I love this article so much, I had to share it today!
(I am emailing it to my husband and close friends, so that they can finally understand some of the things that make me, well, me. )
Pop over now to read “12 THINGS INTROVERTS ABSOLUTELY NEED TO BE HAPPY.”
The author is The Secret Lives of Introverts: Inside Our Hidden World. From her site:
the founder of IntrovertDear.com and the author of the bestselling book,
She blogs for Psychology Today, and her writing has been featured on Quiet Revolution, The Huffington Post, The Mighty, The Muse, and elsewhere. Speaking as an expert on introversion, she has appeared on numerous radio programs and podcasts. For most of her life, Jenn felt weird, different, and out of place because of her quiet ways; now, she writes about introversion because she doesn’t want other introverts to feel the way she did
Boy am I glad she writes about this. It is so spot on.
Numbers 6 & 9!!!
I have read many articles on introvert behavior, but this was the first mention of having difficulty putting things into words and needing a room of one’s own or time in a space on our own. We are moving into a new apartment next year, and I am thrilled that I will have one room that will be all my own. I cannot put into words what this means for me!
I thought it was just one of my idiosyncrasies, but it seems I am not alone.
I have already ordered her book to read more.
My fellow introverts, what do you think?
