Thank you for writing and posting this.
It is good to hear I am not alone. You described me:
“Did you know I’m the friendliest, chattiest introvert you’ll ever meet? I’ll introduce myself to strangers. I’m happy to attend events where I know no one and I can make friends with your throw pillow.
After three hours of social interaction, the light inside me turns off. I need to sit somewhere quiet, by myself. It took me years to realize this about myself — I wasn’t just ‘tired’ or ‘in a weird mood.’ I’m introverted.”
The whole article was outstanding.
