I am an introvert blessed with extroverted social skill & people keep getting it confused!
Updated: May 21
When you're building your website and the page starts suggesting ways to increase your visibility so more people can find you (and contact you) * it gets really aggressive and keeps at you about publishing your website. So, your introversion kicks in hard; you start having ghost heart palpitations at the thought of MORE visibility; then, you remember you said you would straight axe all your FB friends if their numbers increased anywhere past 100. In an instant, you realize you now have almost 200 FB friends 😳 (gulp). *update. It's 2021. I still don't have FB. Tears. Of. Joy.
For all of the people who keep insisting I'm a huge extrovert, I will reiterate - I am an ambivert (I am convinced it's out of necessity) birthed out of a deep rooted introversion, like a 12lb breeched birth being pulled out by a lumberjack! It was a pain getting me out; and, although I have had to adjust being out (and I do it very well, thank you), I am constantly seeking the solitude that recreates what I had when I was in - by myself, quiet, and well, by myself ;-) You want me to go out with you and 20 people? No problem! However, don't get salty when I disappear on you for 3 days afterwards!
