Hilarious Memes That Perfectly Illustrate The Life Of An Introvert

lol | 10/16/18

Introverts and extroverts are total opposites. Introverts do their thing by spending time alone as they lose energy if they’re around people for a long time. For extroverts, they thrive off energy from other people and exhaust themselves if they’re alone.

Before you go on to judge one group or the other, check out the anxiety and innovation of being introvert through animals, TV characters and cartoons. It really sum up their life in general. Interestingly enough, introverts can be great at observational humor too!

In Real Life

You see, back in 1997, they had this called a land line. All that’s missing here are some Malteasers and the box set of Seinfeld. I would so get on board for that, especially if it means canceling plans you made two weeks ago.

Sometimes, you need time for yourself.

Jump And Immediately Decline

Wait, no, don’t do that. Then, they’ll know your purposely rejected the call. But, if it’s your ringtone that plays your favorite song, you can dance around and enjoy ignoring the phone calls.

It’s a good strategy, but don’t be dancing around for too long. You don’t want to worry your parents.

It’s The Thought That Counts

Now you say to yourself “There! I touched you. What more do you want from me?” There are plenty of people to love out there, but sometimes it just sucks engaging in conversation.

You become a little isolated, but everyone is different. Like, I’m not used to hugs to greet someone.

The Force Is Strong Here

Amateurs, pffft. Those locks should be closer together to stack more of them. But, this looks like a new social media challenge that not many people would be able to complete.

How long would it take for you to unlock everything and open the door? Hopefully, there’s never a fire.

Always Thinking About The Weekend At Work

You feel exhausted at the end of the day. All you want to do from the second you get up is stay home and not be around people. Saturdays are your only day of total escape.

It’s no surprise as to why people always think about the weekend at work.

What A Big Difference That Makes

Introverts can be the most random and outspoken people when they are around others, especially the ones who make them feel comfortable. Introverts aren’t all shy people. They have no trouble to people at all, even if it’s six people.

It’s the big crowds that they’re not very keen on at all.

20 Minutes? That’s Generous

@silent.soulz/Instagram

Well, with company like that, it should be more like 20 seconds. Now, if you were stuck sitting next to a Kardashian, you would want to find the nearest exit. You don’t even want to bother staying around a hot mess.

The second you see them, you’re running out the door.

An Aggressive Misunderstanding

Your friends mean well, but you might be leaving because you’re on the brink of a panic attack. It can be pretty overwhelming being out in a crowd. Extroverts just don’t seem to understand.

Sometimes, you feel like you can’t let them down, but do what’s best for yourself.

Get Out

Here’s how to plan for this icebreaker. Practice word for word of what you’re going to say at least 20 times. When it’s your turn, you have all of this confidence, but you still might flub it up.

But, if you don’t practice, make a quick exit for the toilet.

Eric Foreman Is Not Wrong

That 70’s Show was entertaining to watch. But, speaking on behalf of Foreman, his sarcastic remark is a good excuse for any introvert.

If you’re allergic to pollen and social situations, this is good enough to stay at home for the night. And, a fake cough usually helps too.

The Cat Looks Exhausted

It makes you wonder who this cat knows. But, that feeling you have trying to avoid someone is making you have nightmares. The cat has been running around and then stopped to catch their breath.

It’s like going to Walmart and seeing someone you know. You cover your face and hope for the best.

There’s A First For Everything

I would say they’re male and female. It’s like another introvert from the sky and they landed on your lap. The male praying mantis is living a sad life and needs a special someone in his life.

It’s cute, but it won’t be cute when they mate.

Pretty Spot-On

It’s probably best for you to write your thoughts down. It’s so true because, in the end, you realize you don’t say a single world, but you’re mentally drained from your spirited internal dialogue.

The brain-to-mouth connection is precarious. The brain-to-hand connection is long but much more reliable!

Every Time

I remember my friend dragged me out to a party because she wanted to go, but I told her I didn’t.

But, I wonder if my job realizes that my kids have to have their Christmas Concert at the school on the exact day as the office Christmas party.

This Needs To Be A T-Shirt

Shut up and take my money. This shirt just became any introverts new Facebook profile picture. That, and this would be a wildly successful t-shirt too. I’m starting to wonder if any introverts who buy this will have all show up at a party wearing the same shirt?

That could be a good icebreaker.

Sometimes, Dreams Do Come True

Think back to your childhood. As a child, you dreamt of things like wanting to be a lighthouse keeper or a millionaire. But then, you realize that you have to be around other people, so those dreams came crashing down.

Well, scratch that plan, because Enya is living the dream.

Sad Music Video Cow

The cow is now the music video for Simon & Garfunkel’s “Sound of Silence.” Your kids will catch on to the tune, and they’ll start to sign it themselves.

The next thing you know, you’re waking to your kids besides your bed saying “Hello darkness, my old friend.”

I Need To Buy This

Seriously though, where can you buy this? I’m sure it’s not on the market yet, but you could make one on your own. Use straps from luggage, some wire and some sort of tape to wrap it all together.

But, in the future, those will be invisible force fields.

Let Me Tell You About Myself

It’s called not oversharing. You know, being comfortable about what you’re going to tell the person. It’s almost like spilling the beans because it could open up a can of worms.

Not only is this great, but for introverts, if they get halfway through, at least they tried.

Rude

I would think it’s rude too. You should at least call and ask if it’s alright to stop in. Like, in high school, a friend of ours always did this to us. He would show up to our house announced.

It was funny until he was knocking on the door at 10 AM on a Saturday.
