    Is this article satirical? I can't tell. The author does seem pretty stuck-up and full of himself, though.

    Or, oh. I'm just misunderstanding him.


    Dealing with introverts is pretty easy. You just.. give them space, don't expect them to not interrupt in conversations, and allow them the freedom to say their piece but don't expect them to talk constantly. Sorry.. you guys aren't exactly the mystical puzzles that these articles paint you to be.

    They need articles on how introverts should deal with extroverts, with fruitful tips such as allowing us to steamroll over you in conversation and coming out with us every night of the week.

    maybe we think we're dealing with them effectively but we're actually not, treating their lack of feedback as approval

    That can happen. I don't think I'm difficult to deal with though...hold on ...I went and checked with an extrovert and I'm easy to deal with.
    Those articles crack me up I ain't that deep... I'm as deep as a paddling pool.
    Just know when to leave me to my own devices.

    I've read that in the past, and passed it onto others when I thought I was an introvert. I don't tend to see any things the other way round though, I think introverts are prone to thinking, since they're the minority, that they already do understand extraverts, when I find nothing could be further from the truth in most cases.

    It's a bit like someone from Africa living in Europe and then assuming that, because the majority of people around him are European, he therefore understands them but they don't understand him, even though he doesn't have much to do with them and socialises mostly with the people in the Africans' clubs, or something.

    Au contraire, I usually read it as disapproval.

    Funny, I get that all the time, being an ENTP on course for the monastic life... I spend a lot of my time in introvert-dominated environments, and believe me, they can be JUST as inconsiderate and dismissive of extraverts' needs. I get "what's wrong with you? why can't you spend three entire days alone and isolated from the world without needing to talk over what you've thought about with someone?" I feel like saying "what's wrong with you? are you so arrogant that you think you can infallibly figure everything out in your head and never need to check it against the knowledge or experience of others, or test out what you theorize in the real world?"

    Maybe I'm not a true introvert. Oh wait yes I am, I do need time alone, and I do need time to formulate thoughts. But I never go somewhere and ignore people, its like well if I wanted to be alone I would have just stayed home. I'm always willing to listen, I might fee exhausted if you talk to be for 30 minutes straight, but great then I don't have to talk about myself. I'm just saying, if you don't want to interact with people then don't, take time for yourself, I'll sometimes go somewhere and read and write, but my friends are never with me. I like my alone time, but I also enjoy my friends, even though at times a purposely let my phone die, don't log on to aim, or check face book for a few days. It's nothing personal just if I didn't do this perodically I'd rip your head off, and this isn't to say I'm not willing to meet new people I'm always willing.
    In no likes experiment.

    that is all

    i dunno what else to say so

    "Extroverts therefore dominate public life. This is a pity. If we introverts ran the world, it would no doubt be a calmer, saner, more peaceful sort of place."

    The point where I stopped reading, yeah thanks I'm insane right? Having a clear head has nothing to do with being E/I

    So much for a how to guide for caring for an introvert

    Seems like they have a different agenda

    Fail.
