Do you consider yourself an Introvert??
I do and I'm looking for successful (in whatever field) to perhaps interview for a paper in college.

Seems the world is set up, these days, to embrace extrovertism, bordering on exhibitionism, but what of the quiet folk?

I can be outgoing and I'm not shy, but I always need that quiet time.

Any stories you'd like to share? I'd love to hear of how you've encompassed your natural tendencies to find success.

Some say at least 30% of us are introverts, while the world celebrates the extroverts.

Would love to hear your stories. hf

Re: Do you consider yourself an Introvert??
I'm pretty much a happy hermit. I can play the game, as I'm not shy at all but, it's like acting a part in a play and I have to get ready to play the part before I step out into the world of people. It's draining because it's not my natural state.

Re: Do you consider yourself an Introvert??
my husband calls me hermietta, a female hermit.
people bug me, they take up my time and i dont really care too much about them.
i love to watch them though like in a mall where i can just sit, watch traffic, just watching, NOT getting involved.
i cant say i have any friends, but i dont really need any.
i dont understand why people would even want to have a dinner party and im content and happiest when im alone.
my husband is satisfied because he doesnt have to worry about his buddies cming on to me, me falling for someone else, that sort of thing.

i even hate the phone ringing, it only means someone wants something from me.

 Quoting: Turtle


OP - while I wouldn't say I was extroverted, I am most definitely in the "expressive" category. In fact, years ago I was given a test instrument to complete and was so expressive that they re-tested me.

Four categories for consideration: analytic, amiable, driver, expressive.

Here's a link to a description:

And here's a link to a PDF of a simple self-scoring test.

He's amazingly talented! Let me go find some of his solo stuff - and guess what - he's an introvert too. He says, an audience of one or two is harder than an audience of 100. Cuz the one or two want to talk to you, whereas the 100 don't.

Re: Do you consider yourself an Introvert??
Top ten myths about introverts

Myth #1 – Introverts don’t like to talk.
This is not true. Introverts just don’t talk unless they have something to say. They hate small talk. Get an introvert talking about something they are interested in, and they won’t shut up for days.

Myth #2 – Introverts are shy.
Shyness has nothing to do with being an Introvert. Introverts are not necessarily afraid of people. What they need is a reason to interact. They don’t interact for the sake of interacting. If you want to talk to an Introvert, just start talking. Don’t worry about being polite.

Myth #3 – Introverts are rude.
Introverts often don’t see a reason for beating around the bush with social pleasantries. They want everyone to just be real and honest. Unfortunately, this is not acceptable in most settings, so Introverts can feel a lot of pressure to fit in, which they find exhausting.

Myth #4 – Introverts don’t like people.
On the contrary, Introverts intensely value the few friends they have. They can count their close friends on one hand. If you are lucky enough for an introvert to consider you a friend, you probably have a loyal ally for life. Once you have earned their respect as being a person of substance, you’re in.

Myth #5 – Introverts don’t like to go out in public.
Nonsense. Introverts just don’t like to go out in public FOR AS LONG. They also like to avoid the complications that are involved in public activities. They take in data and experiences very quickly, and as a result, don’t need to be there for long to “get it.” They’re ready to go home, recharge, and process it all. In fact, recharging is absolutely crucial for Introverts.

Myth #6 – Introverts always want to be alone.
Introverts are perfectly comfortable with their own thoughts. They think a lot. They daydream. They like to have problems to work on, puzzles to solve. But they can also get incredibly lonely if they don’t have anyone to share their discoveries with. They crave an authentic and sincere connection with ONE PERSON at a time.

Myth #7 – Introverts are weird.
Introverts are often individualists. They don’t follow the crowd. They’d prefer to be valued for their novel ways of living. They think for themselves and because of that, they often challenge the norm. They don’t make most decisions based on what is popular or trendy.

Myth #8 – Introverts are aloof nerds.
Introverts are people who primarily look inward, paying close attention to their thoughts and emotions. It’s not that they are incapable of paying attention to what is going on around them, it’s just that their inner world is much more stimulating and rewarding to them.

Myth #9 – Introverts don’t know how to relax and have fun.
Introverts typically relax at home or in nature, not in busy public places. Introverts are not thrill seekers and adrenaline junkies. If there is too much talking and noise going on, they shut down. Their brains are too sensitive to the neurotransmitter called Dopamine. Introverts and Extroverts have different dominant neuro-pathways. Just look it up.

Myth #10 – Introverts can fix themselves and become Extroverts.
Introverts cannot “fix themselves” and deserve respect for their natural temperament and contributions to the human race. In fact, one study (Silverman, 1986) showed that the percentage of Introverts increases with IQ.

“You cannot escape us, and to change us would lead to your demise.”

Their brains are too sensitive to the neurotransmitter called Dopamine. Introverts and Extroverts have different dominant neuro-pathways. Just look it up.
Myth #10 – Introverts can fix themselves and become Extroverts.
A world without Introverts would be a world with few scientists, musicians, artists, poets, filmmakers, doctors, mathematicians, writers, and philosophers. That being said, there are still plenty of techniques an Extrovert can learn in order to interact with Introverts. (Yes, I reversed these two terms on purpose to show you how biased our society is.) Introverts cannot “fix themselves” and deserve respect for their natural temperament and contributions to the human race. In fact, one study (Silverman, 1986) showed that the percentage of Introverts increases with IQ.

Re: Do you consider yourself an Introvert??
I do and I'm looking for successful (in whatever field) to perhaps interview for a paper in college.

Seems the world is set up, these days, to embrace extrovertism, bordering on exhibitionism, but what of the quiet folk?

I can be outgoing and I'm not shy, but I always need that quiet time.

Any stories you'd like to share? I'd love to hear of how you've encompassed your natural tendencies to find success.

Some say at least 30% of us are introverts, while the world celebrates the extroverts.

Would love to hear your stories. hf

OP - while I wouldn't say I was extroverted, I am most definitely in the "expressive" category. In fact, years ago I was given a test instrument to complete and was so expressive that they re-tested me.

Four categories for consideration: analytic, amiable, driver, expressive.

Here's a link to a description:

And here's a link to a PDF of a simple self-scoring test.

Hope this helps.
