Trauma Due To Hard Parental Upbringing?
Hello, I was educated loudly by my father who was temperamental he did not hesitate to yell, beat and I also often saw my parents quarreling, and that made me afraid of screaming, loud noise and I found it hard to believe with people around, it also makes me often silent, dislikes crowds, difficult to socialize, afraid of opinion, is that just a trauma or am I an introvert?
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
The terms introversion and extroversion actually describe your relationship (including your feelings, attitudes, and behavior) with social interaction. An extrovert recharges his mental and emotional energy with social interaction, while an introvert actually thinks that social interaction is very tiring and can recharge his mental and emotional energy by staying and doing his own activities (reading books, watching TV alone, traveling alone, etc. ).
Several studies conducted show that introversion and extroversion have been obtained since birth (meaning that genetics have a major role in the formation of the nature of introversion and extroversion). Although introversion and extroversion are traits that are already owned from birth, of course personal and environmental experiences can still shape a person's whole personality.
Regarding the nature you describe (you are afraid of snapping, loud noises, hard to believe people, more often silent, afraid of opinion), these traits do not always describe the nature of an introvert. Not all introverts are afraid of loud screams or sounds, not all of them are difficult to trust others, not all of them are often silent or afraid of opinion. Not all introverts cannot socialize well with others. Once again, introversion only illustrates that social interaction makes an introvert more mentally and emotionally exhausted, while doing activities that he likes at home or in the room actually fills his energy. The things you mentioned might be other elements of your personality (outside of introversion or extroversion), and as long as you don't feel they interfere with your daily functioning, they are normal. A person may be quiet and prefers to be alone in a room, and as long as it does not make him unable to go to school, unable to work, cannot establish relationships with family or friends, does not take care of himself properly (for example, so do not want to take a shower, do not want to change clothes, etc.), it is a normal thing.
If indeed the things you mentioned interfere with the functioning of your daily life, you feel disliked by your condition, you feel the condition is disturbing your school or work, then you should discuss the condition with a psychologist or psychiatrist. Psychologists or psychiatrists will be able to dig deeper into the causes of the emergence of these traits and provide therapy when needed (therapy can be psychotherapy alone or can also be accompanied by drug administration).
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
