An introvert’s guide for people who want to make guides for introverts
I’ve read all the ‘survival guides’ written for the introverted personality. The holiday survival guides, the info-graphic guides, the business guides – and I’ve noticed a theme. They all tend to portray introverts either as fragile beings, snobs or aliens from another planet. While I understand these so-called guides are created in fun and with good intentions, I can’t help but feel they still subtly support the stereotypes surrounding introverts. I can’t also help but feel that they are serving to create yet another divide between people, and I, as a proud introvert, just don’t roll that way. We all are just people after all.
So, I decided to do the only logical thing at this point – make my own.
