As a shy introvert, I don’t think I’m better than others just because I’m watching from the side instead of gyrating in the middle of the dance floor.
One of the lies my social anxiety tells me is no one really wants to be around me.
INTJs have a reputation for being intelligent and aloof loners, but many of them put a high value on friendship.
I didn’t know I was a highly sensitive person for a long while. I just knew I was “different.” For me, this was particularly marked in social situations.
