I’m an introvert but I still get pissed off

I thought it might be interesting to revisit the introvert thing and in doing so found an interesting article,  so…lucky you.  In case you missed that glorious earlier post, here is the original link: http://www.iyampam.com/?p=362.  Don’t feel like heading over there? Ok I give you highlights right here (that’s my fake Greek accent from “my big fat Greek wedding” in case you didn’t recognize it):

To save my brain from having to recall introvert qualities, I found a site that lists them for me.  Marti Laney is author of the introvert advantage. She lists some interesting differences between introverts and extroverts here: http://www.theintrovertadvantage.com/being.html:

Introverts:
Enjoy time alone
Consider only deep relationships as friends
Feel drained after outside activities, even if they were fun
Good listener
Appear calm and self-contained
Think then speak or act
Extroverts:
Like to be in the thick of things
Relish variety
Know lots of people, considers lots of people friends
Enjoy chit-chatting, even to strangers
Feel stoked after activity
Speak or act then think OR think while speaking

I’ve been tested many times with the myers briggs type indicator (also found here: http://www.myersbriggs.org/my-mbti-personality-type/mbti-basics/) and I generally fall somewhere in the INTJ category.

INTJ
Have original minds and great drive for implementing their ideas and achieving their goals. Quickly see patterns in external events and develop long-range explanatory perspectives. When committed, organize a job and carry it through. Skeptical and independent, have high standards of competence and performance – for themselves and others.

So, I guess there are some advantages to being an introvert. So I guess I don’t hafta fake being an extrovert anymore. Like nerds, my day has come.

Like that little tidblit?  Visit the whole post again!

Who else is an INTJ you ask?  Well…Jane Austen (duh), Katie Couric (natch),  JFK (can see that), General Colin Powell and Michelle Obama (yeah baby!) so I’m in good company.

Now, where was i? oh yes.  I found an article in Psychology Today that says that even introverts (waving) get pissed off. Hells yeah we do! And, according to this article, here are the things you should say to an introvert to piss them off.  I have taken the idea and  put my own twist on it but you can find the real article here: http://www.psychologytoday.com/blog/the-introverts-corner/201006/how-piss-introvert)

1.       You’re stuck up; which is totally true cuz if I wasn’t I’d have diarrhea of the mouth like everyone else. DUH.  It just means I don’t have anything to say. Right now.  To you. Now run along.

2.      You don’t know how to have fun; yes I do. It just might not be the same kinda thing you find fun. Now run along, I’m people watching.

3.      You have nothing to say.  Ok this one kinda is like the first one, but REALLY. I have something to say. Either: a) your mouth wont stop talking long enough to allow me to speak or b) I’m formulating my words carefully and I’ll speak when I’m ready. And it’ll prolly be profound too. Course, you wouldn’t know cuz you wont be able to hear me cuz you’re running your mouth. Still.

4.      Oh, come on!  Seriously?   Is this junior high? When I tell you I’m not interested in participating in said “fun” event, this is your response?  Keep tugging on my arm and you’ll draw back a nub. If I wanna do it I will.  If I don’t, that’s ok too!

5.      Party Pooper!  Yep. I’m a party pooper.  That’s why you’re here bugging me to come to said “fun” event, cuz I’m such a bad time.  If I’m such a pooper, why do you want me?  Now shut your pie hole and go away. I’m having my own party.

6.      You hate people.  Nope. Not at all.  I just like them in small crowds.

7.      You’re not an introvert.  I may not be what YOU expect an introvert to be, but I am. (you’re prolly thinking of a hermit) Now run along.

Now I’m no expert but I’m thinking you prolly don’t wanna piss off an introvert. For two reasons: #1 cuz pissing people off is not nice and #2  we’re watching you. We know your weaknesses.
