Did you know that there are four different categories of introverts? There is a wide spectrum in which we can be classified when it comes to how introverted we are, but the four general categories of introversion are social introverts, thinking introverts, anxious introverts, and restrained introverts. They all have different wants and social behavior, but they all share similarities in how they feel more comfortable focusing on their inner thoughts and ideas instead of what happens around them. While that may imply that they would not enjoy social interaction, that is simply untrue as introverts still value social interaction, there simply is a preference for their socializing to be spent with small groups rather than large ones, and value meaningful conversations over small talk. Senior living communities may hence appear to be a bad idea for introverts who seem to find social interactions draining, but humans are social animals, and the meaningful and lasting bonds forged in senior living can be just what introverts need in their retirement years. Hence, here are a few reasons why senior living in Tulsa, OK, is great for introverts!
There is a common misconception that the senior living experience is a standardized experience for all residents, but that simply isn’t true. Senior living communities prioritize community above all else, and this involves handling a number of very different personalities. Hence, senior living communities are designed for you to enjoy sufficient freedom to manage the amount of social interaction you are comfortable with, based entirely on you! Find the place within the community that fits you best and forge new and lasting bonds with other residents in the community now!
Many introverts also fear the shift to senior living communities due to the lack of private time they would have for themselves. Many people fear that all their time would be spent on pre-determined activities, and there would not have enough agency over their own private time. In truth, senior living communities not only give you plenty of freedom in deciding your schedule, allowing you to manage your private time any way you want, senior living communities still prioritize your private time and ensure that you will be able to enjoy your much-needed privacy. Even assisted living communities offer this, as the professional staff there are trained to be there when you need them, but also give you your private time when you need your own privacy.
A common fear among most introverts is often their inability to make friends. Socializing can be draining on them, and this often results in the fear of social isolation in these senior living communities. However, in truth, humans are social animals and making friends in these communities are more simple than you may think. The hard part would more likely be the ability to forge these bonds, and hence that is where senior living communities come in. Join a senior living community and enjoy the new and fresh bonds with different residents now!
