I found this blog post and boy…is it ever ME!!! It is: 10 Myths About Introverts.
I have known these things about myself for a very long time, but most people just don’t get it. It is almost easier for me to simply tell people I am a bit shy…which, in some cases, I am. However, I can also be so outgoing that people won’t believe that about me. I can be very outgoing in situations where I feel comfortable or when I am not tired.
This post describes me to a “t”. It explains so much about how I respond to certain situations. I even printed it out and gave it to Dave to help him understand me better. It is not just that I am a woman and he is a man (although that is part of it). It is not just that one of us is from Venus and the other from Mars. It isn’t even just that I have PTSD…although that can be a factor. It is mostly simply that I am in Introvert and he is an Extrovert!
