snakypoet: (with Chamuel)
[personal profile] snakypoet
I am an introvert. I am quite happy with hours of my own company, and NEED great gobs of solitude and reflection every day or I get frazzled and cranky. I was a shy, withdrawn child with just a few close friends. As an adult, I learned to look outwards as well, and to feel self-confident — but I am still hopeless at small talk, prefer email or at least texting to phone calls, keep my facebook chat switched off, and usually wriggle out of attending parties.

I can initiate conversations if I have something important to say (like, 'Can you tell me the way to the "Ladies"?') but it doesn't come easily.

I'm both. I love talking to strangers, I love parties, but if I don't get in my quiet time, I too, become cranky schmanky. I need my alone time to reboot and to clear my overloaded, overwhelmed mind.

Hear, hear! If only my family could work out the 'big gobs of solitude' thing.
