NAY

the true introvert does not stay at home

the true introvert seeks solitude in the high Tibetan mountains, or deep in the forests of Panama

I like the fact that Percy and Pooch are wearing capes.

I was going to send up the Procrastinator symbol but I decided that it could wait until tomorrow.

At last! A group I can belong to, and yet never have to attend!

I have noticed something about myself, and this strip in particular has drawn my attention back to that.

I'm only an introvert offline.

In any sort of public/semi-public online correspondence, I suddenly cease to be introverted, and I behave in an entirely more amicable and sociable manner than I ever do in real life.

It is a strange thing.

Perhaps I am not truly an introvert at heart, and merely shy. Perhaps the anonymity of the internet allows me to socialise in a more comfortable manner than in person.

I mean, look at me now, jabbering about my feelings. I'm a totally different person.

I'm an extroverted introvert. I like spending time with people, and strangers don't bother me, even talking on a stage is fine... It just takes a lot of my energy, and I'm equally happy at home with a book or on a trail with a dog.

I'm also more extroverted online, I think mostly because it's easy to go slowly with conversations, and I can look back to see what people said earlier without having to ask. Makes things easier.

I put up the social anxiety symbol, but only on my own ceiling because I realized if I put it up in the sky where it can be seen, everyone would be looking at it and judging its artistic merits or feeling bad that they're being pressured to -do something-.

I can talk to random people easily, as long as it's about something that has nothing to do with me personally. I've been told I'd make a good salesman because of that.

When it comes to talking about myself my usual response is just uhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh... then change the topic.

Me toooo

I'm an introvert who likes people, I super love being around my close friends and I like talking to new people and making new friends. I also tend to be one of the first ones to speak up in group situations (generally because seriously we don't want people just to wait around for someone to speak up, that's so boring) but my extrovert partner (who hates people on the most, and has some social anxiety) gets pissed off that I like to stay at home a lot :V

I'm cool once I'm out but the prospect of going around places just seems to drain the energy from me. Plus if I do have to go out like almost every day (to non work/school things) I'd better be on holiday or I get super drained. I dunno why we can't just do more things inside the flat.

Yeah... if I get home and changed into pajamas (which is the first thing I do when I get home) before you call there's almost no chance I'm going out. If you catch me at work and ask I'll probably go.

Do you like having people over? I don't. I like going to other people's homes and not having people in mine. Mostly so when I'm done being social I can just excuse myself and go home, rather than kick everyone out.

I enjoy having people over but I totes feel awkward at times saying, "okay today was fun, bye now, I've had enough of people for now." though with some friends I am totally "NEVER LEAVE"

I just... tap out, sometimes. So now I'm paranoid about who I invite over because yes oh my god kicking people out is really difficult. This is also why, despite my hatred for driving, I will often insist on driving myself to things with people I don't know well. Having an escape vehicle is really important, even though I almost never peace out of things early now that I have most of my anxiety under control.

I hate having people over. Because it means I have to apply a higher standard of cleanliness and tidiness to my flat. I'd far rather visit someone else, and then also have the "I live out in the sticks a bit" excuse should I want to bog off early.

Also, I'm terrible in large groups. I don't know why, maybe there's some sort of secret body language code for "*I* am going to speak next!" but once I'm in a group of more than 4 or 5 people, it's like I can never get a word in edgeways, everything I do try and say gets talked over by someone louder, and I usually end up just sitting there and listening and being depressed that I can never express my own opinion.

On the bright side, that does sometimes make it slightly fun to surprise people in smaller groups and one-to-one by actually having some quite strong opinions and so on. But that's not much of a bright side.

Thank god for the web, where there are at least some spaces where people bother to read what you have to say, and it's not just all about being loudest or first with your opinions.
