I am an Introvert!

I've recovered from a childhood where I was pretty much afraid to talk (Can we say Catholic School?) but I'm still an introvert!

And proud of it!

A lot of people think introverts are inferior, and it's the extroverts that rule. Society does favor extroverts, but that's only because they're louder. 

I'm a firm believer that BOTH introverts and extroverts are necessary in our society. Yesterday I referred readers to this post, but I'm bringing it back today: Myers Brings: How do you find your energy? This post explains the differences between introverts and extroverts, and reminds us we need both in our world.

(By the way, both spellings are acceptable: extrovert and extravert.)

Here are some interesting things about introverts:
1. Introverts are good listeners.
2. Introverts are deep thinkers.
3. Most introverts are extremely creative!
4. Introverts choose their friends carefully.
5. Introverts can work independently.
6. Introverts learn by watching.
7. Introverts notice details.
8. Introverts aren't looking to be the center of attention.
9. Introverts are better at speaking to large groups of people than mingling with large groups of people.
10. Introverts make good teachers, writers, artists, and actors.

Here's an interesting article I found just yesterday about Introverts: Listen to the Power of Quiet People

About the picture: Six years ago, I did the most NON-introverted thing ever: I got on a plane to get together with other teacher bloggers than I had never met. I'd been in communication with many of these teacher-bloggers, but I'd never met them. I didn't decide until just a couple of days before the meet up, but I decided to go to Las Vegas (where I'd never been) and hang out with several people that were virtually total strangers for several days. I took a deep breath, got on the plane, and never looked back. It was one of the best decisions I've ever made, and I managed to make some life long friends in the process.

But it wasn't easy for me!

But I've learned that taking certain risks can be totally worth it!

This photo was taken when Debbie Clement of Rainbows Within Reach gave her keynote presentation at the I Teach K conference in Las Vegas that year. She invited her blogging buddies to come up on stage with her to share a song. 

If you scroll down on her blog, you'll find this picture on the left. Please notice I was the only one who followed directions about wearing polka dots. (See Day 2: I do the right thing.)
