If you’re an introvert, you value your alone time. You tend to think before you speak. You’d much rather socialize one-on-one than in a group. A phone call is probably your worst nightmare. But, most of all, you are silently strong.
It can be tough to prefer being alone in a world that values gregariousness and sociability. But take heart, quiet types: Twitter has your back. We’ve rounded up 50 of the most relatable introvert tweets we’ve seen this year.

At the end you you walk into a room where people are networking and everyone tries to get your information at the same time. Scariest experience of my life.— Introvert Life (@IntrovertLiving) October 6, 2019
