Myths about People Like Me

On one of the INFJ professional groups I belong to, I came across this post. It is so 'on point' I have a huge desire to print many copies of it, so that I can hand to anyone who tries to disturb my life.


Myth #1 – Introverts don’t like to talk.
This is not true. Introverts just don’t talk unless they have something to say. They hate small talk. Get an introvert talking about something they are interested in, and they won’t shut up for days.
*This is such a big myth, sometimes..i have to shout at myself to stop talking*

Myth #2 – Introverts are shy.
Shyness has nothing to do with being an Introvert. Introverts are not necessarily afraid of people. What they need is a reason to interact. They don’t interact for the sake of interacting. If you want to talk to an Introvert, just start talking. Don’t worry about being polite.
*Exactly! People would ask 'Are you shy?' and I would always answer 'Shy of what?'*

Myth #3 – Introverts are rude.
Introverts often don’t see a reason for beating around the bush with social pleasantries. They want everyone to just be real and honest. Unfortunately, this is not acceptable in most settings, so Introverts can feel a lot of pressure to fit in, which they find exhausting.
*ol' bob! if I had a penny for everytime I heard this, I would be on my own island*

Myth #4 – Introverts don’t like people.
On the contrary, Introverts intensely value the few friends they have. They can count their close friends on one hand. If you are lucky enough for an introvert to consider you a friend, you probably have a loyal ally for life. Once you have earned their respect as being a person of substance, you’re in.
*oh yes! Infact I like people so much, It's difficult because I tend to absorb their energies, so I try to keep away*

Myth #5 – Introverts don’t like to go out in public.
Nonsense. Introverts just don’t like to go out in public FOR AS LONG. They also like to avoid the complications that are involved in public activities. They take in data and experiences very quickly, and as a result, don’t need to be there for long to “get it.” They’re ready to go home, recharge, and process it all. In fact, recharging is absolutely crucial for Introverts.

Myth #6 – Introverts always want to be alone.
Introverts are perfectly comfortable with their own thoughts. They think a lot. They daydream. They like to have problems to work on, puzzles to solve. But they can also get incredibly lonely if they don’t have anyone to share their discoveries with. They crave an authentic and sincere connection with ONE PERSON at a time.
*Yes at a time*

Myth #7 – Introverts are weird.
Introverts are often individualists. They don’t follow the crowd. They’d prefer to be valued for their novel ways of living. They think for themselves and because of that, they often challenge the norm. They don’t make most decisions based on what is popular or trendy.
*Exactly! if this makes me weird, then good!*

Myth #8 – Introverts are aloof nerds.
Introverts are people who primarily look inward, paying close attention to their thoughts and emotions. It’s not that they are incapable of paying attention to what is going on around them, it’s just that their inner world is much more stimulating and rewarding to them.

Myth #9 – Introverts don’t know how to relax and have fun.
Introverts typically relax at home or in nature, not in busy public places. Introverts are not thrill seekers and adrenaline junkies. If there is too much talking and noise going on, they shut down. Their brains are too sensitive to the neurotransmitter called Dopamine. Introverts and Extroverts have different dominant neuro-pathways. Just look it up.
*Sometimes you have to wonder if there is a universal standard for fun, that people use to judge your preferences*

Myth #10 – Introverts can fix themselves and become Extroverts.
A world without Introverts would be a world with few scientists, musicians, artists, poets, filmmakers, doctors, mathematicians, writers, and philosophers. That being said, there are still plenty of techniques an Extrovert can learn in order to interact with Introverts. (Yes, I reversed these two terms on purpose to show you how biased our society is.) Introverts cannot “fix themselves” and deserve respect for their natural temperament and contributions to the human race. In fact, one study (Silverman, 1986) showed that the percentage of Introverts increases with IQ.
“You cannot escape us, and to change us would lead to your demise''

Now what do you say? :D

My book of hugs

So, I've found this great area, with lots of books, yes! I still have my challenge to read 100 books this year, but I've only made it up to 10! and I average about 5 books at the time. The last book I bought ^^. It was just so cute, and it reminded me of someone, an Anyways, I do hope I manage to get to atleast half of my challenge. The book I'm presently reading, Ugly by Constance Briscoe is just amazing, heart-breaking and thought-provoking, everyone needs to read it, especially that its based on real events.

June is one of those rainy months I never forget and it also seems like a great month to get married in, no..I have no ideas. It's always unbelievable when the year rolls into June, it dawns on you that half the year is gone, your resolutions are long forgotten, many of your plans haven't quite played out the way you hoped, and you start to look forward to Christmas holidays. Anyways, it's been a good time I've had so far, the last couple of weeks and I'm going to be taking a trip this week, woohoo! I've attended about three parties/dinner so far, could have been four, but one didn't go as planned sadly, I also tried to make roast I am really looking forward to my trip and what I'm getting up to when I return! and also the rest of the year. I do hope, the rest of the year would be great for the lot of you too, enjoy!

Home-made Treacle Tart, absolutely lovely.
