    I just read this article

    http://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/ar...hing-life.html

    I can identify with all the five signs and a lot of what's in the article rings true. I can definitely take away something from it.

    EDIT: I apologise if I have offended people by implying that there is something wrong with being introvert. I did not mean it that way at all, I just wanted to highlight the advantages of being introvert and share a good article.

    Introverts, be proud of who you are.

    People only dislike the trait since it makes them feel uncomfortable. Human beings don't exist for the comfort of others.

    Yes, they do. Humans only exist to perpetuate their own species. If you comfort others, you are helping to continue the human race. Particularly if you sexually comfort others...

    lol.... no we do not, we live for ourselves. We don't live in order for others to be content or at ease.'

    People only dislike introverts since they lack the proper social skills to move on to somebody else. They also lack the social skills to acknowledge difference in people. Some people are less talkative/outgoing by nature. Reality shouldn't be an obstacle.

    I didn't mean for you to take it literally.\

    I wasn't being literal either.

    I don't need some article to tell me it's all right to be introverted, I already knew that. Most people are all right.

    All good for you if you know who you are and are very comfortable with the person you are.

    I just thought it an interesting article that makes me see things from another perspective and I wanted to share it on TSR.

    Well, I was going to tell you what INFP is, but maybe not now...

    I didn't mean it to be 'holier than thou', just that you don't need to be validated, you don't need to be told it's all right to be happy. Just ... be happy.

    People are who they are and, unless you're a psychopath, most people are all right and will be fine.
