I am an introvert. Please don't put me on the autism spectrum
It goes on to say that you should probably say some things, but don't go too far - else you will break into their little bubbles.
Fucking hell. I am an introvert. Like half the fucking population, I tend to be more inclined to alone time and personal space. This also comes from having a mother who used to read my letters and always barge into my room. I like being alone. I can get much more lonely in crowds but if I'm by myself and reading a book - cool. If I go to a party, I am not eager to meet new people so much as interact with the friends that I already got. And don't ask me to plan an event or a party. I just don't like being the person in charge of other people or the person who is supposed to convince other people to come to any event or thing.
What does this mean? It means that I really should not go into sales. It means that I do spend a lot of time interacting with people online and in fact, I have many friends who I met online. I don't have a problem with interacting solely with people online. I don't feel anxious if I am not going out with friends or interacting with people. I work from home and it sometimes gets lonely and irritating but I have my cats.
It does NOT mean that I'm in a hamster ball. It does not mean that I should be handled carefully as if I am going to break if I feel my personal space is being violated. And since I naturally avoid being around crowds too long (mostly because it does not really make me feel comfortable to be around strangers) I can get away on my own - thank you.
So once again - Introverts can go to parties. Introverts can hang out with friends. Introverts do not live in hamster bubbles afraid that someone will try to engage them in conversation. Going to parties every night in bars with a bunch of strangers or talking about stupid shit like Kim Kardashian is another matter - which is why I filter that crap out of my FB page and LJ.
But that's pretty much it.
If you think that the cartoon applies to you, then you are either autistic or you have a serious sense of entitlement.
