Do you know someone who needs hours alone every day? Who loves quiet conversations about feelings or ideas, and can give a dynamite presentation to a big audience, but seems awkward in groups and maladroit at small talk? Who has to be dragged to parties and then needs the rest of the day to recuperate? Who growls or scowls or grunts or winces when accosted with pleasantries by people who are just trying to be nice?

If you can’t see that I fit that description, you’re either very poor at reading people, you don’t know me well, or I can become a world class actor.)

Read the rest of the above article at www.theatlantic.com. And read it carefully if you care about me!

Thanks to Zh Xing who alerted me to this gem.
