    Great graph! This is me in a nutshell!

  2. calvin says:

    My life in a Venn, I don’t know if I hate or love this!

    • NoriMori says:

      Lol! I hadn’t thought about it that way. Now I’m depressed. >< Or am I?

      But anyway — this diagram? So true. I'm not an introvert, but I turn into one at parties. XD

    add some hooch – stress RELIEF.

  4. Lisa says:

    Thanks for pinpointing my life once again. :-)

  5. Cat's Meow says:

    Nice one

    You forgot the third part of it: unknown people.

  7. marancat says:

    Oh yes! C’est moi! And look – oh joy – I am not the only one!

  8. Karoline says:

    oh yes!
    standing in a corner, breaking sweat, looking panicked, pale-faced, nervous…
    someone approaches, says something – eeeeeeeek!!!!

    Looks like Natalie Dee is having a laugh with you.

    Somehow alcohol has to factor into this. This diagram is definitely me, but if I drink, I’m totally okay at parties.

    Party pooper

    “Research differentiates between shyness and introversion, although they are related. Introverts prefer solitary to social activities, but do not fear social encounters like shy people do. �If you see two people standing by a wall at a party,� Carducci says, �the introvert is there because he wants to be. The shy person is there because he feels like he has to be.”

    With this comment I destroyed every chance I had for a fun meeting of the minds with y’all. :(

    • MatteS says:

      I see myself as introvert. I do like to attend parties. But at the same time, alchohol tends to “cancel out” my “introvertedness”. Does that tell me im shy?

    • Char says:

      Yeah introversion is different than shyness. But the diagram is correct (note it didn’t use the word “fear”). Having to deal with large groups of people is stressful for the introvert. Even if he is somewhere he wants to be, it’s still emotionally draining to be there.

      • Char says:

        and yeah I realize no one is going to see this since it’s old. But still makes me feel better. :P

  12. Laura says:

    Nope, Leslie, as an introvert and a psychologist, I have to say that you’re correct. Trying to get people to understand the difference (mostly non-introverts, that is) can be difficult.

  13. gwen says:

    Hmm, I’d cross out “stress” and replace it with “work.” Socializing simply takes effort for us. I’ve always loved Jonathan Rauch’s timeless essay, Caring for Your Introvert.

    • Steve says:

      gwen’s comment rings true. I can socialize if I work at it, but it can take me most of then next day to recover.

    Lord above, so true that is

  19. Rob Fisher says:

    This is me too, but my back would be up against the wall of the “parties” region, hoping the wallpaper matched my shirt.

  20. Rachel says:

    Good to know there are so many of us out there. I tend to feel like I’m the only one!

  21. guh. says:

    lol—- most definitely had a introvert panic attack at a party on Saturday. At least this makes me feel better about it.
