Introverted Disney Characters

Introversion is a major personality trait popularized by analytical psychologist, Carl Jung. It is a label in contrast with extraversion and is used to describe, “inwardly-functioning individuals.”

Introverts tend to be reflective, quiet, thoughtful and self-aware. They are focused on moods and inner needs instead of physical stimulation and outward desires.  While extroverts are drawn to social situations, introverts would often rather spend time alone writing or reading a book.

In theory, these traits make introverts boring compared to their outgoing counterparts; right? Disney doesn’t think so! As one of the most renowned forms of modern storytelling, Disney movies often feature introverts as main characters.
