I saw this somewhere on Pinterest and was intrigued:
I’m an extreme introvert and have been irritated by extroverts for much of my life. But one day I realized that God made them that way for a reason, so I got over it. And not a moment to soon, because I married an extreme extrovert, and now have two children displaying decidedly extroverted tendencies.
I have come to appreciate extroverts and their place in society, and have decided to share my appreciation for them in list form (forever sealing my status as an introvert):
The Top 10 Reasons I’m Grateful for Extroverts
10. Somebody needs to be the life of the party, and I’d prefer that it not be me. Extroverts are more than happy to take on that role.
9. When I’m not feeling chatty, an extrovert is more than willing and able to take up the slack in our conversation.
8. Not all extroverts are funny (tragically), but the ones that are provide comic relief during uncomfortable situations.
7. Every party needs an extrovert or it fizzles into a gathering of introverts surfing the internet on their phones.
6. People-watching is much more exciting when extroverts are present being extroverted.
5. Extroverts draw attention to themselves, so no one notices when I leave a party early because I just can’t take being around all the people
4. Extroverts like hosting parties, which means that I don’t have to.*
3. Extroverts are nice to have around when any sort of announcement needs to be made in front of two or more people.
2. Extroverts draw attention to themselves, allowing us introverts to be left alone!
And the number 1 reason I’m grateful for extroverts:
1. Extroverts will never allow this country to degrade into a society where everyone stays home alone and interacts with others only online
*This doesn’t work nearly as well when you’re married to the extrovert at the party.
