands with a spouse or carrying a child in arms, these days it’s all about the photos.
So, while we might see a lot of hand holding and picture taking on the red carpet, these days it’s a lot more about the photos. It’s all about the self-made celebrity and how they choose to represent themselves to the world.
In today’s world, being an introvert can be highly beneficial. It can keep you private, away from the prying eyes of the general public. And who knows – maybe one day, you’ll even find respect for being the way you are.
