If you're an introvert, the world around you can often feel overwhelming.
Yes, you enjoy socializing, being with friends, and even being a leader at work — to a point. But when you get overstimulated, you just have to pull back to recharge.
You need more alone time more than your extroverted friends require, and when you hit the wall, you start to feel edgy, irritable, and foggy.
Does this mean there's something “wrong” with you? Absolutely not! Introversion is a normal and common personality trait, and introverts make profound and valuable contributions in personal and professional settings.
Consider the world-changing contributions of introverts like Albert Einstein, Abraham Lincoln, Bill Gates, Rosa Parks, Warren Buffet, Eleanor Roosevelt, J.K. Rowling, and Barak Obama.
