9 Comics About Being An Introvert Show That We’re Not Alone (Unless We Want To Be)introvert-comic

Note: Promise to make you laugh.

Does a bumpin’ house party with every single one of your friends in attendance sound like the perfect Saturday night? For about half of you, the answer is a resounding “NOPE.”

Introverts make up between one-third to one-half of our population, and in this modern world of constant socializing, putting yourself out there becomes an extremely difficult thing — especially to those of us who prefer a lot of alone time. With that in mind, Aaron Caycedo-Kimura (a self-professed introvert) started INFJoe Cartoons.

“I was reflecting on how difficult growing up as an introvert and specifically as an INFJ (one of the 16 Myers-Briggs types) was for me,” Caycedo-Kimura told MTV News. “I wanted to encourage others like me, especially the younger ones who may feel out of place in this world.”

Take a look at some of Caycedo-Kimura’s best comics ….

 

What Kind of Introvert Are You?

Note: They missed my book! Before I take time to create a quiz of my own, let me know how YOU like this quiz?

Are you an introvert? It depends on which book you read.

Here’s a sampling of the various conceptualizations of introversion in pop culture [1]:

Like Extroverts, Introverts Can Also Be Prone To Narcissism

Note: We are all in good company.

A lot of people identify as introverts. But did you know that our understanding of introversion is pretty similar to something called covert narcissism?

As Science of Us explains it, covert narcissism is “all the entitlement and grandiosity most people associate with narcissism, minus the bluster.” Covert narcissists — we’re talking about the trait of narcissism here, not the personality disorder — “take things personally (especially criticism), believe they’re being underestimated and don’t love being bothered with other people’s problems.”

This is like introversion in that

Seven ways blogging improves your writing

Note: Blogging for introvert authors is a must.

Today, it seems that everyone is a blogger. Setting up a blog is simple. If your mother can set up a Facebook profile, chances are she will be able to set up a blog, writes Mia Botha.

So, if it is that simple, why are you not blogging? Not everyone wants to write about his or her life. An online diary is seriously not everyone’s cup of tea, but if you spend time online, you will notice not all blogs are personal diaries. Those, which are personal blogs, are well written and have compelling stories, and they are entertaining.

As a writer, you should be building an author platform, so if you don’t want to tell us about your session in the gym you can tell us about your books, your writing and what you are reading. Start building relationships with your future readers now.

If that is not enough motivation to get you blogging, consider these seven points:

 

What is your biggest either 1) introvert, 2) social media or 3) blogging/writing challenge?

  1. Not sure the test gave a correct result:-) It concluded I’m a restrained introvert. But it was fun doing it.

  2. Not sure about my results. Thinking Introversion. It is interesting how we think others perceive us. No one ever accused me of being an introvert

    Thinking introversion for me. I’d have to say I think it’s pretty accurate:) Loved the cartoon with her looking in the mirror. LOL I have a friend who thinks my most hysterical line ever was the day I blurted out, “I’m so sick of myself!!”

  5. I am reading the book “Quiet” by Susan Cain. Excellent read on introverts and extroverts and why we are what we are. I highly recommend it, if you haven’t read it.

  6. I love cartoon #6 because I can so relate to that. One of my pet peeves is when someone in mid conversation says oh she would love to talk to you and wham hands you the phone. You don’t even know who is in the other end. Wait. What?? So annoying.

    Patricia — the results of my quiz were “Scientific American site under maintenance.” Ha ha. I loved all the introvert cartoons. I’m an extrovert but loved the cartoon “I love being alone together.” I remember those delicious Saturday evenings when my husband and I stayed home, each of us reading quietly on our side of the bed. Couldn’t be better.
