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.

How to call an introvert— Michelle Keener (@MKeenerWrites) June 27, 2019
The day before: Text that you will call tomorrow & explain why (so we have time to prepare).
3 hrs prior: Text a reminder.
2 hrs prior: Text a funny gif.
1 hr prior: Text an emoji.
Make the call.
Leave a voicemail.#introvert#introvertlife
last week a friend canceled our plans because it “suddenly got really windy” and i’ve never respected anything more— steph (@stephsstone) May 3, 2019
Why did the introvert cross the road?— Introvert Life (@IntrovertLiving) June 13, 2019
To avoid someone they kind of knew, but they believed that person hadn’t yet seen them so it wouldn’t be awkward if they crossed at that exact moment in time, therefore avoiding having to say hi or perform some awkward kind of head nod.
Me in an elevator:— kamya (@ShethiaKamya) June 23, 2019
Oh hi there's another human here
I should say something when I leave
~repeats say: 'have a good one' in my head~
Silently steps out hoping my psychic good vibes will work in place of actual words #introvertproblems
not sure if this is an introvert thing but some days I come home SO incredibly exhausted from an entire day out and although my body feels like it's about to just collapse, I still refuse to sleep because I haven't hung out with me yet— mariri 🌻 (@marissavoo) June 29, 2019
Ask yourself first " is this textable?". I would rather read 3 pages as to take a call. 😑😑— ✨🐑✨ ☆ (｡◠㉨◠｡) ❤️ (@Vinya85) June 23, 2019
As an introvert, I get super happy when anyone texts me before I text them, even if it’s a close friend.— Shower Thoughts (@TheWeirdWorld) June 18, 2019
Why does everyone force introverts to be talkative and leave their comfort zone, but no one forces extroverts to shut up to make the zone more comfortable?— SMRT Feedback by the Vigilanteh (@smrtsg) July 1, 2019
We gave the cab driver a good tip because he didn’t try to make small talk the entire ride from la guardia to the hotel. #introvertproblems 😬— Doc✈️ 🍎🌈 (@DocWhatever) June 27, 2019
