Song Lyrics that Speak to my Introverted Nature

Introvert song lyrics.

I’ve written about how music and introverts are intimately connected, but I thought it might be fun to share some of my favorite song lyrics that I’ve grown to love over the (many, many) years that understand the introvert in me. What makes these song lyrics special is that not only can I relate to them, but they speak directly to my introverted soul. Some lyrics are light and hopeful, some are nostalgic, and others allowed me to sit in my dark place when I needed to, but all are me, in the most genuine and profound way. Lyrics that […]

How Music and Introverts are Intimately Connected

How introverts need to be connected to their music.

Anyone who listens to music has felt an emotional response to a particular song at some point, if not often. Introverts, highly sensitive people, empaths, or anyone internally focused will naturally experience strong emotions to much of the music they listen to. After all, music interacts directly with your brain, affecting everything from your heart rate, motivation, and anxiety levels to emotional response, focus, and memory. “Music gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination and life to everything.” – Plato Have you ever listened to an old song because it somehow brings you […]

Making Friends with an INFJ (or other introverted personality type)

How an INFJ can make friends.

As an INFJ, it can be difficult to make friends because we’re already highly selective of who we choose to befriend, and tend to be better listeners than conversationalists. That is, unless you get us talking about something you know we’re passionate about. Of course, you’d have to know us well enough to know our passions. I know. It’s a conundrum.
