Introvert cartoons, a quiz, narcissism, blogging: Blog Roundup 18 #Introvert Inspirer
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.”

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.”

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.
