I am an introvert. Did not realize that until I was in my thirty’s when I took the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator Test for the first time. Arguably, a borderline introvert.
So you can understand – growing up, I see people that are always the center of attention, life of the party, or also known as Mr. Popularity. All the things that I can not imitate even if I wanted to. Nor do I want to.
I am not an obvious introvert, have friends and am average sociable. Not being Mr. Popularity suits me just fine. Pleasing others seem too much work than just minding myself. Except when I must. When what others think matter.
Then I will put on my dancing shoes . . .
Do you know people who are always center of attention, people magnet, or Mr/Ms Popularity? Or maybe yourself? How does that feel?
