Shamelessly stolen from another blog

Of which the owner stole from here. Now im not inclined to agree completely with everything written here, but I must admit most of it is quite true. And im not a complete introvert either, just leaning more to that side than the extrovert side.

10 myths about Introverts

Myth #1 – Introverts don’t like to talk.
This is not true. Introverts just don’t talk unless they have something to say. They hate small talk. Get an introvert talking about something they are interested in, and they won’t shut up for days.

I don't hate small talk! But yes I wont shut up for days xD.

Myth #2 – Introverts are shy.
Shyness has nothing to do with being an Introvert. Introverts are not necessarily afraid of people. What they need is a reason to interact. They don’t interact for the sake of interacting. If you want to talk to an Introvert, just start talking. Don’t worry about being polite.

Awwww. There are many situations that I really am though HAHA.

Myth #3 – Introverts are rude.
Introverts often don’t see a reason for beating around the bush with social pleasantries. They want everyone to just be real and honest. Unfortunately, this is not acceptable in most settings, so Introverts can feel a lot of pressure to fit in, which they find exhausting.

Eh, maybe I kinda got used to social pleasantries heh. I certainly wouldnt mind doing without them though.

Myth #4 – Introverts don’t like people.
On the contrary, Introverts intensely value the few friends they have. They can count their close friends on one hand. If you are lucky enough for an introvert to consider you a friend, you probably have a loyal ally for life. Once you have earned their respect as being a person of substance, you’re in.

Thats so sweet =p.

Myth #5 – Introverts don’t like to go out in public.
Nonsense. Introverts just don’t like to go out in public FOR AS LONG. They also like to avoid the complications that are involved in public activities. They take in data and experiences very quickly, and as a result, don’t need to be there for long to “get it.” They’re ready to go home, recharge, and process it all. In fact, recharging is absolutely crucial for Introverts.

How do people go out every single day without staying at home once in awhile! Im dying going out so much already. Alone time is good.

Myth #6 – Introverts always want to be alone.
Introverts are perfectly comfortable with their own thoughts. They think a lot. They daydream. They like to have problems to work on, puzzles to solve. But they can also get incredibly lonely if they don’t have anyone to share their discoveries with. They crave an authentic and sincere connection with ONE PERSON at a time.

I said alone time is good, I didnt say forever alone is good.

Myth #7 – Introverts are weird.
Introverts are often individualists. They don’t follow the crowd. They’d prefer to be valued for their novel ways of living. They think for themselves and because of that, they often challenge the norm. They don’t make most decisions based on what is popular or trendy.

I'd take that as a compliment.

Myth #8 – Introverts are aloof nerds.
Introverts are people who primarily look inward, paying close attention to their thoughts and emotions. It’s not that they are incapable of paying attention to what is going on around them, it’s just that their inner world is much more stimulating and rewarding to them.

Hey I pay attention to whats going on around me! I think. But yes the inner world is a very cool place to be. Part of the reason why I lie on my bed so much. My parents think im napping but no, im somewhere out there, in an alternate reality.

Myth #9 – Introverts don’t know how to relax and have fun.
Introverts typically relax at home or in nature, not in busy public places. Introverts are not thrill seekers and adrenaline junkies. If there is too much talking and noise going on, they shut down. Their brains are too sensitive to the neurotransmitter called Dopamine. Introverts and Extroverts have different dominant neuro-pathways. Just look it up.

Im a shapeshifter! Thrill and adrenaline is good stuff kay. But yes, sometimes things get too noisy for too long, I need to climb into a closet and close the doors. And accidentally fall asleep in it. It was comfortable and I was tired okay.

Myth #10 – Introverts can fix themselves and become Extroverts.
A world without Introverts would be a world with few scientists, musicians, artists, poets, filmmakers, doctors, mathematicians, writers, and philosophers. That being said, there are still plenty of techniques an Extrovert can learn in order to interact with Introverts. (Yes, I reversed these two terms on purpose to show you how biased our society is.) Introverts cannot “fix themselves” and deserve respect for their natural temperament and contributions to the human race. In fact, one study (Silverman, 1986) showed that the percentage of Introverts increases with IQ.

Now this one just sounds mean to extroverts. I'd beg to differ on every single occupation listed there okay. Maybe there tends to be slightly more introverts in these jobs, but its not enough to say that the world will have 'few' of them. And are you sure for scientists, filmmakers, doctors and mathematicians? But yes, introverts should be respected as introverts.

And then theres another one here, also stolen from the same blog, but I disagree with this one more than the one above.
