Covid & the Introvert

An Introvert in Covid 19!

As an ISFJ, I could say that the Covid isolation has not affected me that much, but that is not entirely true. My Myers-Briggs® type and how I react is dependent on the many influences of everyday life as well and the other dichotomies (Sensing, Feeling, and Judging).

Yes, I am comfortable on my own but that does not mean I don’t like face-to-face interaction, it just means that I need alone time for reflection. I do miss the volunteer activities, the theatre and symphony. ‘Zoom’ and ‘Streaming’ do not replace being there, even for me, but I know the difficulties facing my friends who are extraverts. I can see and hear the stress they are facing as they need the interaction in their daily lives.

As an introvert I am not entirely at ease with where I am in the pandemic, but I think I have less challenges than the extraverts.

Everyone stay safe, stay well, be kind!  We are all in different boats in the same storm.
