6 misleading assumptions you make about quiet people

Jul!a Jul!a
"People out there have a lot of funny ideas about quiet people, the worst one being that all quiet people are alike. There are about 10 million reasons why someone might not talk very much, running the gamut from being shy, to hating you, to having sold their voice to a witch in return for legs.

People who don't recognize this come up with their own ridiculous assumptions about what quiet people are up to. Even quiet people themselves are guilty of assigning their own traits to all other quiet people in the world.

Here's a few of those assumptions."

6 Misleading Assumptions You Make About Quiet People

You know, I never really thought about it before, but after reading this, I realized I'm just a wee bit guilty of some of these. I can't change the past, but I can do my best to change how I handle situations in the future!

I was guilty of most of those thing when I met the wife, she was VERY quiet, still is as a matter of fact. I learned pretty quick not to assume.

We are also not stuck up, not a bitch or not mental. But anyways, I have come across every one of those! I don't get it, if I can't think of anything to say or in a quiet mood it doesn't usually pertain to the ones around me.

I think I'm a quiet person. I prefer to guage people, and my surroundings, before jumping into the conversation, and so people often think I'm shy. I think I've had each of these assumed about me, at least once.

Though only number 1 is true .

And this is where I feel like I have a split-personality. If I'm in a room with a bunch of people I've never met, I hang back and just soak up the conversation styles and try to gleen what people are interested in before I jump into the conversation. Being raised in the South probably has a lot to do with this because interlopers are seriously frowned upon and anyone just jumping into the conversation is automatically an interloper. But, if I know you or you're related to me, I'm boisterous and loud and sarcastic and I throw innuendo around like nobody's business. I tend to say things deadpan or keep a relaxed face like the example in the article. If I had a dollar for every time someone asked me what was wrong when I was just sitting there being perfectly fine, I'd be rich.
