Ok then guys, for those of you who answered, would you be able to tell me what entertains you? Entertainment in society doesn't seem to include
sitting in silence listening to music or reading, and most of the time, introverts are unfairly seen as extremely boring, which is a great
misconception and an introvert at a young age is usually discouraged from engaging in activities which secludes them from others, and are often always
forced to participate in group activities.
I find that education systems in early childhood seem to try and put the scare into an introvert to force them to change, and make children think that
what they are doing is wrong, that being by yourself educating yourself, entertaining yourself or making yourself happy by being by alone. They will
often give children with an introverted mind labels that can usually appear in school reports, and make the parents of these children think that their
child is impaired and hindered in some manner.
Or at least that happened to me, anyway. I always thought that by being by myself I was doing something wrong. How can keeping yourself happy by
yourself be possibly bad? You don't need to be in with a group of people exchanging anecdotes to be "normal".
