A teenager submitted this question. She’s great to be with and mature and a good listener, but next to more flamboyant people she feels pretty boring!
Ok, so i’m 16 and i’m a total introvert… i’ve always noticed how after being around lots of people i just needed be alone for awhile and how i just love deep convos rather then short chitchat but i always didnt know why and i really thought i was the only one like that – until i discovered the whole introvert & extroverts concept and then i felt more confident to know its a personal trait that alot of people have!
well it seems my whole family are extroverts and the ones that are introverts are not as much as me and all my friends are the “life of the party” types and i just feel so boring and “prude” to them and i just i dont want to change how i am but i do want to seem more appealing, i guess? and i just how all the other kids in my family are extroverts and it seems everybody wants to hang with them from my family to their friends and when my friends do ask to hang with me, i feel its only cause they say im such a great listener and they just someone to vent to and they say im “mature” but they never just say omg had fun with u or i miss hanging w/ u they just say miss u and i dont know i just feel loved for me, i jsut feel loved for what i do and how im supposively easy to talk to and a mature kid… help
