    Everyone I work with thinks I'm an extreme extrovert. They are shocked when I tell them I spend the majority of my free time alone reading.

    Yeah, I’m just a gabber that people are shocked I do the same, until they know me and my love for books well. I read at least 2 hours a day. I like spending time with people, but when I’m done, I’m done.

    we had two sets of friends who went for a week+ long Caribbean sail where one set acted as captain and crew, the other set were the passengers. They came home and never spoke to each other again.
    I am not a serious person.

    I was able to get this free book on Audible: The Introverts Survival Guide, written by an introverted comedienne. Not sure I need the advice because I've navigated the waters of introversion for 71 years now, but it's kind of fun to listen to so that I don't feel I'm so alone (which is ironic in a way, because, as an introvert, I like to be alone )

    Thank you so much for the free audiobook link, @catherine. After trying the sample, I'm eager to listen to the rest for this coming weekend.
