    Default Famous Introverts

    I've noticed a lot of threads about introversion lately that are negative. So I think it will be good for our introverted brethren and sistren to list famous introverts from history or popular culture. Be prepared to back up your claims!

    Note: The following is mostly guesswork on my part from exposure to the works of said person or writings about them. Feel free to criticize and the list will be altered.

    Dante Aligheri

    Wrote the Divine Comedy about a man's trip through hell, purgatory, and finally to paradise.


    Roman poet. Influenced Milton, Keats, Shakespeare, and Thoreau.


    Poet, diplomat, philosopher.

    Charles Babbage

    Mathematician, inventor, philosopher. One of the "fathers of the computer."

    Neils Bohr


    John Calvin

    French Theologian

    Lewis Carrol

    Author, mathematician, Anglican cleric. Writer of Alice in Wonderland.

    This is the point where I haven't had breakfast and go off to go get some. Perhaps I'll continue this later.
    For all that we have done, as a civilization, as individuals, the universe is not stable, and nor is any single thing within it. Stars consume themselves, the universe itself rushes apart, and we ourselves are composed of matter in constant flux. Colonies of cells in temporary alliance, replicating and decaying and housed within, an incandescent cloud of electrical impulses. This is reality, this is self knowledge, and the perception of it will, of course, make you dizzy.

    "An upsidedown wire heart
    Being sucked into a periscope
    Still the mind is dull
    Like you need another excuse"

    … a theory is primarily a form of insight, i.e. a way of looking
    at the world, and not a form of knowledge of how the world is….
    .. all our different ways of thinking are to be considered as
    different ways of looking at the one reality, each with some
    domain in which it is clear and adequate….
    - David Bohm
