Some people believe that having a reserved personality is a negative quality.

But the truth is, there are plenty of benefits to being reserved and many ways to thrive in life with a personality that is more reserved than others.

It can be hard to be the quiet one in the group, mainly because people assume something is wrong and you're upset or that you’re quietly judging them.

But if you are reserved, you know it's just because you enjoy listening to other people have a conversation and prefer to give input only when you believe it's useful or necessary.
