Are you an introvert or extrovert? Do you find yourself somewhere in the middle or are the terms meaningless to you?
I’d be curious if there are any links between asexuality and introversion. If so, would that be influenced by the largest ace communities being online? While online communities are important because aces are geographically spread apart, maybe our online communities are also especially supportive for the introverted among us. Does the medium of community we use encourage introverted people to stick around and thus make them more likely to connect with an ace identity?
To be clear by introvert I mean a person who charges themselves by being alone and by extrovert I mean a person who charges themselves by being around others. For example, being an extrovert around lots of stimuli is like being a solar panel on a sunny day. As soon as I put that together I knew that I was an introvert. I recharge best in a bubble bath by myself, with the lights dimmed, but I also really like just being around people and not interacting with them (like working side by side at a coffee shop with a buddy).
