Today is World Introvert Day! Did you know that a common misconception is that introverts are shy? While many shy people may be introverts, the two are not the same. I do not consider myself shy, but I am definitely an introvert. It's more about the way my brain responds to external stimuli and how much or how little it requires to be healthy, happy, and functioning at its best. Introverts have enough internal stimuli that they can be fully energized just being alone, while extroverts need that external "noise" to remain stimulated.
This is a short post. I just wanted to share some of my favorite articles on introversion and a funny image I came across...
This one I just came across this morning: Who Intorverts Are (And Who They're Not)
Oh, and it turns out my job as a social media manger is a good fit for my introverted brain according to an article on Forbes' website listing The 10 Best Jobs for Introverts.
