    I :steam: when people don't let me have my space and privacy... except I tend to keep tabs on others also.

    Good bump, I never stumbled across this thread before.

    I've always felt that if you're introverted and find a situation socially awkward, you don't have to take it. The best thing to do is just confidently leave if you can.

    Also, do the rest of you (introverts) prefer 3-person interaction to bigger group interaction?

    2 person interaction is the best for me, 3 is often one too many.

    It pisses me off that people see you as rude if you don't want to talk to somebody just because you happen to be in the same room. I always feel like general culture forces me to go against my nature, if someone talks your ear off you can't just tell them to leave you alone because you need space but if you are quiet around people you are considered rude and unsocial. Aargh!!!

    OK, I am the prototypical extrovert in many ways, but have grown to be sensitive to the needs of my audience as it relates to my purpose and of course for the sake of common civility.

    That said, I must confess I had NO IDEA of the need for introverts to have "down time" until about 6 months ago. Why? Because it is a concept totally alien to me. I understand the need for downtime about as much as the late luteal phase of the menstrual cycle.

    But, when prompted to recognize this fact, due to my INFJ wife getting really pissed and withdrawn towards me, the concept now has validity.

    I have no problem granting those that need it "down time," and only request in return not to limit my need for "people time." If you want to stay home and do research on the computer all night, that is cool, no harm no foul, but please don't get pissed at me if I want to go to the local pool hall and shoot billiards with strangers and watch sports on the 18 TVs above the bar while sipping on a Long Island Iced Tea. Don't limit others with your preferences, Capice?

    I never knew this thread was here. Here is my short request.
    Leave me alone when I'm making something!

    Yes, I'm reviving an extremely old thread here.

    But, I have to fill out this form for my year abroad next year, and it's a list of good and bad characteristics. You check them off if in your opinion, you have that characteristic. It's supposed to get you thinking about your compatibility with a host family.

    Anyway, "Is introverted" is on the list of bad characteristics.

    I like introverts. They are fun when you get them out of that little shell that blocks out the rest of the world
    Excuse me, but does this smell like chloroform to you?

    It doesn't bock out the rest of the world. Just the rest of us. I have multiple shells.

    Introverted people don't have a shell by definition.

    I would bet that the 'shell' you mention is just as common among introverted people as with extraverted people. I/E has little to do with it.
