Introvert Cartoon of the Week

aarontcaycedokimura10Isn’t that a great idea?  What if we had a visual indicator to all of our friends, family and co-workers that it’s time to let us alone?

And here’s another one for those of you who have been going through a long, long winter:


Our resident cartoonist is INfJoe, who describes himself as “an INFJ joe amid extroverts, sensors, thinkers, and perceivers, and still trying to come to terms with it on a daily basis.”  I love his insight into all things Introvert.

Hi.  I’m Chris.  I’m an introvert.  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 also contribute to the new food blog Three’s Cooking, learning to cook from the heart, for the soul.

  1. How innovative! Please let me know when this indicator is available for purchase. The sooner the better because it’s only 10am, and I’m one unsolicited conversation away from retreating under my desk for the rest of the day. 🙂

  2. Really, really, really, really, REALLY like this one. Actually, would love it as an emoticon so I could use it when I receive party invitations. 😉 Much more polite way to decline.

  3. I’d love to have an indicator so my hubby would know when to shut up! Leave me alone! When I say I would just as soon have the TV off because I’m reading blogs – don’t ask me if i would prefer music, just turn the TV off! Sorry (didn’t mean to shout), I’m having a frustrating day with my extroverted husband.

  4. Love the idea of the visible battery energy plummeting! It’s how I describe my introversion to people…. Love people but they make me tired and if I was wearing something that showed my energy levels you’d see them go down as we talk however interesting the conversation is. It’s a helpful image for people…though hard to grasp still for the most full on extraverts! So actually having one on your forehead is great idea!

  6. Oh, MAN, do I want one of those! I am a stay-at-home mom, but with six children, most of them adult, various sils and dils, grandchildren, and even one or two friends, I spend my entire life being overwhelmed and/or telling people to go away. I love all of them, and want to spend the time, but I desperately need more time to recover from all of my wonderful family. An indicator, even one that was on/off would do me a world of good. It would at least cut down on the interactions that begin: ‘I know you are trying to rest, but…’

  7. Love this!
    As to not wanting to be noticed; what I have found is that I’m quite comfortable doing public speaking even to large groups and even with interaction after; what I really don’t like is when I’m asked to speak about myself. So long as the focus is on something I’m passionate about, no worries. Interesting stuff, isn’t it?
