Can meditation have benefits for introverts?

meditating sounds really appealing to me for a number of reasons but I feel like my mind’s too inwardly focused as it is, being an introvert. I’m not sure i want to practice turning my attention inward
what do you think?


  1. An introvert is another why of saying your shy
    Meditation can only be good if you do some soul searching to better your self awareness
    Then you become more confident, you don’t have to be loud and aggressive to be quietly confidant

  2. If you are introverted, then probably meditation is the wrong thing for you. My guess is you need to do something that brings out the extrovert in you, maybe joining a drama group or a committee would help.

  3. If you choose meditations that help you build your self confidence, your inhibitions that keep you from being more social will be lowered, and you will feel more comfortable being around others, and less apprehensive about initiating dialogue.

  4. Not all introverts are shy – I’m not. If it’s a personality trait rather than a social phobia, then I don’t see that any medication can help with that.

  5. Being an introvert actually means that you have an excessive amount of neural (brain) activity, and so being in situations where you’re being bombarded with stimuli (such as at a party for instance) may be a bit much for your brain to handle. Because you think more than extroverts, meditation could help you to relax more properly.
