People Who Enjoy Spending Time Alone Have a Well-Functioning Social Life

Being alone and spending time all by yourself is something that most people enjoy, finds a new study.

A research, which focused on how Americans feel about security and privacy, found that 85% of the surveyed people think it is 'important' to have private time, while 55% categorized private time as 'very important'.


They also found that 79% of respondents felt it was either 'very' or 'somewhat' important that they should not be asked highly personal questions in social situations or at work.

Earlier studies report that people, who spend time alone have a more "well-functioning social life" than those who are constantly surrounded by others. People are more likely to form far more accurate and lasting memories when they experience them alone.

We are not just enjoying the break from others while staying alone but also actually benefiting from it in ways we may not even have realized.
