Being an introvert can (obviously) be a very lonely existence.
Every single social interaction, whether it’s a phone call or a in-person meeting can really drain the life out of you.
In this article, introverts took to Twitter to vent about what questions annoy them the most.
Let’s see what they had to say.
1. Absolutely not.
“Can we jump on a quick Skype call?”
NO. We can email back and forth 14 times like civilised humans in pyjamas. #StupidQuestionsForIntroverts

2. I’m just pretending.
“You don’t seem like an introvert?”
No, I don’t, fool. I’ve had forty years to learn to pretend to enjoy the company of other humans. I can fake a few things quite well. #StupidQuestionsForIntroverts

3. It’s all an act.

4. Just let it ring.
Them: "Your phone is ringing."
Me: "I don't recognise the number, and I am not expecting a call…"
Them: "So why don't you answer it and find out?"#StupidQuestionsForIntroverts pic.twitter.com/BFJfAfajLM

6. Actually, it’s exactly what I wanted.

7. Time to recharge.
Since #StupidQuestionsForIntroverts is trending, a reminder:
Introversion is just a question of how you recharge. Introverts need quiet alone time to recover their energy. pic.twitter.com/BqKpWF0yBp

8. Pretty much ruined everything.

9. Not gonna happen!
“Want to meet up for the second day in a row?”
Introvert rule: Approx 24-48hr recharging time required after social engagement involving any of the following:
a) people you don’t know
b) more than three people
c) loud or crowded environment#StupidQuestionsForIntroverts pic.twitter.com/8Eg7QJs2Rx

10. That’s a firm “NO”.
"Why don't you want a 50th birthday party?"
You mean, why don't I want 30 random people in my perfectly empty home, insisting on making me centre of attention, doing dancing to music I hate, and engaging in small-talk while I die inside? #StupidQuestionsForIntroverts

11. Why are you so quiet?
The worst question: "Why are you so quiet?"
Answer: because I don't like talking if I have nothing to add and I don't like interrupting people.
If I tell them why, they've already stopped listening or decided to tell me why I'm quiet.#StupidQuestionsForIntroverts pic.twitter.com/6SOWifRz9t

12. Time to hyperventilate.

13. A different kind of fun.
'Don't you know how to have fun?'
Of course I do, fun is reading books underneath a fleece blanket with a cup of chamomile tea while the cat is purring on your lap.

14. Need a good excuse for this one.
Me: makes plans with people
Also me: Immediately starts scanning my internal excuses rolodex for the perfect out.

I think I’m kind of on the edge of being an introvert, which can be challenging in its own right.
How about you? Do these tweets speak to you?
