It often astonishes me to see just how different one person can be from another. As an introvert in a world dominated by extroverts, the sight of an extrovert just being himself (or herself) is often a wonder to me. Where they get the energy to go about excitedly partying, participating in long animated conversations and social activities in general, will always remain a mystery to me.

I like connecting and socializing with other people. But unlike most extroverts, I have a low tolerance threshold for such experiences. When I’ve reached this threshold, I feel a strong urge to just separate myself from all the noise. I just want to be alone and quiet. Any further activity in the social group is liable to bore me to tears.
