I was talking to some people that I know, and they mentioned that one of my (introverted) friends was so quiet. To be honest, I almost started laughing out loud, because she was never quiet around me, and the two of us could talk for hours about interesting topics.
But it made me realize personally, that its only when I am 100% comfortable with someone, that I can share all of my personality. And it was the same way with my friend. We were so close that it was normal to talk for hours, and laugh about random stuff together. We even felt comfortable to sing in front of each other.
But in front of other people, we do seem quiet and more withdrawn. Unfortunately, a lot of people seem to accept that that is all there is to us. But the truth is, is that all introverts are incredible interesting with rich inner lives and a wealth of ideas, passions and interests. My close friends know this about me, and honestly I’m not concerned with being best friends with everyone.
Has anyone else experienced this? How do you react differently around different people?
