How to Kill an Introvert

(JHall Comics/Justin Hall)

You shouldn't kill us because we're quiet and probably won't get in your way. But if you must kill an introvert, then Justin Hall's methods are foolproof. There's only one thing worse than getting stabbed or poisoned: talking to strangers.

This misguided cartoon illustrates painfully shy people--to the point of neurotic. Introverts aren't necessarily shy. We enjoy our own company, hordes of loud networkers are annoying and tiring, so are people who have gatherings of their "friends" meaning anyone they ever encountered. We're deep and thoughtful and don't have the need to spout our beliefs every time we decide to talk. We choose the times when we want to be heard or known.

I guess this is where the spectrums of introvert come in. I'm an introvert, but I'm on the misanthrope side rather than the shy side. I have no problems with interacting with people, even strangers on short notice, but in the above three scenarios I'd probably tell them to get the f*ck out of my way instead of being polite about it.

The thing with the party doesn't work for me because it's likely that nobody would notice you moving to the other side of the party. The kitchen and lecture hall would kill though because you'd immediately become the center of attention.
