I have always been more on the shy side, preferring to listen to the happenings of life and taking it all in quietly. Growing up, I was very close to my family and always had only one or two very close friends — many acquaintances, but only a few very close friends. My whole family is really introverted, and I think oftentimes introverts are misunderstood — especially if you are an extrovert.
Princess Raru would be what I describe as an introvert and I would definitely describe myself that way as well. I think Mister Speed and Princess Bean tend to take after their Dad more, who is strangely a mix of introvert and extrovert. As far as Raru and I, we are quiet, keep to ourselves, ‘in our heads’ a lot and can become really embarrassed quite easily. In an extrovert-world, there are some things parents should keep in mind if one of your children happens to have some traits of an introvert.
