I’m an introvert.  I’d much rather stay in and watch a movie than go to a bar, go to a party, get really drunk, hang out with a huge group of people.  F that.  I’ve said before on this blog that I want to move to France someday.  The reason is because in Europe they value introversion over extroversion.  In this culture it’s the opposite.  In this country you’re expected to do certain things like have plans on New Year’s Eve even though New Year’s Eve sucks and someone always ends up in a fight.  Here, you’re expected to always wanna “go out.”  Well I don’t want to, almost ever.  I’ve always been that way, even before I had a massive stroke.  One good thing that came of this is that after getting sick, I certainly wasn’t expected to do that stuff anymore.  Introversion was forced on me – but I was OK with that.  I went to visit a friend recently and it was like 8 o’clock and she said “if you want to go in your room and be introverted, that’s OK.”  And I did.  🙂  HAHA, I love you Vicki.  If you’re introverted like me, that’s totally OK, introverts are much, much cooler.  Great talk about introverts.

  1. I thought I was an introvert until I moved to East Lansing. Now I’m sometimes considered the life of the party and can always be counted on to be willing to try anything.

  2. What a wonderful talk on TED. Interesting to see the standing ovation she got at the end of the talk.
