Actions speaks much louder than words when an introvert doesn’t like you.
Introverts can be skilled at expressing their feelings to others, especially when you’ve pissed them off.
You don’t need to be a behavioral specialist to discern whether or not an introvert doesn’t like you. They give off enough clues, letting you know that there is a dent. And, once broken it’s difficult to repair relationships with introverts, but that is for another article.
First, let’s find out what are the signs that an introvert is not interested in you or doesn’t like you?
Some Signs An Introvert Doesn’t Like You
1. They won’t try learning more about you
This one is very easy to understand. If they are not interested, they never inquire about topics that interest you or even invite you to show them your hobbies and other interests.
Therefore, if they have never shown any interest in this field and do not seem to want to get to know you better, there is a good chance that they would prefer someone else over you. Uhh! That’s a red flag .
2. They don’t pick up or return your calls
When introverts are worried, it is common knowledge that they prefer to be alone, and the same is true when they are irritated with someone.
When extrovert get furious, they are likely to want to yell at someone over the phone, which obviously indicates their hate and rage.
When introverts get irritated by someone, their instinct is to remain silent. They don’t want to engage with this person at all, so they’ll go to any length to avoid speaking with them, whether in person or over the phone.
Dealing with the individual who are annoying them is stressful for introverts, so they respond by removing that person from their lives. At least until they forgive or forget what made them do it in the first place.
3. They immediately let you know by avoiding your presence
Introverts hate people who deplete their energy faster than usual, and they may sometimes go out of their way to avoid them—even more than usual. And anger/hate is a huge energy depletion emotion.
So, if you see an introvert avoiding you far too often, you clearly have pissed them off.
4. They act as if nothing is wrong
Pretending that everything is fine is another trait of an angry introvert. It’s their method of avoiding the subject entirely, frequently with one-word comments. Exposing one’s anger in the eyes of an introvert will only lead to greater social interaction and those long, drawn-out discussions about sentiments that introverts loathe.
As a result, their response is to plaster on a big phony smile, communicate with you as little as possible, and get the hell out of there. This is often referred to as passive-aggressive conduct.
Introverts know that avoiding publicly angering someone is the fastest way to end social contact. Because the person may then want to know why they are angry. The quickest approach to finish a contract with someone you don’t want to interact with is to be charming, polite and excuse yourself from his presence as soon as possible.
5. They provide shorter responses
When we’re with someone we enjoy, we tend to talk a lot, even if there’s nothing relevant to say. Introverts aren’t big fans of small talk, but they prefer giving succinct responses or keeping their mouths quiet when they’re with people they don’t like.

6. They don’t try to get to know the people you hang out with
Introverts are loners who want to keep their circle of friends small. If you don’t seem interested in getting to know the people you’re hanging out with, it’s because they don’t like you. They don’t want to be around you for any other reason.
7. They seem more nervous than usual
If an introvert seems more nervous than usual, you can tell they probably don’t like you as much. When introverts are around individuals they love, they exhibit a more calm, cold, and collected demeanor. If you’ve been close to an introvert, you’ll notice it right away.
8. They are angry with your behavior and the way you speak
This is a very simple indicator to determine. If an introvert becomes angry after telling a joke or speaking rudely, this person hates you and is more than willing to openly express their displeasure.
9. They refuse to assist you
Introverts prefer to work alone. They will, however, put up working with with others and receive assistance from people they respect and get along with. You know you’ve gotten on an introvert’s bad side when they refuse to accept your assistance.
True, introverts tend to reject aid from almost everyone, not just those they detest.
When it’s difficult to comprehend why an introvert won’t help you, this becomes clearer. Even when it is painfully evident that they require your assistance, they are adamant that your presence will “harm” them.
You may put your arm around an introvert’s shoulder if he sprained his ankle and needed assistance getting to an ambulance. If an introvert dislikes you, he’ll shove you aside and limp to the ambulance on his own.
10. They do not reduce their defenses
If an introvert refuses to engage in an argument or do anything else that requires them to lower their guard, it’s safe to assume they don’t like you as much as they pretend to.
An introvert’s inner world can be a great place, but most of us only allow our closest friends to get near enough to grasp what we’re thinking.
So, yeah. Those were some signs that tells you whether or not an introvert dislikes you. If you disagree with any of the signs, feel free to post your arguments in the comment section. I’ll be glad to hear you out.

I have a huge crush on a 44yr old Introvert woman in my small town, I am 56yr old male,I asked her out 2wks ago with a note that I passed to her (store where she works was busy) an hour later she texted me saying ' Casey your Sweet but I'm not looking for a relationship at this time in my life right now, I wish you the best'. I did respond to that message and said ' Michal I'm not looking to jump into a relationship either, I just wanted to get to know you, and asked her about her artwork...no response....fast forward to today I went to the store to pick up something and she was working at the counter, we exchanged how ares yous then I asked her if she seen my message about me wanting to know about her artwork, there was a pause....then she said ' I didn't feel like sharing' followed by another pause, I felt tension between us and felt like she wanted me to be on my way, As I replayed what was said on my way home I wanted to ask her ' so there's not even a chance we can't be friends to one another'? I've talked to her brother who I don't know on Facebook and he told me ' I'm shocked you got her number' and he told me she's a tough cookie! Who's really into herself and said I can't remember when Michal was with a man? See this woman has really got me hooked, I don't know what it is? She is very beautiful and sexy and fiercely independent, back to her brother after we chatted for awhile I told him about myself he told me 'dont give up on her' I'm perplexed because everything is going against me right now and this rejection feels like a breakup with a long time girlfriend to me, anyway all I can do is carry on and be nice/pleasant when we do cross each others paths in our small town.Casey in Pomeroy Washington. 😵
