I like the part about Silence Is Not An Insult, but you make Introverts sound like they have Chronic Fatigue Syndrome with all the Limited Energy crap

I find this to be true but I find it more accurate to replace energy with honor

"honor"
What?

That is how I see it. When I am in a group that I do not know or someone I am not comfortable with, I feel as if they are naturally judging me about how I interact, what I say, my body, my body language & my eye contact. I feel as it they paint a picture of me that is not accurate and negative therefore taking away my honor leaving me with shame due to there perceived judgement of me. Which they then pass that judgement onto others who then also place that negative judgement on me. So I feel I can only fight back by judging them negatively or I just walk away and not be around them therefore protecting myself against their judgement. To me it's a form of bullying. But then you can also argue that how I act is a form of cowardice. I don't hate them for it though, it is what it is

I realise this. It just seemed to me that you proved my point above

I think you've chosen the wrong word. honor is something that you have that others can't take away from you by judging you. I'm trying to think of a more appropriate word but it's proving difficult.

You can lose honor. Try thinking about it with the synonyms: recognition; distinction; dignity & respect in mind. It is a broad word

I like this a lot. I don't know about introverts giving off energy, though. But maybe I'm just considering a special case.

Remember kids, you have to treat introverts extra special because they're not like regular people.

****, it's like being on Tumblr.

"this is how you interact with an introvert"

"This is how you interact with someone who has an anxiety disorder"

Hell, I even saw one once that was entitled "how to be friends with a writer"

I'm so ******* tired of these ******* advice comics...like, holy ****. If you need a guide on how to interact with people maybe you shouldn't ******* try any more. You want my advice? Just ******* be yourself and see what ******* happens.

this is pretty accurate. for me, I'm somewhere in between extrovert and introvert.

This is the stupidest thing I've read today.   
   
I'll admit, I have some of these traits, but this post makes it seem like introverts are magical, delicate, superior beings that choose worthy enough people to give "energy" to. Maybe if it was explained in a much more grounded way, it wouldn't bother me like this.   
MFW this looks like something an anti-social teen who thinks they're introverted would say put on Facebook

Which I get. I understand everything in it, especially the extroversion, but I personally didn't like the way it was explained. Introversion is just one of those things that are hard to classify under, and to me at least, this wasn't the best explanation.

How's this. Extroverts absorb energy from social environments while introverts expell it at social environments. You already knew that. The point they were making in saying that introverts are annoyed by extroverts is that, often times, introverts are oushed into extremely uncomfortable situations by extroverts because that extrovert has the perspective of a dust mite. Imagine someone trying to force you to read Twilight when you've not only already read Twilight, but lnow for a fact you disliked it. That's what an introvert feels when they're constantly forced to go to parties, get drunk, and dance with complete strangers by extroverts every goddamn week.

Saying "inteoverts will find worthy people to share their energy with" is an expansion of that. We HATE those assholes who try to drag us to **** every goddamn week, so we tend to be friendlier with people who DON'T try to do that ****. I know that with me, personally, if I find out you're the type who's a "party animal", I'm not going to make the time to include you in my day. I won't be rude to you, because I'm not an asshole. I just won't make the effort to know you further.

If I'm ever surrounded by people, like at a dance or something, I just tell myself to emulate liking the music playing or the environment. I pretend to have fun.

I confus because I LOVE hanging out with people but I'm always the one giving the most energy so how does that work? Also I can't imagine anyone not feeling exhausted after a lot of social interaction

Introverts don't not like hanging out with people its just that they find it exhausting or at least draining.

Wait, so introverts create their own energy, while extroverts gather it around other people: does this make introverts like plants, and extroverts like carnivores? Like a lot of people, I don't think I fall really into either camp (I have friends and I like being with people, but seeing them too much makes me feel worn out).

Basically, Is it wrong of me to like the idea of feeding on other people's energy like a T-Rex?

I normally have the energy to go out and party with some friends once a week. But getting drunk makes me ******* retarded and I always wake up reminiscing on what an idiot I was. But I guess that's Alcohol for you.

This instructions sound as if someone is telling me how to care for a very expensive and ridiculous cat.

Hi

I am an introvert

I understand that I'm an introvert and what that implies

I don't think all extroverts are drunks and party freaks who like to **** everything and do drugs

I even have some extrovertive traits sometimes and understand that labeling myself "introvert" doesn't define me in every possible way

I am a rare specimen indeed
