If you’re an introvert, you likely value your alone time. You think before you speak. You’d much rather socialize one on one than in a group. A phone call is probably your worst nightmare. But most of all, you are silently strong.
It can be tough to prefer to be alone in a world that values boldness and extroversion. But take heart, quiet types: Twitter has your back. Each month, we round up spot-on tweets that capture what it’s like to be an introvert. Scroll down for our latest batch.

I am such an introvert. I can go into a bar and tune everything else out. Hardly worth going to a bar.— Norman Buckley (@norbuck) August 26, 2018
Parenthood means there are never introvert days where I can choose not to talk to anyone.— Lady K (@Coppertopmpls) September 3, 2018
When its been more than an hour since you've ordered but you prefer to wait for another hour than talk to the waiter again#IntrovertProblems— Kingsley Webb Ko (@kingsley_ko) August 28, 2018
I'm getting ready to go to a party. Would it be rude to bring a book and sit in the corner and read while there? My plan to avoid conversations is to tell people I'm a horror author. #introvertproblems #IntrovertLife #introvertproblems— Ezekiel Kincaid (@ezekethefreak) August 25, 2018
Me: my phone says I have no service and none of my texts are coming or going. I should probably call and see what's up— L to the B (@lesleysbrown) August 11, 2018

I have an unplayed voicemail on my phone that's three days old and requires a response. That little red notification thing doesn't bother as much as the thought of having to call and talk to someone. #introvertproblems— Thomas Bolin (@Scaevola67) August 2, 2018
There are no scarier words to an introvert than “can we set up a quick call next week?”— Mark Brown (@britishgaming) August 31, 2018
