It seems that despite any effort made by introverts across the globe, people are still having a rough time figuring out what sets an introvert apart from an extrovert. Being an introvert doesn’t necessarily imply that you’re shy or are afraid of interacting with others, but in some cases, what you’ve heard about introverts is totally true, and if you’re one, then you’ll totally get these hilarious collection of jokes.
Let’s Make Friends
Uh, no! As a rule, introverts don’t engage in social interactions unless there’s a perfectly good reason for it. Meaning, that unless it’s one of those privileged few that he or she considers a friend, you can go introduce yourself all on your own.
Follow The Leader
The whole point of going to a party is to mingle, which for an introvert is like Melanie Griffith at a silent retreat… impossible. So instead they follow the one person they feel close to, usually someone relevant, like a stray puppy.
Never ask an introvert if they want to go big or go home, because most of them would prefer the sanctity of their safe place instead of undergoing hours of torture socializing and interacting, you know, all those stomach-turning things extroverts love.
No Time For Goodbyes
Introverts fantasize about all sorts of ways they can leave an uncomfortable social setting, and if jumping out of a window isn’t appealing, cause you’re five stories up, then magic or slithering away will work just fine too.
When you’re an introvert, it feels like you’re always on the outside, imagining all the potential friendships you could start with people, but that’s when anxiety cements your feet to the ground, until you’re ready to make a run for it.
Friends Of The Family
Dealing with the parental units isn’t an option. They made you, but as far as their friends are concerned? No, thanks! You only came out of your cave to grab a few snacks until the guests leave and the nuclear fallout settles.
You only talk long enough to give him the address you’re going to. You don’t even make eye contact with them through the rear-view mirror, or say hi, and by the time you get to where you wanted to go, you just hand them the money, give them a fake smile, and run like you robbed a bank.
Text Me, Don’t Text Me
When you’re being ignored by your friends or acquaintances, you become the angriest little tyrant on the planet, but when everyone remembers that you exist, everyone in your contact list starts to become a nuisance and a target for blocking.
