Hi. I’m Chris. I’m an introvert. And, no, I didn’t draw this, just found it on the net. Look for my ongoing series debunking the introvert myths (Sunday) and introvert cartoons (Wednesday), plus anything else interesting that I find in the meantime. Come and share with like-minded introverts.
I saw this cartoon and had to laugh. Good luck getting introverts to a gathering. I guess you could draw people in the seats, each reading a book. That might be realistic, I guess.
My boss just called me to ask if I can come in to the office in a couple of weeks. Our team is done with a multi-year assignment and now we’re all being reassigned. The boss wants a going away party with all of us. Now, don’t get me wrong… this is a great team and I have enjoyed working with them. And I really like my boss, despite her love of parties. But go in and get all emotional about the gang being split up? Yikes! Horrors! Make small talk that isn’t work related? Oh, boy! She even tried to bribe me with gluten-free treats that she will bake herself. (She is a great baker.) When I was still waffling, she tried to play her best card… “I know everyone would love to see you!” OMG! That has to be the worst thing to tell an introvert.
I did find the perfect outfit for an introvert, though. I’m just not sure it will agree with our company’s dress code.
