Re #20 - Dr. Seuss - I read somewhere that he didn't even like kids. No idea whether it's true or not.

I think quiet people tend to be observers. I'm shy until I get to know someone. Then, not so much. :)


I would say I am an introvert. I don't really like going out all the time and partying every Saturday night. I just prefer staying at home and throwing a movie marathon. :) But yeah, just because I like chilling at the comfort of my own home doesn't mean I am already a lazy person and unproductive. I always make sure that my time and effort would be put to good use.


I love this as I'm a big introvert! I always get slack for it, but that's just who I am as a person. I can't help it. I'm very uncomfortable in social situations and would rather just be a homebody. I like reading lists like this, it makes me feel better about who I am as an introvert!


Thanks for this. I'm shy and rather quirky so I worry that this will impact my work goals. I'm realizing though that it won't really matter as far as working on a website. That is the one good thing about the Internet, can communicate with people virtually. Also, I have heard the same thing about Dr. Seuss not liking children at all.
