Caring for Your Introvert – Jonathan Rauch – The Atlantic:

“The worst of it is that extroverts have no idea of the torment they put us through. Sometimes, as we gasp for air amid the fog of their 98-percent-content-free talk, we wonder if extroverts even bother to listen to themselves. Still, we endure stoically, because the etiquette books—written, no doubt, by extroverts—regard declining to banter as rude and gaps in conversation as awkward. We can only dream that someday, when our condition is more widely understood, when perhaps an Introverts’ Rights movement has blossomed and borne fruit, it will not be impolite to say ‘I’m an introvert. You are a wonderful person and I like you. But now please shush.'”

Funny and insightful. As a closet introvert who plays extrovert very well, I can definitely sympathize with his arguments.

Introverts of the world: UNITE! Or not, if you don’t feel sociable.

Well, Darn

Doing research this morning on taxes for Erin’s new business and I came across this:

Who’d have known? This is really going to put a damper on members of Congress when they fill out their income tax return.
