There have been many famous introverts throughout history that most of you may not even realize. If this is the first time you're hearing about introverts and extroverts, then I will quickly explain. Both are part of a human personality theory spectrum where people are put into two categories. Introverts are people who are energized by being alone, enjoy thinking, exploring their thoughts and feelings, and who often avoid social situations because being around people drains their energy. Extroverts tend to lose energy when alone, become bored easily without other people around, and enjoy social situations. You can have traits of both, but usually lean toward one side more than the other. Although people who are more on the extrovert side seem to be favored in our society today, there have been a lot of successful and famous introverts as well!
1. Keanu Reeves
Believe it or not, Time magazine dubbed Keanu Reeves as "Hollywood's Biggest Introvert" in 2005, which is why he is #1 on this list of famous introverts. Despite being one of the biggest names in Hollywood, Keanu is one of the only stars to not own a mansion, not wear fancy clothes, and not have a bodyguard. In fact, for one of his birthdays, Keanu bought himself a cake at a bake shop, started eating it alone, and would offer a piece to fans that came up to him. This is why the nickname "sad Keanu" started, when in fact Keanu isn't constantly sad, he just likes to do things alone.
