Is there a god? What is the meaning of life?

Why are spiritual people generally introverts?

Post by Glacier »

According to recent statistics, approximately 75% of the world’s population are extroverts but within the spiritual genre, the numbers are reversed, so why are spiritual people generally introverts?

Now here is the interesting thing. According to this study, extroverts are more religious. Therefore, introverts are more spiritual, but less religious.

Just speculating here, but I think that maybe some, if not most, spiritual people find it less important to announce their beliefs (as opposed to some religious people). They find the spiritual quest to be a personal one and have less interest in promoting or defending their theories and philosophies that they have developed on their very private journey realizing that what others think does not determine their experience. At least, that's how I've come to look at it.
