[introvert]

Lately I’ve been researching personalities: introvert versus extrovert. It’s more than just Type A versus Type B. I came across an article on Huffington Post about Introvert Signs – 23 to be exact. I can honestly say I can relate to almost all of them. I always knew I felt “this” way about certain situations, but I had no clue that all together – they mean something huge about my personality.

  1. You find small talk incredibly cumbersome.
  2. You go to parties – but not to meet people.
  3. You often feel alone in a crowd.
  4. Networking makes you feel like a phony.
  5. You’ve been called “too intense.”
  6. You’re easily distracted.
  7. Downtime doesn’t feel unproductive to you.
  8. Giving a talk in front of 500 people is less stressful that having to mingle with those people afterwards.
  9. When you get on the subway, you sit at the end of the bench – not in the middle.
  10. You start to shut down after you’ve been active for too long.
  11. You’re in a relationship with an extrovert.
  12. You’d rather be an expert at one thing than try to do everything.
  13. You actively avoid any shows that might involve audience participation.
  14. You screen all your calls – even from friends.
  15. You notice details that others don’t.
  16. You have a constantly running inner monologue.
  17. You have low blood pressure.
  18. You’ve been called an “old soul” since your 20s.
  19. You don’t feel “high” from your surroundings.
  20. You look at the big picture.
  21. You’ve been told to “come out of your shell.”
  22. You’re a writer.
  23. You alternate between phases of work and solitude, and periods of social activity.
