Being an introvert is pretty common, but it doesn't seem like the world was made for us introverts. The list of introvert problems could go on forever: having a 20 minute party tolerance, the chronic fear of interviews, and the dreaded conversation with a stranger (if you wanted to talk to someone on the bus, you wouldn't be staring at whatever inanimate thing you could find.)
