Dateline: 9 December 2014
I’ve always been an introvert, and a fairly serious one. But only recently have I given it much thought. It started when I read Ten Ways Introverts Interact Differently With The World. Then I watched This Ted Talk with Susan Cain, author of the book, Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can't Stop Talking
Myth #7—Introverts are weird. Introverts are often individualists. They don't follow the crowd. They'd prefer to be valued for their novel ways of living. They think for themselves and because of that, they often challenge the norm. They don't make most decisions based on what is popular or trendy.
In reading about the qualities of introverts I came upon the statement that introverts tend to be more deliberate than extroverts. Well, no wonder I latched onto the The Deliberate Agrarian as the ideal title for my blog.
Like I said, I'm a fairly serious introvert. Another example of this is my lifelong dream to have a home-based mail order business. It's the perfect business for an introvert. And I don't have a business phone (introverts don't like to talk on the phone).
