I feel like an extrovert on the computer
As an introvert, I do not look to parties or social events for a good time. A large number of people overwhelm me. If I am forced to be with crowds, I will usually hang on the edge. There is just so much to process.
However, I feel much more expressive and free when I am on my laptop at home. In fact, I want to engage more with people on the computer than I want to in person. It frustrates me when others that I respect, admire, and consider friends do not post an update at Facebook or reply to one of my emails. I want to interact and share! Those comments and emails are meaningful to me.
I find typing very easy and communicating through a computer very natural. It is more controlled and I can review my words before I send them out. I check for spelling errors and I read it out loud so that the right tone comes across.
Any introverts feel the same way?
