In the book (my book) Stand Tall, the author (me) says the definitions of an introvert/extrovert can be summed up by a question, and that question is: Where do you get your energy from? Introverts get their energy from being alone while extroverts get their energy from being with other people. Remember, the key word in this definition is energy.
I’m an Auburn grad, but I’m going home tonight and watch our arch rival, Alabama, compete for the national championship. My dad, a huge Alabama fan, will do likewise. We’ll call each other several times during the game and take jabs at one another, but it’s all in fun. However, I have several friends who will be attending parties and/or inviting people over to their homes to watch the game. And I know a few people who actually flew to Pasadena to watch it in person (I didn’t know the guys who drove 51 hours with no tickets to watch it).
It doesn’t matter where you watch this game or any game; the most important thing is to have fun whether alone, in the comfort of your own home or in the company of others. Honor your personality because it’s what makes you unique. I’m not saying all introverts will watch the game at home tonight but this one (me) certainly will.
How are you going to enjoy tonight’s festivities?
