For some people it would be a small amount. For others it would be just right. For others it would be too much. Again, I don't think any value is found in statements like that, nor are they meaningful. There is no one standard that applies across the board to everyone in every situation in life!isn't the two social interactions a week JamieMarc suggests a very small amount?
This is a statement that indicates a judgement on being an introvert...that it is not a good thing, or that not being an introvert is preferable or less "limiting".believing we are introverts can make us just that, so it can be a self-limiting belief.
There is not a thing wrong with being an introvert. And it is not "limiting". It limits human interaction, sure. But if you do not need human interaction very often in order to be content with your life, then what is limited? If you are not a person who goes hiking or walking or camping, are you "limited" because your exposure to nature is limited? If you don't have a dog are you "limited" because you don't have the joys of dog ownership? You get my point.
Human interaction is not the be-all and end-all or the thing that everyone needs. For some people it is stressful to have too much, and it is absolutely possible for twice a week to be too much.
Self-limiting preconceptions are always good to avoid. But it is also limiting not to have a mind that is open to accepting all choices in human life and expression, both physically and emotionally/mentally, without judgement.it seems good to avoid using self-limiting "preconceptions" like this.
(again, assuming we are speaking of people who do not do harm to others or attempt to push others to be like them).
If you think that knowing one is an introvert is a self-limiting belief, then knowing one is an extrovery is equally a self-limiting belief. I do not think either one is. There are as many different ways of viewing the world, and of expressing oneself, and of what any individual needs to feel comfortable or happy. I don't agree with judging others who are not like me, or who happen to be in any minority of the population, whether that minority is 25% or 1%.
I think that judging others is self-limiting.
