Well. Apparently I’m an introvert.
I do every single thing listed in this article.
And this part was pretty interesting:
A lot of people have the wrong idea about introversion and confuse it with shyness. But shyness and introversion are not the same. As described by one neuroscientist I spoke to, shyness is behavior: acting fearful in social situations. Introversion is motivation: low drive to participate in social situations. So while shy people might want to socialize but find it intimidating, introverts have the skills but can take or leave socializing.
That explains a LOT. Like why I’m spending my last day of school with my headphones in, hiding from everyone, hoping no one will talk to me.
