Why thank you so much, first off. :’) But I do agree with you…It’s not as if we’re completely different species, but I do have to wonder sometimes; when I look at the people I know, and then what the people who know them see, it feels like we’re talking about different people. And I think you’ve nailed it on the head; this is to help understand, not cause a fight over! Thank you!
Thank you very much. I’d have to agree with you actually; just because there’s a lot of people in the world doesn’t mean there’s always somebody willing to talk with you… And I’m not quite sure people get it. :/ As it is though, thank you for your time! :’D I hope you don’t mind sticking around; I’m getting the feeling that there’s about to be a huge amount of drama…
Oh, that still sounds like fun though! If you want to go out and teach, teach what you know! (Besides, just because a job’s introverted doesn’t mean that it has to stay that way. All depends on the person doin’ the job. C: )
Okay followers, since I’m tired, I must ask before I’m off to bed. What’s your MBTI?
Forty three followers when did this happen? As it is, thank you guys! :’D Submissions are open! (Please send in some it’s so lonely here)
First off, I’d like to say thank you. And you’re exactly right; there’s a lack of communication between introverts and extroverts alike, and something needs to be done about it, otherwise nothing will change. Once more though—thank you!
I don’t think they do exist, actually. I went to the public library today to see if I could dig anything up on extroverts at all. Turns out that the only book there is is Quiet. Not that that’s a problem or anything, it’s just that—after doing a bit more digging with MBTI in general—everything was about introverts. And that’s not fair to us; we’re people too. Why don’t we get our own books?
This is yet another reason I need help finding out positive information about extroverts.
We have 32 followers? :’D Thanks for staying!
(Also submissions are always open. Feel free to message me!)
You are more than welcome, fellow extrovert. And please, continue to rant; you’ve said what I don’t feel I have the guts to say. (:
when people post things about introverts
and make them out to be SO SPECIAL and have SUCH A HARD TIME
and then people reblog like: OMG FINALLY SOMEONE UNDERSTANDS!111!!!!
Being an extrovert is NOT ANY EASIER THAN BEING AN INTROVERT
I am pretty bored of seeing posts with introverts constantly being like NO ONE UNDERSTANDS MY INTROVERSION. Well I feel the same way about my extroversion.
Sometimes when I am alone for too long, it sucks! It sucks having to depend on other people to gather energy! Because I feel rude constantly barraging people to hang out and converse with! I wish I could gain energy from being alone, but I NEED to socialise and that can be a very draining thing to worry about. I have had anxiety attacks from needing to be around people so much, but have been too embarrassed to try and bother people for attention.
I also have heaps of introverted friends so I understand what they prefer. I don’t get offended when they tell me they just want to be alone. I see so many posts where extroverts are made out to be these horrible bad guys who just won’t stop asking questions and are constantly trying to include you in things and are always partying and being loud. SO RUDE.
Actually, just because I prefer to socialise and gain energy from social situations. Doesn’t mean I have to be socialising 24/7. Guess what, I like taking walks by myself and reading books alone too - SHOCK HORROR
SO to all the introverts out there! Try and take better care of your extroverts. Just because we recharge our batteries in different social situations, that doesn’t mean that we are completely different.
Maybe not exactly the way I would had phrased it, but this is legitimately how I—and most other extroverts on tumblr—feel.
We’re trying to understand you. Please try to understand us.
- Has anybody seen any research papers that take a positive light on extroverts?
- I’m going to change the blog background. Let me know how it looks?
- Would any one be willing to help me put together a bunch of research and watermarking the presentation for us, so we can present information?
Submissions are still open, guys! Don’t just leave us alone here!
I’m a very friendly extrovert, but people often get turned off because I’m “too intense.” I’m also extremely open, and people are appalled at me when I want to chat religion, sex or politics because I believe they’re critical parts of the individual human experience. I want to have people to hang out with and do fun, spontaneous things- fiancee and most preexisting friends are introverts- but new people never seem fond of me. Don’t get me wrong, I absolutely love my friends and my wife-to-be, but I need more excitement than they do, and it feels unfair to wrangle them into things I enjoy doing but that they may not.
I love everybody, but not everybody loves me. I feel like most people can barely tolerate me.

Ahh, first off, I’m sorry you’ve got that sort of trouble :c I suppose that it sounds like you could do a mix of a few things, if I think I understand your situation as well as I think I do. You could always try to tone it down a bit, as offensive as that sounds; it’s quite possible that the new people you meet are simply overwhelmed by your personality, but at the same time, you shouldn’t need to retreat so much that there’s not much of a personality to you. You can talk to your introverted friends a bit; based off of what I know about introverts (most of my friends and my girlfriend) is that they do enjoy communication, just not in huge groups, and not for a very long amount of time the way extroverts are used to doing. It still sounds as if you simply need someone to listen to you, however… Have you tried random chat websites? It may not be a strong build to a friendship in most cases, but you can talk to people who do enjoy to talk back (or troll, in the case of Omegle).
I hope this was of some sort of help to you.
