How has Kate not showed up in this thread yet?
One thing I really like about all the introverts gathering on KP and here is that no one says “oh, you’re an introvert? But you don’t seem to have anything wrong with you” or “But you write long posts, it’s not like you’re shy or quiet”. Because we all know what being an introvert is (“recharging” by being alone rather than with other people, that’s all it is) and don’t need to wade upstream against the constant misunderstandings. I love that.
