If you prefer reading a book as opposed to going out clubbing on a typical day, chances are you belong to the introverted percentage of individuals our society is comprised of, which is estimated to be anywhere between 25% and 40%. In other words, there are a lot more of us than one might imagine!
With that being said, sticking to the same old hobbies for years without change can quickly make things stale. Too many times, people (and introverts in particular) find themselves wondering if there’s more to the world and whether they’re missing out on things. After all, having a desire to try something new is probably the reason why you’re reading this article in the first place, is it not?
Either way, you can rest assured that you won’t be leaving empty-handed, as we’ve got plenty of ideas to share today!
Be it painting, sculpting, or making origami animals, the world of art is full of opportunities to express oneself. To avoid getting overwhelmed by sheer choice, it’s best to try something that seems appealing for you to try. Have you ever given a shot to writing a poem? It just might be the hidden talent you haven’t discovered yet. Since we live in a digital age, there is now an online course for pretty much anything you can imagine, so most things are learnable if you have the patience for it.
Playing an instrument
Music, when you get to learn it at your own pace, is one of the most rewarding experiences for an introvert to enjoy. Not only are there countless of instruments to pick from, there’s also plenty of free lessons on Youtube, so you’ll never have to wander in the dark. As for the expenses, the only noteworthy one is actually buying the instrument, but on the other hand, there’s no need to splurge right off the bat. Just visit the local music store in your area, and they’ll gladly offer you great advice on what entry-level instruments are a good fit for your needs.
Online gaming is a wonderful activity you can do from the comfort of your computer chair that also allows you to meet like-minded introverts just like yourself. Whether it’s first-person shooters, sports games, or MMO’s, you’ll never run out of people to play with, no matter the genre. There’s also the option of going with something more action-packed like an online casino. In the end, what’s better than spinning the reels a couple of times without having to meet and socialize with other people in person? Surely, any introvert would agree with this one.
