For people who say they just want to be left alone, introverts sure like talking about being introverted. Maybe that’s just because they thrive best on the Internet, posting away in solitude, not having to hear the screeching chatter of the sociable. But introverts do socialize enough to know they don’t like it, it seems, particularly because they tend to get a lot of the same sorts of questions about their behavior and preferences when out in public.
Using the hashtag #StupidQuestionsForIntroverts, folks are sharing exactly why they don’t like to go out, talk to people, or make eye contact.
With a list of attributes like that, it’s surprising anyone is still trying, but maybe these answers will discourage extroverts from doing that anymore. Just kidding. As if you could discourage an extrovert from doing anything smdh.

Antisocial: I refuse to socialise
Lack of social skills: I can’t socialise
Shy: I’m afraid of trying to socialise
Introvert: I don’t feel the need to socialise
Know the difference!#StupidQuestionsForIntroverts

“Why don’t you want a 50th birthday party?”
You mean, why don’t I want 30 random people in my perfectly empty home, insisting on making me centre of attention, doing dancing to music I hate, and engaging in small-talk while I die inside? #StupidQuestionsForIntroverts
