Introvert: How to make being an introvert a superpower?

The dictionary definition of being an introvert is “a person predominantly concerned with their own thoughts and feelings rather than with external things.” But is that really the case? Over the years, I’ve done multiple tests including the Myers-Brigg personality questionnaire, which all pointed out my introversion. Being an INFJ apparently means that despite craving my own space, I love to help others.

So how do we make being an introvert a superpower?
