20 Jokes That You'll Totally Understand If You're An Introvert

Via Aaron T. Coyvedo-Kimura.

Introverts are defined in two ways; "a shy, reticent person," or "a person who is predominantly concerned with their own thoughts and feelings rather than with external things." That's a fancy way of saying that some people prefer to spend time by themselves and have to force themselves to go out and be social, whereas the extroverts of the world crave human interaction and contact. At your average house party, you'll find the extroverts holding court in the middle of the action, regaling fellow revelers with their latest tales of traveling, dancing, chatting, and basically taking a big old bite out of life. Conversely, you'll find the introverts talking quietly to a trusted friend, bonding with the resident pets, or just standing around awkwardly, wondering when it would be socially acceptable for them to go home.

On the internet, it's easy for social introverts to maintain their private "me" time while also being somewhat social. Introverts love the internet too, and can easily log off whenever they feel they've had enough interaction for one day. If only it were so easy in real life!

There are tons of funny memes on the web that seek to illustrate what it's like to be an introvert in an extroverted world. Do you tend to be someone who needs alone time after being out in a crowded place for a while? If so, you're going to read these jokes and say, "Wow... same!" Check them out.
