Caring For Your Introvert

March 07, 2006

I missed Jonathan Rauch’s article Caring For Your Introvert article when it first came out, but thanks to I was introduced to it today.

It perfectly describes Michele, and moreover, it describes me too. All my life I have tried to tell people I was shy only to have them object. Now I know that what I was describing as shy is really introversion. How perfect then, is this medium, where I can, to quote Kottke, “carry on a conversation with a whole group of people and stare down at my shoes at the same time.”

Now, please go away and leave me alone.
