    It's funny, when I think of the ultimate "cool" person, I think of a ISTP, slouched over, in the background observing from a distance, laid-back, looking like they don't give a damn, the aloof, nonchalant attitude. You extorverts should envy the average ISTP's cool.

    I guess I like being introverted, but if I was extroverted I wouldn't mind either. I think the only thing that makes being a introvert hard is having friends who don't understand what it means, and that want you to go go go all the time just like they do.

    No it's not hard. I'm good at being me.
    Everything that I express is simply an opinion with varying levels of support

    If I seem like a different type to you, I hereby give you permission to type me however you want.

    The question itself is something personal, i.e people would answer it differently every time due to their experiences/hobbies/ or the general people around them.
    It should have been : Do you find being an introvert hard?
    ^^

    For me.......being an introvert is hard sometimes. Especially since my mother is an extrovert and she just DOES NOT believe in these things.....
    On another note if I am invited into a five people gathering (including me) with two people I know well and three people I don't, then I tend to not really enjoy myself wholeheartedly. And wish that it was just me and one friend. I feel so happy going back home after a party! XD
    But when put in such situations I am friendly and amiable. People think of me as an extrovert then, and I really do hate assumptions by other moms. Me being a 'good' person etc. (I am really happy when they say that but I feel really guilty since in my eyes I am far from being a good person.)
    Also they say it so easily after only seeing me for.... what? An hour or so? I mean... Hey! I shout at my elder brother, argue with my mother, make a declaration nearly every month about how I will not wear make-up....and you get the idea.
    Can you really call me a good person after that?

    All in all, being an introvert is wonderful, and even if I am misunderstood it is a much better feeling than being understood (esp. by the wrong type of people)
    Nobody is evil, nobody is wrong, nobody hates you; but yourself.

    Im indifferent. I'm happy as I am and don't see any problem with it. I think growing up it was an issue for me because I had a few extroverted friends who 'expected' me to do this or not. But the older I get the less I care. I'm not an extrovert, nor do I try to be. But I am comfortable with dealing with people at a job when I need to.

    I'm fortunate in that I know how to work with people -both personally and at a job-. I know too many introverts irl who are almost afraid to leave their home. I think what it comes down to is I realized a long time ago I can improve myself but I can't change myself. I will always need time to myself. And as soon as I realized that I knew I could do anything an extrovert can do, just in finite amounts.

    It doesn't seem that hard.

    +1 Very well put.

    It's not hard, the only part that is hard is watching peopel around you go al extraverted and away they go, forgetting you're there.

    It was hard to be an introvert this weekend in a cottage full of extroverts (heavy Fe ones) with nowhere to politely hide away. Nothing but chattering. Fun, just exhausting.

    Introversion (if I really am introverted) poses no problems for me. However, I have a HUGE social anxiety issue that I'd love to get rid of.

    Not type related for me.

    In fact, with some extraverts, I just feed off of their energy. Sometimes it feels so great to drink it all in and you become so energetic yourself. But if it's the wrong kind of person, you just want them to STFU.
