Away in my hiding spot

I was talking to a coworker this past week at a conference. Over our lunch in between what seemed to us like endless meetings and workshops we discussed our disdain for meetings, and for socializing. The evenings at this conference were filled with ample social time, and since I wore the red staff badge, I was required to attend and nod my head while people talked about the weather.

What we realized while talking is that introverts like us, hate small talk, and prefer quiet action.

It seems to be backed up by this story in the Atlantic.

Hi, my name is Wickwire, and I am and introvert.

Good reading today. I'm right there with you and your coworker. Outside I'm nodding my head too, but inside I'm screaming, "GET ME OUTTA THIS PLAAAAAAAAAACE! FOR THE LOVE OF GOD!"
