    Default Introverts: Do you agree with these things?

    http://www.lifehack.org/articles/com...-tell-you.html

    Found this article on Facebook. Since I'm an ambivert I can partially see myself in it, but how about you real introverts?

    I'm also an ambivert and I agree about half of that is a load of bull crap written by syphilis personified.

    It's a sucky attitude. But

    I don't care that much about birthdays.

    I do listen to people.

    I hate crowds.

    I don't think I've ever been to a networking event.

    I like most people while I'm talking to them. I usually find something about most people to like, even if I don't like them on the whole.

    I'm not the best git'r done person in the world. If I have to do something, though, I do like to get it over with as quickly as possible without the risk of having to redo it later.

    I like to write. I am better at it than talking.

    I would think anyone would feel safe with the right people.

    I don't have a lot of friends, irl. I mostly hang with my family, at least the ones I like.

    I can extrovert up to a point and don't always mind.

    I am sometimes shy and a bit uptight, but I usually don't mean to be rude.

    I am more than okay alone.

    Small talk is totally fine with me. If things go much past small talk, my weird will start to show and that's when things start to go wrong.

    I am not God's gift to the human race. Nobody has to appreciate that I took time out of my busy internetting and werewolf smut reading to interact with them. Sheesh! Who thinks like that??
    “There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”

    Some things apply, some things don't / are silly / I don't relate to at all. I think it's a lousy article/list -- some of those things listed have nothing to do with being introverted.

    Quite a lot of it applies to me, but I think it applies better to INs, and especially INTs, than to ISs and/or IFs.

    I identify with most of it and have spent half my life finding ways of dealing with it. For example, I don't try to look interested as you talk about your weekend. I actively seek ways to respond to what you're saying. I pick something out of the refuse of your dull, uninteresting weekend, or your trip to Alaska, or whatever. By the time you're finished with your spiel I'll be ready and waiting with something. You may or may not like what I have to say, but it's better than me standing there like a dummy with nothing to add.
