  1. I absolutely love this list, as it shows that introverts aren’t anti social freaks. Yes, some introverts are shy, some has social anxiety disorder, but that’s not true for every single introvert. I can be very social at times, but I always need my alone time at the end of the day to re-energize. 🙂

    • I have had the same experience. One of the happiest days of my life occurred at a seminar in which the presenter said many extroverts would be well-advised to pick up a few introverted traits. Up to that moment I always thought the learning was one-sided — slanted toward the introverts, In America we do tend to vaunt the extroverts, e.g. Donald Trump. May I invite to search further on my site. There are other posts on the subject. We introverts be OK! Thanks for your interest.
