If you’re an introvert, you value your alone time. You tend to 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 being alone in a world that values sociability. 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.

Leader: “If you’re an introvert raise your hand.”
*Nobody raises any hands.
When you invite me to a party and I say “maybe” or “sounds like fun” or “let me check my schedule” or “I’ll totally try and make it” ... you should probably know that just means no. Even a “yes” sometimes means no. Good luck figuring that out.— Introvert Life (@IntrovertLiving) July 11, 2019

As a kid, a weekend with no plans is like torture. As an adult, a weekend with no plans feels like winning the lottery.— Shower Thoughts (@TheWeirdWorld) July 20, 2019
It's really hard to explain to a non-introvert how the day after an intensive period of socialising requires as much recovery allowance as three hangovers and running a medium to long marathon the day before #introvertproblems— 🌈Jessica May🌈 (@hugahufflepuff) July 27, 2019

I have perfected the art of seeming interested in a bland conversation while actually being zoned out.— Introvert Life (@IntrovertLiving) July 30, 2019
I’m at that age where there’s solidarity in canceled plans. none of us are mad or upset—FOMO is no longer a thing. It’s more like, “I respect and honor your decision to stay in. I think I might do the same.” I guess you could call that FOGO—fear of going out. Im FOGO years old.— Ki (@uhkiea) August 2, 2019
