A WHOSA-WHATSA-VERT?What is an introvert?
Introverts gain energy by being alone. Stimulating environments and social situations are draining for introverts. We can only handle so much before we MUST restore ourselves in solitude.
This is where many people are confused about introversion. It’s not about wanting to avoid people because of shyness, or sadness. Introverts NEED to spend time alone to feel at our best. Plain and simple.
In contrast, extroverts are energized by socializing. They get a buzz from the very activities that overwhelm introverts. When extroverts spend too much time alone, they feel bored and depleted.
Neither personality type is superior, we simply have different needs.
You are just amazing Michaela and your writing has turned my life around. Thank you.Maria B, Ireland
