{So True} Introverts

Thursday, June 07, 2012

"Introverts, in contrast, may have strong social skills and enjoy parties and business meetings, but after a while wish they were home in their pajamas. They prefer to devote their social energies to close friends, colleagues, and family. They listen more than they talk, think before they speak, and often feel as if they express themselves better in writing than in conversation..." - S.C. Quiet

Were truer words ever written? I can relate oh so well.

Um, SO true indeed! I am an introvert. I don't like when people assume that introverts hide out in their homes, avoiding any and all human contact unless it's absolutely necessary. :) I love spending time with people and engaging in conversation...to a point. Then I need some "me" time.

Thanks for sharing this wonderful quote. Happy Thursday!

Wow this describes me perfectly. I like to do things with other people, but at the end of the day, I love to be by myself in my apartment. :)

Emi said...

With my camera in the morning still of the Arboretum is this introvert's kayak on a quiet lake.

Thank you E. for that quote...beautifully timed.

I guess that quote marks me as an introvert. I've never really thought of me as one but I love the description. And since that's totally me I guess I love being an introvert too :)

I couldn't agree more.

hmmm...i'm starting to see things about introverts all over the place. What's the deal? Have the extroverts hurt their feelings? Made them feel bad or something? I'm an extrovert to the max married to an introvert to the max and I have to say I think introverts are the bees knees.

Thanks for posting this - this describes my husband exactly! It's so nice to have it positively stated, instead of negatively as it usually is.
