I found this really interesting and can completely relate. Maybe people will understand us introverts better after reading it.

Myth #1 – Introverts don’t like to talk.
This is not true. Introverts just don’t talk unless they have something to say. They hate small talk. Get an introvert talking about something they are interested in, and they won’t shut up for days.

Myth #2 – Introverts are shy.
Shyness has nothing to do with being an Introvert. Introverts are not necessarily afraid of people. What they need is a reason to interact. They don’t interact for the sake of interacting. If you want to talk to an Introvert, just start talking. Don’t worry about being polite.

Myth #3 – Introverts are rude.
Introverts often don’t see a reason for beating around the bush with social pleasantries. They want everyone to just be real and honest. Unfortunately, this is not acceptable in most settings, so Introverts can feel a lot of pressure to fit in, which they find exhausting.

Myth #4 – Introverts don’t like people.
On the contrary, Introverts intensely value the few friends they have. They can count their close friends on one hand. If you are lucky enough for an introvert to consider you a friend, you probably have a loyal ally for life. Once you have earned their respect as being a person of substance, you’re in.

Myth #5 – Introverts don’t like to go out in public.
Nonsense. Introverts just don’t like to go out in public FOR AS LONG. They also like to avoid the complications that are involved in public activities. They take in data and experiences very quickly, and as a result, don’t need to be there for long to “get it.” They’re ready to go home, recharge, and process it all. In fact, recharging is absolutely crucial for Introverts.

Myth #6 – Introverts always want to be alone.
Introverts are perfectly comfortable with their own thoughts. They think a lot. They daydream. They like to have problems to work on, puzzles to solve. But they can also get incredibly lonely if they don’t have anyone to share their discoveries with. They crave an authentic and sincere connection with ONE PERSON at a time.

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.

Myth #8 – Introverts are aloof nerds.
Introverts are people who primarily look inward, paying close attention to their thoughts and emotions. It’s not that they are incapable of paying attention to what is going on around them, it’s just that their inner world is much more stimulating and rewarding to them.

Myth #9 – Introverts don’t know how to relax and have fun.
Introverts typically relax at home or in nature, not in busy public places. Introverts are not thrill seekers and adrenaline junkies. If there is too much talking and noise going on, they shut down. Their brains are too sensitive to the neurotransmitter called Dopamine. Introverts and Extroverts have different dominant neuro-pathways. Just look it up.

Myth #10 – Introverts can fix themselves and become Extroverts.
Introverts cannot “fix themselves” and deserve respect for their natural temperament and contributions to the human race. In fact, one study (Silverman, 1986) showed that the percentage of Introverts increases with IQ

Somecards make me laugh and laugh and laugh and laugh and laugh…Do you have any favorites not listed here? Post in comments. They also have a “Create Your Own” feature. Send me any cards you make and I’ll post the best one’s here. I will do a few myself I think.

These are from cards that are available now.

My bestie and I just had this convo the other day!

This I can relate to but lets face it, I’m more than slightly funnier.

That would have to be someone reeeeaalllly special.


KEXP and Sub Pop just released this great video of “The Head and the Heart” performing on Record Store Day.

“Fans lined up and filled both locations to capacity, (800 fans at Easy Street and 450 at Sonic Boom) with lines outside both stores to eager to see Seattle’s fastest rising band. Working closely with the folks at KEXP to capture these performances we now present you an insider look into a day in the life of Seattle’s own The Head and the Heart.”

This young band has hit the ground running and are taking over the Seattle scene. The band is still in its toddler stage at 2 years but they’ve been a whirlwind and it won’t be stopping anytime soon. From the get-go when my buddies at Sub Pop sent me their first single I was hooked. Check out this concert review I did from last winters performance at The Electric Factory in Philadelphia.

The Head and the Heart in Philly

This band is blowing up quickly, don’t miss the ride.

Check out this interesting look on female musicians as powerful role models in pop music.

Guilty Pleasures

April 27, 2011

Thought it would be fun to start a new thing and throw some guilty pleasure songs on my blog every once-in-awhile. We all have them, that song that reminds you of a certain time in your life. The song you sang into your hairbrush as a kid. So tell me what is your guilty pleasure. I may just post it and give you a shout out.

Today’s guilty pleasure is George Michael’s, Freedom. The video where the “Supermodel” was born. It was either this or “Father Figure”, which is also awesome but Freedom has that “Hell Ya, Lets Dance”, factor at the end which I love.

True beauty and legend Poly Styrene succumbed to her battle with cancer. She will be greatly missed. She was a pioneer and a great inspiration for many young people in music and in life.
