As you may have noticed (or not) I am intrigued by personality types. Particularly the Meyer’s Briggs test. I, myself, am an ENFP (Extroverted Intuitive Feeling Perceiving). My personality type has also been described as the “introverted extrovert” or vice versa. I am in the middle. Basically, when I want to be alone, I want to be alone with other people in the room, and I don’t want to have to talk to them.
Really, it all depends on my mood. But I like people. A lot. Except sometimes when they’re idiots. Then I just wonder if I’m part Elf/Time-Lord/Yoda. But enough about that, we were here to talk about introverts.
Why? You ask.
Well, I answer, because that’s what the title said. It clearly stated we would be talking about introverts. So that’s what we’re doing. Don’t question it. Thank you.
Most of my friends are introverted, which is interesting, or at least, I think so. Tell you what, if you decide that you think introverts are boring, you can go get a cup of coffee and go read your Reader’s Digest magazine. Alright? Comfy? Good. I’m going to continue talking about introverts. Don’t bug me anymore. Thanks.
As I was saying. Most of my friends are introverted. I like them. Some people think they’re too quiet. Some people think they have something wrong with them. Some people think they’re sad and serious all the time. But I know better.
They’re quiet cause they only talk when something needs to be said. They don’t like wasting words. They don’t have something wrong with them, they just like to think. And that’s their thinking face, just because they aren’t smiling all the time doesn’t mean they’re depressed.
I also know that they are some of the funnest, craziest people alive. And I am so blessed to have them for my friends.
When I go to their houses, I don’t feel the need to talk 24/7 or do things all the time. They’re relaxed and completely fine with reading a book and not talking for 20 minutes at a time, or scrolling through Pinterest, or watching a movie. And it’s all good.
I’m not an awful person if I want to just think for a couple minutes. Or read that magazine. It’s perfectly fine by them. Heck, they really wanted to read their magazine too. Not that extroverts are in your face and making you do things every five seconds. Just in general, introverts are a lot more relaxed and fine with minimal conversation.
And introverts are extremely interesting as well. Like Rubix Cubes. (See what I did there?)
So the next time you’re out somewhere, and you see someone in the corner quietly sitting there, go talk to them. Meet an introvert. They might be scared of you at first, but they’re awesome. So go do it. I’ll wait.
