Those Who Prefer to Be Alone Have These 21 Unique Personality Traits

There are people in this world who like to spend time alone, away from the hustle and bustle of extroverts. Others might think that they are this way because they are shy and don’t have the confidence to merge with bigger groups but that’s not so. They are strong, confident individuals who know exactly what they want from life and therefore don’t get distracted by others. Social psychologist Bella DePaulo says that these people do not mind being single and are very comfortable being alone.

These are the 21 personality traits that these people have:

1. Incredible Emotional Strength

Since they spend most of the time with their own thoughts, these people are In touch with their emotions and can understand themselves better.

2. Naturally empathetic

Being observant and kind, they can understand and feel what other people are going through and therefore are in a better position to provide support to others.

3. Strong Moral Compass

These people have a very distinct sense of right and wrong since they contemplate things when they are alone.

4. Open-minded
