9 Signs you're an Extrovert trying to be an Introvert

Over my course of typing people and teaching them personality, I have more than come across my fair share of Extroverts insisting that they’re Introverts. For the most part, it makes for a great laugh as everyone else just rolls their eyes at the Introvert-wannabe. (as if being Introverted should be so coveted)

So just for fun, I have compiled a list of nine signs that you’re a wanna-be Introvert.

1.       You go around telling people how Introverted you are. 

2.       Posting a picture of nature on Instagram with a deep quote about stillness … and then checking it constantly for “Likes.”

3.       Telling everyone about how you’ve travelled alone before… with a whole bunch of strangers on Contiki.

4.       Insist that you are perfectly fine staying home on a Saturday night.. and a little part of you dies as you say that.

5.       Insist you spend a lot of time alone.. when you’re sleeping.

6.       Reading a book … so that you can discuss with everyone about it!

7.       Appearing socially uninvolved... because you’re having a massively exciting online group conversation on Whatsapp!

8.       Telling people how tired you are of parties and meeting new people …  after your 3rd party of the night.

9.       Having a meal alone, taking a picture of your food and showing everyone about how introverted you’ve become! 

Yet, no matter how introverted Extroverts want to be, you and I know that we love them and know the kind of fun only they'll bring to our lives!
