I’ve always been an introvert. I would rather listen than talk. I would rather work alone than with a group. I would rather sit at home and read (or write) than go out with friends on the weekend.
Does this make me a bad person?
My theory is (and please comment if you disagree) that American society values extroversion much more than introversion and it’s easy to see why. Extroverts are perceived to be go-getters, team players, upbeat, and peppy.
Introverts have their good points as well. We’re good listeners. Often, we can be very creative. We notice and pick up on things that others might not see. We’re not anti-social or reclusive.
Please leave a comment if you feel the same way or even if you think I’m absolutely crazy. I appreciate any and all responses. Have a great day! 🙂
