Maybe Not As Weird As I Thought?

As most of you know, I am weird. I’m also a little goofy, well maybe I’m a lot goofy. I’m definitely quirky. I have things that bug me. I have things that make me crazy. Here for your perusal is a list of things weird about me.

  • I don’t like crowds
  • I’d rather sit on the end than in the middle
  • I like to be alone
  • I don’t like parties. Too many people
  • I don’t mind talking to a crowd, I just don’t want to meet them
  • It turns out I like people, I just don’t like meeting them
  • I told you I’m weird. Or so I thought. Then I found some interesting articles describing introversion. I discovered my weird aversion to crowds is actually a sign of introversion!

    It’s not that I am a wallflower or shy or just plain weird, I just need space. In the article about 23 secret signs of being an introvert, I have 18 of the 23 things. Can you guess which ones?

    I do take issue with the American Psychiatric Association wanting to classify introversion as a personality disorder though. I mean come on! If they’re going to say I have a personality disorder, they better classify extroversion as a personality disorder too! Extroverts are far more weird than introverts. Seriously, don’t we all have a personality disorder in some form?

    I’ll go with who I am. God knows what he was doing. πŸ™‚

    Psalm 139:13-14
    For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well.

    His… Michelle
    Philippians 1:20

    Tell me what you think? Are you an extrovert or an introvert?

    1. Weird. Someone sent me this same article(Huffington Post) Hmmmm. Thinking God is trying to tell me something. πŸ™‚ All but one. Love reading Mercy Ship blogs.

    2. Hahahaha…you know for sure that I am def an extrovert…lol…but I LOVE my introvert friend…oh, and I like to sit on the end too!

    3. I am definitely an introvert. I am able to share my life with strangers but not in “real life”. I too hate parties and crowds. I speak at functions often but resent meeting the people. We are kindred spirits.

    4. Ha Ha! I laughed so hard at some of those “tells”…it was like someone had been spying through the windows at me! I was 18 out of 23.

      • Haha! Me too. In hindsight, if you count my three minute marriage, I have 19 out of 23 since I think he might have been an extrovert then. Not sure what he is now?
