Today Booking Through Thursday asks the following question:
Do you consider yourself an extrovert or an introvert?
This is a fairly easy question for me to answer. I would definitely consider myself to be an introvert, even though my work involves a fair bit of public speaking. I am very shy by nature and find it hard in new situations. This is probably why I like books so much. I find it hard getting to know new people, but am alright once I’ve met them a few times, which may make it hard for people to realize how introverted I can be. I don’t always see the need for constant talk or chatter and am very comfortable with quietness. I enjoy good conversations as well, but as long as it goes beyond meaningless chatter. When I had to choose college courses I usually looked for ones that involved as little group work as possible, especially having to share in a small group setting. I’d rather listen to the lecture, answer questions when necessary, read the text-book and complete the necessary assignments.
I’m comfortable with who I am and I’m sure those who are extroverted are as well. After all, the world would be a very boring place if we were all the same.
