I could have written this
I would still classify you as an introvert, because the activities that put you in the spotlight are the ones that you control - and can walk away from whenever you want.
In addition to never understanding how people can get excited about going to a party, I've never understood the question "aren't you lonely?" Duh....nooooo!
You start to wonder if we're a different species, after awhile.
