I identity with this so much. I grew up homeschooled and spent hours of alone time in my bedroom or the basement creating things and reading books. I was a very outgoing person when I’m socializing in spite of my deafness.
During my teenage years I was a rather impulsive extroverted person.
I learned how important the traits of introversion is and how I can benefit from them. I usually find myself to mess things up more when I don’t think first. My impulsiveness got me in plenty of trouble. I’m still in the transition of turning into a full introverted person but I’m actually liking it much better. I’ve never been really a fan of socializing for the sake of recharging myself, anyways.
