14 Ways To Handle A Christian Introvert

Being an introvert and a Christian myself, I had to reblog this. But I think even though these are our tendencies, it doesn’t mean we should stop striving to grow in some of these areas. For example, sometimes I can get fiercely selfish about my alone time. But it’s encouraging to know I’m not alone in these things. I particularly relate to 3, 6, 7, 8, 11, and most definitely 14. I’ll be the first to say I’m loud, corny, and awkward. What about you, beloveds? Any of these stand out to you?

Here’s how you handle us.

  1. That was interesting…I’m still not sure you are a true introvert. Maybe right in the middle between intro and extro, but I do believe you and that you related to at least six of his points. For me it was #4, 7, 8 (somewhat) and 12 that stood out.
    I wonder what role social media and blogging play for introverts?

    1. Good questions, Mama! I don’t think it’s the final words on who I am (my true identity is that I belong to Christ), but it does describe a lot of my natural tendencies.

  2. I agree with your Mom, I see you as a mixture of intro and extro. Loved this article and related to many of the points!
