introverts/extroverts and bullying
I went to the bookstore and skimmed over the introvert advantage as someone recommended it to me. Good book by the way.
But what we all know is that extro's need outside stimulation, intro's don't because they have a lot of internal stimulation. If intro's are out partying or socializing too much, they get drained, because they have too much energies battling, and are depleted internally, whereas extro's need more. In short, intro's have more energy all inside them, thats why they think so much, ponder, imagine, and get lost in thoughts. Extro's do not have a lot of energy internally, thats why they need to chit chat, stay busy, and physically move around a lot etc.
So that makes me think of the bullies. They are so external and they feed off of that, so they make fun of people just by what they "see" externally. They don't think, they just run off at the mouth without being able to help it. It doesn't occur to them that it may "hurt" someone because they are not internal at all and do not think.
Since intro's are outnumbered three to one, we were the targets of this. So extro's found something about us stimulating and mouthed off about it, and us thinking so much, internalized it and globalized it, and ruminating over it. Its just two different natures and its not really "personal." Anybody agree?
