    12 Ways You Know You’re an Introverted Christian

    I am an introvert. I am a Christian. I am an introverted Christian. Does this sound like you? See if you can relate to these 12 signs.

     

    1. Worshipping is fun and all, but having headphones on, worshipping in the comfort of your own world, still wins.

     

    2. Church ends, mingling begins (aka WORST THING EVER).

     

    3. That moment at camp where you just want to be alone to recharge and there is nowhere to go.

     

    4. You’d rather hang out with your closest friends than in a big group any day of the week.

     

    5. When your youth group is cancelled and you can just be alone at home.

     

    6. Your friend asks you about a certain story and you go into a super-deep theological discussion right then and there.

     

    7. You’d rather be on the pulpit giving the sermon than having to make small talk with a group during the “introduce yourself to someone around you” segment of each church service.

     

    8. You’re quiet on the outside, but inside, your brain is giving the best theological discussion since Martin Luther.

     

    9. You in the church van.

     

    10. The guy in your youth group or community group you’re totally crushing on? Yeah, he’s probably an extrovert.

     

    11. You’re a VERY loyal friend and a great example of what Jesus preached. In fact, your honesty and love toward others are your strongest attributes.

     

    12. The event calendar that’s on your youth group or community group Facebook page is literally stressing you out.

     

    13. You’re truly the best listener ever, and your friends know this. Hello coffee + friend + epic discussion + prayer = BEST night ever.

      • I don’t think it’s necessarily good or bad. It’s just a personality difference. There are definitely strengths and weaknesses of being introverted, just like with being extroverted. We need different types of people to balance each other out.

      • Not at all! God made each of us unique and special. To be introverted just means that you have more introverted tendencies, like you get your energy from spending time alone and/or with God, and you would prefer to be in smaller groups of people. Even extroverts (who are really just more extroverted than introverted) have their introverted moments, too. You are not alone! 🙂

    1. I agree with a lot of these, but kind of have an issue with 5 and 7. Introversion is not synonymous with shyness. Youth group is one of my favorite places because I love hanging out with and fellowshipping with the people there, and I also love meeting new people and making new friends! I need my alone time for sure, but that doesn’t mean I don’t equally love interacting with people (just in smaller doses than extroverts do)!

    2. You become a prayer warrior for someone in your church and you’ve never even spoken to them (or not very much)! There was an older man in my church with aggressive cancer and I prayed for him every night for a year without speaking to him, haha.

    3. Wow, this is so accurate. Literally, in every way. I always felt sort of weird/guilty for being able to worship better at home in my room with my headphones in than at church in the crowd, so seeing that in the list is actually a huge relief for me.
