I think the Internet is one of the best things that has ever happened for introverts! Never before has it been possible for an introvert to comfortably approach a person or group of people and say “Hi, I’m an introvert, and this is how I feel about it…” There are so many websites, blogs, and discussion groups online that there’s really no need for any of us to feel misunderstood. Now we just need to get extraverts to “get” us!
On her blog Don’t Be Shy, Dee has written a number of articles discussing the difference between introversion and shyness. One which really caught my eye is Introverts don’t like small talk and other interesting facts. It’s a quick and easy read, and perfect to share with your extraverted friends and family members who just don’t understand you. Be sure to bookmark the site (or add it to your RSS feed) so you’ll remember to go back and read some more – I know I will!
