10 Excuses Introverts Make
I've written about introversion before, and there are some high-quality lists from other contributors on this site on the topic you should read - notably from @stevewinroad (https://notepd.com/idea/10-things-you-didnt-know-about-introverts-8y55p) and @MrOTG (https://notepd.com/idea/7-reasons-why-an-introvert-can-be-a-good-salesperson-vq56s).
This particular idea list is a departure from the typical introversion discussion. It was easy for me to write as I have made these excuses more times than I could possibly count.
Introverts indeed require a greater energy recharge than extroverts, and therefore our decisions are often colored by this requirement. However, because we often rigidly identify as introverts we think people will simply understand and accept our quirks because, hey, we're introverts - as if being introverted gives us a pass to be less than we are capable.
I think it's possible to take that identity too far which ultimately can restrict positive growth and negatively affect our relationships.
