    Ugh, sometimes I hate being an introvert and have severe hearing loss when I have to use the phone.
    And I thought I had it bad - that makes it even worse

    Yep. Things suck when you're not able to hear very well.

    Welcome to the "wassat you sed" club. Seriously though you should try being profoundly deaf in one ear and with limited hearing in the other, living where the language is not your mother tongue and you have to take your hearing aid out in order to use the telephone as it is a wee bit difficult - nay, impossible - to lip-read when using the phone!

    If you talk to a cat they look at you as if you are way below their intelligence to even listen.
    However, when you talk to a dog they look at you with such admiration and really do seem to understand what you are saying.
    Even if it is a bit silly...
    ...they still think you are wonderful.

    I don't have a phone bill; I have a fiction bill...all those long distance reads. It's still cheaper than flying, though. And planes, planes means people, ​so many people...

    I return to join my kind!

    I awkwardly pause before every sentence in conversation. Half of the time I'm really deeply terrified and considering what to say, the other half I've just drifted into thought. This has given most people the impression that I'm a deep thinker, which is true but not as great as it sounds... So it goes without saying that a keyboard is very nice, as I have plenty of time to make 'drafts' of my conversation pieces, and revise anything before it comes out of my virtual mouth.

    Also, the key sign of being introverted obviously is that social interaction is draining, physically and emotionally. Phone calls, conversation and everything else means at the end of a long day around several people, I have a near-migraine and am very mentally tired from thinking what to say and moving the conversation forward without letting that introversion show...



    But the positive thing is that I'm a good listener! Not to someone who just babbles, (Or talks about conspiracy theory) but if someone honestly needs to talk I can listen to someone for hours. Hearing and understanding, or showing sympathy, is easy for me actually. As my personality type was the mediator, it's very true I hate injustice and everything sad... I like knowing I can help. Talking about problems and being that hugging shoulder is nice.

    But anything else? Uhg...
    Need advice? Or just some cheering up? PM.
    Or bug me on Skype. Any time I'm online.

    Planes? You mean those things that go up in the sky and are full of people? Well, they could be empty for all I care but I Will Never Get In A Plane Again.

    Eeeeek - 'tis nightmare time again.

    You know what's also horrendous for an introvert, being 6'5" white guy in the middle of rural Japan.


    When life gives you lemons... don't make lemonade. Make life take the lemons back! Get mad!
    I don't want your damn lemons, what am I supposed to do with these? Demand to see life's manager!
    Do you know who I am? I'm the man who's gonna burn your house down! With the lemons!

    Not being 6'5" tall, not being a guy and never having been to Japan, I have luckily missed out on that horror.
