Introvert Cartoon of the Week


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 celebrating introvert talents (Sunday), the Introverts Blog Quietly (IBQ) weekly writing prompt (Wednesday), introvert cartoons (Thursday), 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. Exactly! “And Deacons, secretly pick a day to show up on an introvert’s doorstep, invite yourself into their living room, and unashamedly beg them to volunteer for Sunday School duty.”

  2. That’s a good one, Chris. My kids attend a wonderful uplifting church, and I truly love accompanying them, except for that dreaded moment when I have to turn in all directions and greet strangers around me. Smile! Make eye contact! Talk! Ackkk!

    Do you remember Susan Cain discussing that? How the new mega-churches put so much emphasis on group outreach and group participation? I never realized until I read her book that it’s one of the parts of any church that made me uncomfortable, even as a child – the expectation that I had to interact in ways that are very uncomfortable.

  3. Now that’s funny. And sounds just like me. So why don’t I fit into the category according to the quiz? I’m so ambiguous! Maybe that’s a good thing? Who knows?
    Still, hysterical.

  4. People in my previous church eventually got the point that I was not interested in perfunctory hugging, and would just wave at me. I’d wave back, then return to my daydreaming uhhh I mean story-writing.

    I play drums for the church I’m in now, so I’m sitting behind the kit during “Greet your Neighbor” time. It’s bliss! A person would have be dead set on being affectionate to navigate around that noise trap. I guess if I were an extrovert, I’d walk around and go to people myself… but I am not.
