You might have heard of the quote, “I am rarely bored alone; I am often bored in groups and crowds.” Yes, It’s true there exist a lot of people in this world who prefer to spend time alone rather than partying with friends. Groups of people and crowds scare them. We can not call it a mental disorder. We as a human born on different natures, so is the case with introverts and extroverts. The extroverts energy boost up by interacting with more and more people. Whereas introverts feel relax and become more efficient and productive by spending time only with them. There are no such disadvantages of being an introvert in real life other than less social life. But as a hostler, you would have to face many challenges if you are an introvert or less speaking person. We can say that there are many disadvantages of being an introvert at hostels. Let’s explore these disadvantages with us.
If you are introvert, then you can’t live in a room of 4 and 5 people. In hostels, usually, people live in sharing for less expense. So, as an introvert, you would have to search for a separate room, which is difficult to find in a hostel. Moreover, you will have to pay more. According to my experience, I lived in a shared room with two people. We bought some accessories and furniture for the room. All expenses shared on three, so it was economical. But as living alone, you would have to bear all the things alone. The only benefit you would get by living alone will be your freedom and calm lonely environement.
Most of the hostels fix a time for food. All the people in hostels join the kitchen table and share all day gossips and food at that time. Wait, wait, wait! What about an introvert? Would an introvert survive in this environment easily? The answer is No. So, an introvert would get less food as he is going to avoid the kitchen peak times. And unfortunately, the best food is at peak times. When the actual time gets over, the only food you get is a ginger break and some snacks. Not joking. It’s a severe issue for an introvert If he/ she will avoid people to the extent that will not go to mess on actual time. Then it’s confirmed that there likely fewer chances of getting the desired food.
If you have a routine of being all alone in your room at a hostel, then there are more chances you will get overlooked. You will miss the important announcements. Being less social sometimes keeps you backward in achieving benefits such as discount coupons of hostels, shopping, etc. Moreover, if in any case, you need something badly, whom you will ask if you live with yourself all the time.
As an introvert, you will always be misunderstood with negative personality characteristics such as aggressive and rude. There are misconceptions and a fear that if you force an introvert to be with you, they will behave rudely. Introverts are not pushy and offensive in general, it’s just an image. They wish to live with themselves. One of the most highlighted disadvantages of being an introvert at hostels is that people will be misunderstood your intention and behavior all the time. You can also see that you will become their topic of discussion, and it can disturb you a lot if you are an introvert.
So, according to the disadvantages mentioned above, being an introvert trigger many challenges for you. You can face these challenges by booking small rooms, participating in hostel activities on and off. In hostels, you would have to be a little bit less introvert. Participating in different events will make you more efficient in studies and overall life as well.
