"I'm an introvert. You are a wonderful person and I like you. But now please shush."

Many people find me to grumpy and distant when they meet me. I think I’m going to start carrying around copies of this article to hand to them. I’ve already tried it with one extremely annoying extrovert. Unfortunately she seemed completely oblivious to the actual meaning of what she was reading.

While on the subject of owner’s manuals, here is my companion manual. It’s meant more for your significant other, but combined with the first it manages to cover most of the essentials. So remember, if you see me out somewhere, I’ll be the curmudgeonly, nerdy introvert sitting in the corner people-watching because I decided that understanding the social dynamic of the party was far more interesting than participating in it. And if you decide to come over and talk to me, try to have something interesting to say. I already know what the weather is.
