Are you an Introvert?

I consider myself as an introvert, without basis from professionals though. Why? Because I really felt uneasy if someone is looking at me. When I'm doing something I need to be alone. I don't like to talk in front of many people. It's fine for me to be alone with my earphone. I don't like going outside. I prefer staying at home and sleep. It's not that I can't be on the crowd. I just prefer to be in a small crowd. I'm not a show off person. I seldom chat my friends on facebook, even my close friends. I find it boring having a "not so" important conversations. I don't know exactly how to express my feelings to others (girls). Maybe, blogging is one way.  Yah, I choose my friends. I can count them on my hands.

Why I'm posting this? What is this all about? You might laugh. I just want to share what I have read from Owl City's Blog. The 10 myths about INTROVERTS:

Myth #1 – Introverts don’t like to talk.
This is not true. Introverts just don’t talk unless they have something to say. They hate small talk. Get an introvert talking about something they are interested in, and they won’t shut up for days.
Somehow, I do agree with this. I don't talk to much if I'm not interested on the topic. But you find me talking if it's about anime, Japan & online games.

Myth #2 – Introverts are shy.
Shyness has nothing to do with being an Introvert. Introverts are not necessarily afraid of people. What they need is a reason to interact. They don’t interact for the sake of interacting. If you want to talk to an Introvert, just start talking. Don’t worry about being polite.
I'm shy at the same time an introvert. What the...but I'm not that shy today.
Myth #3 – Introverts are rude.
Introverts often don’t see a reason for beating around the bush with social pleasantries. They want everyone to just be real and honest. Unfortunately, this is not acceptable in most settings, so Introverts can feel a lot of pressure to fit in, which they find exhausting.
What the...I don't like arguments, senseless arguments.

Myth #4 – Introverts don’t like people.
On the contrary, Introverts intensely value the few friends they have. They can count their close friends on one hand. If you are lucky enough for an introvert to consider you a friend, you probably have a loyal ally for life. Once you have earned their respect as being a person of substance, you’re in.
Of course not, I love Ai Otsuka so much. JK. Yah, I have few friends, without close friends.

Myth #6 – Introverts always want to be alone.
Introverts are perfectly comfortable with their own thoughts. They think a lot. They daydream. They like to have problems to work on, puzzles to solve. But they can also get incredibly lonely if they don’t have anyone to share their discoveries with. They crave an authentic and sincere connection with ONE PERSON at a time.
Not all the time. When doing something I want to be alone. It's ok for me though if my family will have a vacation and they will leave me alone at home.
Myth #7 – Introverts are weird.
Introverts are often individualists. They don’t follow the crowd. They’d prefer to be valued for their novel ways of living. They think for themselves and because of that, they often challenge the norm. They don’t make most decisions based on what is popular or trendy.
No one in world is weird. We just don't understand them.
Myth #8 – Introverts are aloof nerds.
Introverts are people who primarily look inward, paying close attention to their thoughts and emotions. It’s not that they are incapable of paying attention to what is going on around them, it’s just that their inner world is much more stimulating and rewarding to them.
It's not me. I don't agree with this. I'm sensitive to the people around me because I want to have a peaceful environment.
Myth #9 – Introverts don’t know how to relax and have fun.
Introverts typically relax at home or in nature, not in busy public places. Introverts are not thrill seekers and adrenaline junkies. If there is too much talking and noise going on, they shut down. Their brains are too sensitive to the neurotransmitter called Dopamine. Introverts and Extroverts have different dominant neuro-pathways. Just look it up.
Well, being alone is relaxing. You have nothing and no one to worry but yourself.
Myth #10 – Introverts can fix themselves and become Extroverts.
A world without Introverts would be a world with few scientists, musicians, artists, poets, filmmakers, doctors, mathematicians, writers, and philosophers. That being said, there are still plenty of techniques an Extrovert can learn in order to interact with Introverts. (Yes, I reversed these two terms on purpose to show you how biased our society is.) Introverts cannot “fix themselves” and deserve respect for their natural temperament and contributions to the human race. In fact, one study (Silverman, 1986) showed that the percentage of Introverts increases with IQ.
I don't know how. I'm being like this. Thanks for reading this long post.
