Yep, my day. All day. It’s World Introvert Day. Why today, you may ask. Because it’s the first day after a long, exhausting string of holidays, celebrations, get-togethers, etc. All the things we introverts find exhausting but that, to a large degree, are unavoidable. (This year I had a good excuse — a truly nasty cold.)
Of course, this may aversion as much as introversion. I go to ground sometime around Halloween and emerge sometime in January. That also coincides with shorter, colder winter days and possible SAD, so who knows.
Anyway, yay me — er, us — the 50% or so of the population that is introverted to some degree. We’re all on a spectrum of introvert-to-extrovert and the dividing line is at about the halfway mark. But then you throw in ambiverts and omniverts, and it gets complicated.
Nevertheless, here’s to introverts everywhere.
