I will never truly know if I was born an introvert, if my introvert-ness was due to my upbringing or if it was a combination of both but regardless, I am an introvert.
I’ve wrote about this in a past post here.
One of the good things about being an introvert was that when the pandemic hit, my day-to-day life didn’t drastically change. I was already working from home a lot and since I don’t like shopping, I used to do my best to do all my errands on the same day to limit having to step foot in the mall or grocery stores. I enjoy the peacefulness of my cocoon and have never felt stir crazy being within my own four walls.
Don’t get me wrong, I can function well enough in a crowd of people or even strangers but not if I don’t have to.
Unless the people I am around are truly authentic, I find them to be exhausting.
Would you consider yourself an introvert, extrovert, or ambivert?
