Ten Myths About Introverts

If there is too much talking and noise going on, they shut down.


Myth #10 – Introverts can fix themselves and become Extroverts

both via 10 Myths About Introverts

Last night I was talking to my friend Jessica about introverts vs. extroverts. I can relate to a lot of what’s said in this post. I am afraid it leans just the slightest bit towards having an “introverts are better than extroverts” slant, but overall I like it. I think it’s a good read for anyone, whether they are an introvert, extrovert, or somewhere in between.

While I’m on the subject, why do I get the sense that some introverts are actually ashamed or embarrassed of being introverted? To some people, you’d think that being an introvert was akin to being gay in a red state.

Thanks to @scotttam for sharing this on Twitter.

Actually, he linked to a Tumblr post that pulled the top ten list from the page I linked to.
