Caring for Your Introvert

The path

I was trolling through the website of one of my favourite authors (Neal Stephenson) when I came across this cool article 'Caring for your Introvert' (it's not written by Neal Stephenson, but by some other guy, it's just how I came across it :-P)

Anyways, go read it, it's cool! Specially liked these quotes:

"I'm an introvert. You are a wonderful person and I like you. But now please shush."

"are driven to distraction by the semi-internal dialogue extroverts tend to conduct. Introverts don't outwardly complain, instead roll their eyes and silently curse the darkness."

I'm not sure if I'd be classified as an introvert, last time I took the Myers-Briggs test in university I kind of confounded the psych lecturers (the word 'unclassifiable' was used)... Anyways, I identified a lot with that article on Introverts, especially about feeling comfortable by myself with my own thoughts. :-D

That's it... ain't got anything more for you... go read the article... I could ask whether you classify yourself as an introvert, but you won't answer anyway, so go be quiet and read the article

I think I might be an introvert. What do you think?

hmmm... well you have elements of an introvert (occasionally 'needing' to be alone), myself I don't think it's black and white, you can have elements of both...

I do know a real extrovert, and you're not like him, he really does wilt if he's alone, and comes alive and energised when with others..

I think you're right - quite funny though cos a lot of people who don't know me (or even some that think they do!) would recognise my extrovert elements but nothing else. Never let it be said that either of us is at all complicated though!!!
