My sister went to a workshop this weekend. She said the most affirming bit was when a woman came up to her and said:
"Excuse me. I hope you don't mind me asking, but are you by any chance an introvert?"
"Why yes! Yes I am," my sister replied. "Thank you for noticing."
"I'm an extrovert myself, but I watched you and could see you processing everything," the woman continued. "I mean, most of these people, well, I can tell they are extroverts. I just want to scream, 'Hay, OK, enough about you, shut up already and listen!'"
Ah, it's nice to be seen, recognized and valued.
