Spending time with your fellow human beings is important, fun and incredibly rewarding, but it doesn't come easy to all of us. Some people are simply happier alone, or at least with a select few, and there's absolutely nothing wrong with that!

However, because of you know, society, there are times when contact with people is necessary, even for the most introverted of us. That's why when a blissful moment of solitude does occur, an unexpected cancellation for example, or a glorious moment of communion with nature, it is truly something to savor. People on Twitter are sharing their #IntrovertTurnOns, and we are sure that you'll find many of them relatable!

We here at Bored Panda have compiled a list of our favorites for all the introverts out there. Scroll down below to check them out for yourself, and feel free to share your own in the comments! (Cover image: CoCreatr I Facebook cover image: SchuminWeb )

My wife. We've been together over 25 years. We can both chitter-chat all night and I love to talk to her. But we can also both sit in perfect silence for long stretches without any issue or awkwardness.

This is also an “ambivert“ turn on (I can identify with introverts extroverts on almost equal parts). I love people I can equally talk and enjoy silence with.

So true. Two people comfortable and at ease with silence have the best relationship.

I assume it goes with out saying. That you can sit alone with this person in silence and without a phone and not feel awkward. Seems like today groups of people sitting in silence is pretty common because they are all looking at their phones.

My best friend. I can literally sit with her holding her hand for idk how long and we don't have to talk. We've been best friends since childhood. I love it .

I know two guys, friends of mine, like this. I hang with them for hours doing our ow things and no one says a word aside from "Hey", "See you" and "There's too much blood in my head, I'm getting down now". Such fun. Don't know any girls like this though. They're all doing the same thing as us so we never meet.

Welcome to Finland - here it is completely normal to sit with people you know without saying anything. And that is completely OK. Here many people find small talk very difficult. If you just don't have anything interesting to say then it is OK to not say anything. That has been a culture shock for many foreign people - they fear that they have done something bad because no one talks to them. :D

Yes! My wife and I do this all the time. Both introverts, but we love being alone as long as we do it together.

I can do that with anyone. What I don't like is when someone sits down next to me and just has to talk, making stuff up to say...not being able to sit in silence at all.

Peculiarly, I live in a small village where a lot of the locals know me, and I find that reassuring. We talk or wave every time that we pass, and the tourists and other blow-ins say nothing. I think it's the combination of community with the rural person's understanding of space...

To those people complaining about the times you need help, this is EXACTLY how it should be. Speaking for both introversion and efficiency, you should only have to call upon someone when you actually need help. Then when they do help you, they do it as quickly as possible, so they can get back to overseeing a half dozen other shoppers who might need them. The alternative is faking a smile to a cashier forcing small talk and judging your purchases - not always silently - forcing you to buy a bunch of crap you don't need in hopes of distracting them from the wart cream and 50 Shades book you came in for.
