[interruptions and introverts]

Zee Gimon

I am Zee. I call myself the Observer because that's what I find myself doing most of the time - observe life and people around me. My blog is a Pensieve, similar to that of Dumbledore, used to keep the thoughts and random ideas that visit my brain.

  • Well Miss Introvert I thought about interrupting your posts several times but didn't want to feel your wrath through the internet lines so I decided to wait until the very end. I have now reached that end and will only say this (and this will tick you off): BE AN INTROVERT! BUT BE THE INTROVERT WHO LOVES JESUS AND SERVES HIM THE BEST SHE KNOWS HOW SURRENDERED TO HIM. Now…I am an extrovert. I live with a Phlegmatic Introvert. She would rather hide than take a side. I have learned to accept her. She has learned that at times I am going to embarrass the heck out of her-without even trying. we all have our flaws. I cannot be an introvert. I tell myself going into a situation "Be cool. Be calm. Sit on the sidelines." Doesn't work. So i say I am what I am. Deal with it. So…don't give yourself a stroke. 😉 Someone in Indiana loves you the way you are…blogging or not.

    • goof 🙂 feel free to try and interrupt my posts 😛

      haha, i so feel for Jo 🙂 but then, obviously you two guys have figured it out – gives me hope!

  • Zee, I am also an introvert. I think I'm an ISFJ. How is that for cool? Anyway, I talk quietly too. I hate being on a cell phone and someone says in teh middle of it "hello, hello??" UGH. Hate it. and when my mom was here, she'd always interrupt me. My husband does it to and then I completely shut down and get mad. I think its rude. And I have a sister who is an extrovert and people have told me that she is more fun, cool, outgoing, personable and blah blah blah. It's like I am not good enough either. I feel for you. I can relate so much to this post. Please do not stop being an introvert. I need someone else to relate to so I don't feel like a total loser.
    My recent post More than a feeling

    • yeah, i think we have discussed our myers-briggs types somewhere either on my blog or yours – or maybe i just dreamed about it… 😀 my memory is terrible lately.

      i hear ya re: phones… but then, i almost never talk on the phone – i am the leader in the office for being the one-who-talks-for-the-smallest-amount-possible-in-a-month. our phone bills are covered by the Chamber, so we can easily compare. most of the time, i talk for up to 40 minutes a month… total. sometimes more when my friends use my phone to call someone – i have 500 minutes in the contract, so i try to get the most of it….

      as much as i would've wanted to become extrovert, i can't 🙂 so i'll keep ya company 😀

  • I read this yesterday and now I think I might have a little to contribute.

    I was given advice many years ago – the advice was – drum roll please:

    Be Real and Be You. If you are an introvert – be the best introvert for Jesus!

    • 🙂 thanks Jim. that's what i am striving to be.

  • My wife tells me all the time that interrupting is rude and means you aren't listening and think what you have to say is more important… She reminds of that all the time.

    I really try not to interrupt. It just happens!

    I used to be very introverted as a self defense mechanism. Since I have come to grips with who I am instead of what people want me to be…I find myself being more extroverted. Go figure.

    My recent post Yes and Amen

    • i have noticed that i have become more introverted with time… or, more like, there are times when i am outgoing and i even surprise myself with it, but then it is followed by the periods when i just want to be left alone and just drink tea and write…

      i once read a description of my personality type that really made sense and let me know that i am not odd for being like that…

      They are, in fact, sometimes mistaken for extroverts because they appear so outgoing and are so genuinely interested in people – a product of the Feeling function they most readily show to the world. On the contrary, INFJs are true introverts, who can only be emotionally intimate and fulfilled with a chosen few from among their long-term friends, family, or obvious “soul mates.” (INFJ Profile, typelogic)

      i guess that's the reason why i keep swinging like a pendulum…. *shrug*

      thanks for stopping by, Dusty!

  • Kellie

    Way to go (i.e. I like your blog.) I'm an INTP, so I very much see your point. I would suggest you read the book "Introvert Power".

    • hey Kellie,

      welcome to my blog! 🙂

      hmm… i might try to find that book – sounds interesting! 🙂

      thanks for stopping by.
