People Who Prefer to Be Alone Have These 21 Unique Personality Traits
Some people love and appreciate loneliness more than anything in this world. Us, humans, are creatures who are determined to live in packs, in large communities and our social-connections are crucial in the development of our personalities and view of the world.
However, the loneliness is something that means freedom, passion, creativity, mysticism and tranquility for a certain group of people who are truly special. They don’t really need to be connected and they could actually survive in their loneliness, but there is much more behind their behavior. Social psychologist, Bella DePaulo, explains: “They do not have a particularly strong need to belong. And they are less likely to be lonely or to be depressed. Put all that together with tier openness, agreeableness, conscientiousness, extraversion, and low levels of neuroticism, and people who are unafraid of being single look totally badass.”
