As an introvert I love these and can relate.

Those hit so hard I can't help but laugh.

Introverts are people who should be listened to when they actually speak.

Sheesh. Introverts sure are a whiny bunch.

You never hear this sort of stuff from extroverts and they're supposedly the first to speak up.

A lot of those were very familiar.

This one made me actually laugh:

As an introvert, the Covid lockdowns of 2019-2020 were like heaven on earth to me. A golden age. I could walk my two dogs without running into people who would loudly proclaim "hey! you've got two dogs! did you know that?" (wish I was joking).

Then "science" had to go and ruin it all.

I tried being outgoing in a small town after being led to believe small town people were "better" than city folk.

I like city folk better. The country is a better lifestyle though, if you want to avoid people in general.

The extroverts were the ones biatching endlessly about lockdowns, social distancing and limited social activities. In fact they haven't stopped for some reason.

Introverts are the whiny ones, GTFOOH

Those are HILARIOUS.

And just for the record, extroversion and introversion are not about whether one likes to socialize with other people. They are about whether other people "give you energy" or "take your energy."

I'm an introvert who likes to socialize with other people. But after a certain amount of time, I need to get away and "recharge."

I disagree. In the city there are lots of people around, but at best you'll nod to each other. Most of the time they're just animated barriers you walk around as you go about your day.

<csb>
A few years ago I was on dialysis that involved living with two liters of solution in my guts. Changed it out with a little tube coming out of my stomach a few times a day (inconvenient, but better than having your blood sucked). I was waiting at my local subway stop, the train was due in a minute or two, and right at that moment the hardware holding the cap at the end of the tube unscrewed and suddenly two liters of very dilute piss began to pour down my leg. I grabbed the tube and folded it in half to stop the leak. I'm standing there in a puddle, with a big wet stain on my pants, clutching my guts, and NOBODY SEEMED TO NOTICE. I freakin' looove anonymity.

Mmhmm.  Let's review the empirical evidence before us, shall we?

Complaints from Introverts

1. I don't know what "anti-social" actually means, so let's make it about me and how I'm not it.
2. This is an amusing anecdote about a faux pas and has nothing to do with introversion
3. Your mom is unclear about the purpose of seclusion as a learning tool
4. This is actually extroversion.
An exhaustive 5 through 50 : More variations on the established pattern. A small handful of these are introversion but most are symptoms of depression or anxiety.

Complaints from Extroverts
1.  *crickets*

Seems obvious to me there's a clear winner.

Your move: go look up some Facebook posts of asshat anti-vaxxers from 2020 and generalize them as extroverts because you need to win this argument.

Ok. Seriously though, these "Introvert problems" are a dime-a-dozen but the latest "extrovert problems" I could find was from 2014. I think that's weird.

2) I'm bored
3) We want to go travel, why won't they just let us go drive/fly somewhere, we need to be out
3) We're social creatures, we're not supposed to be so isolated
4) I miss seeing people, I miss <insert activity here>
5) What do you mean this event has limited capacity?  We want to go!
6) My kids will be fine, they need to socialize

Seriously, you think the *introverts* were complaining about not going out, not being dragged to things?  The extroverts thought the world was over because they had to entertain themselves for once.  Seriously, you ignored 2 full years of extrovert whining and want to be taken seriously?

Extroverts aren't good at considering how their behavior effect others.

introverts obsess over it

The important thing is that you think this means something. Feel your feelings and let it out to the group here.

Maybe you want to call it something different from introversion and extroversion but some people forget a faux pas after 5 minutes and some people it haunts them for years.

introverts have been treated like weirdos for as long as industrialization has been a thing.  They don't fit in with the commercial model, and since nobody gives a fark about anything now except your "marketability," they fit in even less.

so in the time-honored tradition of whiny internet people everywhere, instead of trying to fix society, or  find a niche they can function in, introverts are going to keep trying to fit in where they don't, because it pays really farking well.  Meanwhile, they work and live in a place that isn't suited to them, doesn't have the mindset they live under, and does nothing that they believe in, as a person or societally.

Just like everyone else.
But they have a really cool blog about being an introvert, and how unfair the world is to them.

Maybe you want to call it something different from introversion and extroversion but some people forget a faux pas after 5 minutes and some people it haunts them for years.


Ok, fully serious here:

Introversion is when you feel refreshed by solitude. Extroversion is when you feel refreshed by being around other people.

Then there's people like me who feel both ways depending on our mood and think the dichotomy is often forced and ridiculous. At any rate, it has nothing to do with social skills.

I know perfectly well what you're talking about with the faux pas thing - last night I was haunted by something silly I said  over twenty years ago. Introverts and extroverts alike experience it, and I honestly think it has something to do with anxiety.

My point with my clowning around is what you're calling "introversion" isn't introversion, it's navel-gazing, and while it's fun in moderation it's also the most classic of unhealthy obsessions.

As always, if you feel one or more of the article's "symptoms" is having an adverse impact on your life - do seek professional help. It's not "just" introversion and you deserve to be mentally healthy.

Take care everyone!

I am very introverted. My personal statement I put into a song. I'm no singer by any means, however, the message is there.

Uncertain where I personally lie on the troversion spectrum, but I have yet to meet a stupid introvert.
 
2022-06-26 4:16:05 PM  
According to the internet, nothing makes introverts happier than going on the internet and incessantly explaining that they're introverts. Harmless enough, but nobody actually cares which vert you are. And I suspect "introvert" has become a catch-all excuse for not having your shiat together enough to RSVP like a grown up.

As much as people love defining themselves, I suspect introversion/extroversion exists on a shifting spectrum, and people just tend to be on one side or the other slightly more often.

Not only did I not RSVP, I skipped the wedding! They're boring, the clothes are uncomfortable, and if my absence ruins someone else's wedding they had bigger problems.
