I finally took that Myers-Briggs personality test the other day after a lot of egging on from a friend of mine and it told me that I’m an INTJ which I guess means “Introverted, Intuitive, Thinking, Judging.”
Which makes sense to me. I’m pretty intuitive, especially when it comes to quickly realizing how bad I’ve screwed something up. I can’t stop myself from constant thinking, even if it’s about nothing in particular, and I’m always judging everyone.
But most of all, I am an introvert. Just as the people behind these posts clearly are.
39. Check it out
Please don’t bring attention to me, this is the opposite of what I wanted.
Self checkout is great for introverts until the machine breaks down and two employees have to come fix it while you wait.

38. I can dig it
It takes me about as much time to psych myself up for one anyway.
I’d say about 80% of the time I’d rather dig a 40-foot trench than make a single phone call. #introvertproblems

37. Pick me up
Oh, I’m sorry, you very clearly mistook the nature of this interaction.
The other day I went to a coffee shop. The barista was very nice, recalled the way I like my coffee, and chatted pleasantly about plans for the weekend. Clearly I can never go back there again #introvertproblems

36. Keep it cool
Ice makes drinks better and insulates the poles of our planet, let’s keep it around.
Ice breakers at seminars stress me out. I'm perfectly happy in my cold quiet corner.#INTJ #introvertproblems #introvertlife

35. A celebration
It’s January 2nd, apparently. So that we can all recover from the horrors of having to attend NYE parties.

33. Two out of three
Hey man, the system works.
I need three hours to get ready and two of those are me talking to myself into getting ready

32. Risk and reward
If I keep this up I may soon never have to speak to anyone again.
I was extremely social this weekend and as a reward I will not talk to anyone for the next 3 months. thanks.

31. Cute but deadly
Please don’t leave me, I’m small and very afraid.

29. Drop the beats
And yet somehow this does not stop everyone.
PROTIP: You don't even have to have anything playing in the headphones to get people to stop talking to you.

22. Space case
Please form an orderly line far away from me.

I like sweats, not sweating.

Are you kidding me?
