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.
