I don't have a link. I just saw this in the new Watch Maga dank memes video. One of the protestors at a rally in Canada was carrying thi s sign. This is so hilarious and so true.

I don't know if I'm speaking for all introverts, but here goes.

We don't seek out leader roles as they're exhausting.

We can be effective leaders if we have to.

We can also be meaner than evil if it comes to it.

You really don't want the people that just wanted to be left alone getting involved.

Best way I have ever seen it put is this. Extroverts have solar panels. They soak up energy by being around others. Introverts need time away from others to plug in and recharge their energy.

I am very vocal, especially when I’m talking about something I’m passionate about. I taught at the college level for several years and my voice goes on forever. I still need “me” time away from others. I have to be alone with my thoughts and do the whole inner monologue thing. A good example of when I’ve had enough is that after being out in public for too long, my “filter” stops and I start hearing EVERYTHING. It becomes oppressive. I just have to get away. “Going outside for some air” helps a lot, but eventually I just have to go away for some “me” time.

Introversion does not equal shyness.

You have articulated our human condition perfectly! I can be a charmer, but being curmudgeonly suits me better. At least until "The best is yet to come" happens.. 😊

I say this all the time when I show up to volunteer for my Senate candidate. Takes a lot to get us out but watch out when we are!

Yeah, start making me feel like I am threatened/oppressed in my man cave and I'm raising holy hell.
