Seeing another discussion about how introverts can be shitty.
The thing I don’t get about the whole introvert/extrovert thing is why people endow it with more meaning than it should have. (Note: not referring to the extrovert on the post I saw who are rightly chastising introverts for invalidating their experiences with social anxiety)
Like it is an interesting why to conceptualize one part of our behaviour/personality, but pretty much nothing involving humans and our minds is that simple.
And thinking that it does leads to bullshit and ableist positions of ‘extroverts can’t have social anxiety’.
If your assumptions about people’s behaviour are resting heavily on an over simplistic heuristic, you need to rethink your approach.
People are more complicated than that. I promise.
