YES! I am a 24 yo introverted woman. Read the book Quiet, and you will not feel bad about being an introvert at all. Many of the worlds greatest discoveries were made by people who actually took the time to do it on their own. I love my family and a small group of friends, but still need alone time. The result? I listen well and invest quality time with people when I am with them. When I am by myself I write poetry, or run, or read. I have a rich inner life, and I wouldnt change this. STAY INTROVERTED. the world needs more of them.
