Caring for Your Introvert

The psychologist Carl Jung introduced the term introvert to describe a person whose motives and actions are directed inward. Introverts tend to be preoccupied with their own thoughts and feelings and minimize their contact with other people.

I’m not sure it’s a black & white situation where either you are or are not an introvert, but I did enjoy reading Caring for Your Introvert. I can’t help but relate this back to why things didn’t work out, and maybe the article offers some clues about why I am the way I am.

Even if I am a bit of an introvert – I try to fight it. (Not very well considering it’s Friday night and I’m not at “Ice” or “The Corn Maze” – two places I was invited to go tonight.)

One reply on “Caring for Your Introvert”

I also am an introvert. But I don't think being an introvert means that a person thinks only of himself. That's baloney. I think introverts are way more apt to be polite in a conversation and listen to the other talkers. This is a draw-back when talking to an extrovert because to them this means they're smarter than you and should do all the talking. This is what is so tiring about them.
