Excuse Me, But…

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.
