This Is ME!

When I took the Meyers-Briggs test (It’s a psychological test that rates you on four scales to show some basic personality traits to try to help you with career choice), I didn’t have a single extraverted trait.  It rates you on a sliding scale, for lack of a better term.  I’m about as introverted as you can get and still be on the same plane of existence.  (Though my husband might occasionally argue about my claim that I ALWAYS exist on this plane).  Anyway, I found out that most of the world is made of extraverts, and that there are many books written on how introverts can fit into an extraverted world.

I always knew I didn’t belong, but I always kind of thought it was because my time traveling parents left me behind when they went back to 1842.  I didn’t realize that it was just my personality to feel a little out of step.

One of my favorite things about Facebook is reading articles that my friends have posted.  One of my friends led me to this great article about Introverts.  The author of the article explains that introverts’ brains actually work differently than extraverts’ brains, and explains why.  The author also posts “myths” about introverts that are as humorous as they are accurate.   The links below are to the original article and also to more information on the Meyers-Briggs Type Indicator.
