    Default What it's like to be introverted

    xkcd: Overstimulated

    I reckon that's a pretty good summary of introverts in social situations. Well for me anyway. This site seems to be run by INTs. I think it's very funny and clever.

    Maybe they were pressured into it. Introverts can go to social events without wanting to.

    I also wouldn't But when everyone's really friendly you don't want to disappoint them(Fe), your really forced into it.
    A search for truth is a search for a greedy perspective.

    Nah, that's not truth. That's just your bullshit ideas of truth. Truth is always inclusive. If it's not inclusive, then toughen it up and try harder.

    I have, many times. Sometimes I even enjoy it.

    That statement is like syaing no extravert would ever be on their own.

    Yeah, I can definitely relate to the comic. I think it's pretty accurate. It particularly makes sense in situations where there is a lot of small talk or non-N type conversation (what happened last week at the PTA potluck; how the neighbor went about constructing his new patio deck).

    I go out often with groups or to events with large numbers of people. I also wander off into gaga land long before the night is over (like the comic above).
    With dreamers, pure and simple, the imagination remains a vaguely sketched inner affair. It is not embodied in any aesthetic or practical invention. Reverie is the equivalent of weak desires. Dreamers are the aboulics of the creative imagination.

    Yup, "honey" got dragged along by a well-meaning SO from what I could tell...

    Unfortunately this travesty happens much more than it should in our enlightened age. Stop the violence against introverts! Don't make us go to your lousy gab-parties!

    “Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft
