Strange, right? While everyone can keep up the whole night, you’re socially checked out. You just

11. You’re irritated when your friends don’t give you space after a day of hanging out.

What can you guys possibly be doing for another day?! No! Just no!

12. Canceled plans are always the best feeling.

14. You hear and see everything.

There are benefits to being an introvert meaning you know everyone’s business without being in the loop.

15. You write better than you can speak.

For some reason, the right words at the right time betray you. Often you find yourself tongue-tied. But poet in front of a computer screen.

16. People often think you’re mad when you’re really thinking of happy thoughts. 

Well, you were happy two seconds ago, until some asshole told you to smile. WTF!?

  1. Lol I loved the list, I like introverts to be honest as I feel that sometimes they close their eyes on the outer world in order to connect with the world that resides within them in order to be in equilibrium with their thoughts & actions. I’m some sort of an extrovert but I enjoy the company of introverts. Amazing blog keep up the good work, stay in touch & really grateful to you for following my blog 🙂

    1. I can definitely tell you now that being an introvert is both a gift and a curse. Though, sometimes, no lie, I wish I was an extrovert. I feel like it’d just make life a lot easier!

      But I’m really glad you understand my kind because we’re often misunderstood!
