Contrary to what some might think, introverts aren’t misanthropes. In other words, we don’t hate people. Due to a biological difference between introverts and extroverts, introverts get more drained by socializing than extroverts do. In fact, too much socializing can easily result in an introvert hangover, which is when introverts feel physically unwell from overextending themselves socially.
If you’re an introvert, you know the struggle is real. And when your energy levels hit rock bottom, you just can’t people anymore until you get some downtime — that’s the very meaning of an introvert. Here are 19 introverts who have done just that. Can you relate?
