Psychologist Laurie Helgoe, author of Introvert Power: Why Your Inner Life Is Your Hidden Strength, says that introverts do not enjoy small talk. This was hardly surprising considering that NO ONE likes small talk…
Introverts create more dopamine and dopamine-like substances simply by thinking deeply and using their imagination. This means that we can have as much enjoyment imagining sex with Kim Kardasian as an extrovert has actually having sex with Kim Kardasian… and we avoid the awkward pillow-talk afterwards.
Introverts LIKE rainy days… but what they like even more is IMAGINING rainy days.
Many people think all introverts are agoraphobic. Introverts are not afraid to step outside their house at all, provided they are going to their backyard or the garage…
Introverts don’t need to be away from all people all the time. They can spend an entire day with other people provided those people are quiet and that there is at least one wall between them and the introvert.
Introverts don’t usually have a lot of friends; however, they are fiercely loyal to the friends that they’ve invented in their minds.
You cannot expect to turn in introvert into an extrovert without plenty of cocaine.
An introvert needs time alone to recharge. If he doesn’t get that time, he might not be able to start himself up, especially on cold mornings.
A 2010 Salk Institute for Biological Sciences study showed that introverts, upon seeing a human face, react in much the same way as they do when seeing a tree or rock. Psychologists don’t know whether this means that introverts see people as just objects or that they really feel a connection to trees and rocks.
Not all introverts are shy, judging from the responses of those introverts asked about their shyness who were able to respond without throwing up and curling into a fetal position.
