I’ve always felt that I’m a strange sort of contradiction in personality.
On the one hand, I’ve worked most of my life as a performer, including a lot of improvised stuff, which means stepping on a stage in front of a bunch of people with absolutely no safety net. Rarely has any permutation of performance made me uncomfortable. I feel like I’m in my element on stage. A hundred people watching? A thousand? Is there a script? Is there a plan? Whatever. No sweat.
On the other hand, invite me to a party and watch me stare at my feet for two hours and count the minutes until I’m in my room again.
Point being, I 100% empathize with the introverts, because I definitely am one the vast majority of the time. Here’s some funny tweets about it.
10. Glass houses
This feels like it would by Tony Stark’s vacation home or something.

9. A life of contradictions
What’s the kind of lonely where you think everybody needs to stay away?
introverts be like: i'm lonely but don't want to see anyone

8. Simple requests
You know what, never mind, sorry I said anything.
Life as an introvert:
– I love people
– People scare me
– Please invite me to your party
– I hate parties

7. Room to grow
“Aw man, but that’s where all my stuff is!”
When you’re an introvert, being sent to your room as a kid was never really the worst punishment.

6. Go away
No man left behind, unless they feel like it.
Most people: Don't leave me don't leave me
Introverts: Please leave me. Thanks.

5. Stare and stare alike
Look at me! I’m a person!
introvert: [takes the stairs]
extrovert: [takes the stares]

4. A feeling coming over me
There’s not a whole lot worse in this world.
U think life is difficult? U know what introverts feel when guests come over?

2. Righting wrongs
If being right is wrong, I don’t wanna…be?
being an introvert is just people constantly asking you what’s wrong when literally nothing is wrong I’m just not a loud person/have nothing to say/can only fake laugh at so many bad jokes per day?

1. Beneath the mask
To be perfectly honest, I kind of love getting to show less of my face to humanity.

Just remember, if someone wants to be left alone, they’re not wrong, and they don’t need you giving them a hard time about it. Pick up a book once in a while. You’ll start to get it.
Are you an introvert? Extrovert? Both, somehow?
