a bit of both, depending on the situation I guess... regarding those myths:
Myth #1 – Introverts don’t like to talk.
Depends, but I'm a talker; both small talk and serious stuff. I prefer having someone around who's able to have a good conversation with, though.
Myth #2 – Introverts are shy.
Used to be, not anymore. Self-awareness overruled my shyness :')... sounds stupid, but it's true.
Myth #3 – Introverts are rude.
Myth #4 – Introverts don’t like people.
I have been raised with the following principal: 'everyone is welcome here, whether they're white, black, green or blue, as long as they behave'.
It's exactly like that... I like everyone to a certain extend and decide for myself who is important enough to cherish and who's not (= a bit
Myth #5 – Introverts don’t like to go out in public.
Not me, I'm close to never alone and I'm a real clubbing-person, although I take my 'silent moments'.
Myth #6 – Introverts always want to be alone.
Well, see #5
Myth #7 – Introverts are weird.
I guess... #sigh... stupid 'myth'... holds no ground whatsoever, since 'weird' is way to global.
Myth #8 – Introverts are aloof nerds.
Nah, although I'm very aware of inside feelings and how to express them well in a matter people won't be able to see through it too easily.
Myth #9 – Introverts don’t know how to relax and have fun.
Not me :')...
Myth #10 – Introverts can fix themselves and become Extroverts.
Beautiful... awesome myth to catogarize someone :')... anyway, I guess that would be true. I think it's a mindset anyway.
would this make me intro-/extravert? I don't know... Most people have some introvert cahracteristics as well as extravert ones. I don't think most
people are either one of them, but a mix of both depending on the situation.
