It's Official, I'm an Introvert

In a society that celebrates wild and charismatic extroverts, how do introverts find their place? Over the years, I’ve learned to embrace my introversion, and to be true to myself. I learned how to work in harmony with a room full of extroverts by utilizing the best qualities in all of us. I may be quiet, or reserved, but the wheels in my brain are constantly churning. I’m a thinker, a listener, a dreamer. I am an introvert.

Enjoy my journey of self discovery through online quizzes.

Introversion is different from being shy. Shyness is about fear of social judgement. Introversion is more about, how do you happen to respond to stimulation, including social stimulation.

I've since done a bit of research on what it actually means to be an introvert. I found this really wonderful TedTalk by Susan Cain called "The Power of Introverts". If you've got a spare 20 minutes I highly recommend listening and definitely check out her book, Quiet.
