I was terribly introverted until I discovered crystal meth.

Introverts, rejoice! The Internet thinks your glorious idiosyncrasies and private vexations are adorable and that you are worthy of complex care and feeding. Yes, it's great to be an introvert in 2013!

You mean I'm not alone?

That sucks.

My list of ways you might be an introvert:
1) You don't write articles about it.

meat0918: baconbeard: Why is everyone so desperate to label themselves as being "something"?
Human nature.  No one wants to feel alone and ostracized.  Ostracization can make you do some funny things to be accepted....
By gaining a label, you have a group you can identify with, and you don't feel as lonely.


I thought that was why we joined Fark. I...I. thought you guys loved and accepted me. I thought......I thought I was part of a group finally. I thought we were pals. I even ponied up for TF. OH GOD I CAN NEVER FIT IN. I'm going to go live in a cave now. With my dog. Don't even try to contact me. I'm an introvert. I DON'T NEED YOU.

My introversion has slowly morphed into misanthropy over the years.

Slate pretends to know what they are talking about yet again. Typical mixed message in the article that appeals to nearly everyone trying to be in the know, stay on the bleeding edge of the latest trends. Not a shred of factual evidence or logical thread to follow...

Is Slate female?

InfrasonicTom: Wait, I thought being introverted was recently included in the autism spectrum.


Everybody is on the autistic spectrum now. It's how they claim the need for grant money.

Of course the internet loves introverts. It was created by and for us.

I've been an introvert since I was in the freakin' cradle. Seriously, mom says I used to rarely cry and just sat there watching the world go by. Not much has changed, except I don't wear diapers anymore.

/at least not for another 30 years or so
