Introvert !

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ 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

“To the mind that is still, the whole universe surrenders.” ~ Lao Tzu

There is nothing like staying at home for real comfort. ~ Jane Austen #introvert

The most direct way from point A to point B: cut right through all the b.s. :-) #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

An extroverted pinner said: "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!" Kudos to Angela, for trying so hard and making a difference :-) #introvert

Introvert humor :-) Yes, I've actually dozed off while having an MRI

Breathing - will have to try & see if this works for an attack of extreme irritation :-)

Fair warning given, even though I try hard to temper this aspect of myself. #INTJ

Note the last question on this survey page - a survey FROM PINTEREST which I was asked to participate in. WTF does self-identifying as an INTROVERT have to do with anything???! I know of no way of to contact the Pinterest staff, so I suppose I'll never find out. Even if I could contact them, I'd expect a corporate-speak non-answer.

Temperament -- The Greek philosophers Hippocrates and Plato both wrote of four personality types around 370 B.C.

Myers-Briggs lists four pairs of opposite preferences. Within each pair, we favor one side over the other, and we tend to use that one most of the time because it comes more easily to us. #introvert #extravert
