10 illustrations that sum up what is like for introverts

By Talia Lakritz, From Business

Introverts need time alone to regroup, which people often perceive as anti-social.

Being an introvert in an extrovert world is hard.

When “friendly” is defined as outgoing and talkative, people who prefer to spend time alone or think through what they want to say before speaking often get left behind.

Maureen “Marzi” Wilson finally gives introverts their (somewhat reluctant) moment in the spotlight in her book, “: An Illustrated Look at Introvert Life in an Extrovert World.”

She illustrates awkward encounters, vents her frustrations, and shares advice and pep talks for anyone who finds the world overstimulating.

Here are 10 of her doodles that show just how real the introvert struggle is.

Introverts generally think through what they want to say before talking, which makes thinking on their feet stressful.
