Are you an Introvert?

As you may remember, Kim Kircher and I presented a workshop last summer that included a section called, Care and Feeding of Your Inner Introvert. We included suggestions like giving yourself quiet time to refresh before and after social events, staying rested, and approaching social events in small doses.

My friend Dorthe sent me this interesting article in The Atlantic called Caring for your Introvert. I like that it attempts to clear up several misunderstandings about what traits are and are not included in the stereotype.

  1. Aha. See I AM an introvert. Thanks for the great link!

  2. “care and feeding of your inner introvert” made me laugh out loud. Thats a shoe truly fits.
    My favorite line: Sometimes, as we gasp for air amid the fog of their 98-percent-content-free talk, we wonder if extroverts even bother to listen to themselves.

    This is a great article! I’ve struggled to convince people that I reallly am an introvert, not an extrovert. People don’t understand that introverts can be lively…we just need alone time to recharge too.
