When I first learned about introversion and extroversion, it really surprised me how much I fit perfectly in with the standard definition of introversion. I remember as a kid (and still today) never really being bored on long car trips or waiting for appointments, or anything that involves doing nothing for a long time. I think all the time and get lost in thought.I have also always been very independent, and have struggled when people are excessively needy of me. Not like a child or a pet, but a person my age who needs my attention - and for me, my attention is my all. I focus. I don't know how else to explain it without sounding conceited or haughty (see Myth #3, 4, and 8).
Have a great day!
