Finland is often considered to be a nation of introverts, and the Finns are usually the first to make fun of themselves about it. "An introverted Finn looks at his shoes when talking to you," goes a popular Finnish joke. "An extroverted Finn looks at your shoes.”
You don't need to be from The Land of the Midnight Sun however to appreciate Finnish Nightmares, a funny series of comics created by Finnish artist Karoliina Korhonen. After all, who doesn't find standing in an elevator with a stranger just the slightest bit uneasy? Or what about that awkward moment when you accidentally touch the salesperson while collecting your change? See below for more examples of socially awkward situations that all introverts will relate to, regardless of what country you're from.
