~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Introversion, & some general psychology ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ It's difficult being an introvert in an extravert-centric world. Introversion is not a pathology or dysfunction: it's a different, quieter way of being. I'm happy being an INTJ, because I almost never get bored... unless I'm forced to participate in mindless small talk. And I don't do perky. 1315
Actually, one person truly knew me. He knew everything about me. The good, the bad, the everything. I trusted him with every piece of me, and he broke my heart. He let me down. I opened up to him, and I trusted him, after I told him that I had trust issues! Guys like him are the reason I have trust issues.
There is nothing wrong with being quiet. It is an art which many have yet to master. ~ Of course, it has to occur to them first. #introvert
Yep, chances are usually 100%. Once somebody crosses the line, I'll never truly trust them again - family included. #INTJ
I see a lot of "Don't overthink" floating around on the interwebz. It's a problem if it leads to circular brooding without any conclusion. But the other problem, of not thinking at all, seems to me to be *far* worse than over-thinking. #introvert #INTJ #GIF
“It was the secrets of heaven and earth that I desired to learn; and whether it was the outward substance of things or the inner spirit of nature and the mysterious soul of man that occupied me, still my inquiries were directed to the metaphysical, or in its highest sense, the physical secrets of the world.” Mary Shelley (1797-1851) #INTJ

"I'm a loner. I don't have a gigantic group of friends. People don't miss me. I'm never the first person anyone looks for in a crowded room. I'm just me, Take it or leave it." - Yep #introvert

This is a terrific window into the introverted mind. As an extrovert I had a lot of trouble understanding my daughter and other introverted loved ones. This book really opened my eyes to the differences between introverts and extroverts and I became far more understanding to their ways of being. A great book!
