Top personality traits of people who like to be alone! These are the traits and characteristics of people who like being alone!
#9. “Valuing Time”– Even if a person likes being alone it is hard to find alone time in the modern world especially with jobs that require interaction with customers or co-workers and with social media and technology having become such a prominent force in everyone’s day-to-day lives. Because their own alone time is so precious and when they get it they try to appreciate it as much as possible, loners tend to value the time of others more than those who don’t enjoy alone time. People who enjoy being alone are more likely to be punctual when it comes to events where they are needed, such as their occupation. When you combine a loner’s adept self-awareness with their increased value of time you can see how they would understand how it might annoy or inhibit their boss or other’s that depend on them when their time is taken is taken for granted. Loners are also better at staying on task and listening to direction as they know that the faster and more efficiently they finish a task the more alone time there will be at the end of the day, where it is just a few seconds or not. This is also a reason that loner’s are sometimes more proactive, as they want to get things over with so they can ‘do their own thing’. On the other hand loners can be so self-reflective that they get stuck thinking about doing things rather than actually doing them, causing them to be some of the worst procrastinators if they don’t stick to a schedule.
#8. “Respect Boundaries”– People who spend a majority of their time alone or that are at least enjoy being alone are able to take the time to reflect on themselves and develop strong personal beliefs. Because of this they understand other people’s needs to have their own beliefs and how to not infringe on them. This could be identifying boundaries that are philosophically deep like those of religion or just being able to better respect boundaries of personal space. Being alone and self-reflecting also builds one’s confidence in their own personal boundaries and not shying away from telling others when they’ve crossed the line. They aren’t afraid of enforcing their boundaries because they know that if someone doesn’t respect them they don’t need them as a friend. People who don’t like being alone would be more hesitant as they are afraid of losing people.
