Being an introvert has never been easier; with a plethora of online streaming sites to keep you amused, online games, books and house delivery of pretty much anything you can think of, staying at home forever is now a relatively straightforward business.

An introverted person might seem shy or unfriendly, but in fact, they just like spending time with their own company better. If an extrovert is the happiest when they have a crowd of friends, an introspective person feels the best by having only a few. And if an extrovert gets their energy from that crowd, the other type of personality get their energy by recharging alone. And though it might seem that they are a bit anti-social, this perception cannot be more wrong. Yes, introverts aren't loud, but they tend to be great listeners and friends.

If you match the introvert characteristics and don't want to see or deal with people, that's fine! What you do with your life is your own business, there are millions of introverts out there, and there always has been so, ironically, you're not alone. We here at Bored Panda have compiled a list of hilariously self-deprecating introvert quotes by introverts themselves, who accept what they are and can have a good laugh about it. Maybe you can relate? Scroll down to check the introvert memes out for yourself, and let us know what you think in the comments!

I tried to explain this to my mother when she tried to get me to go outside and actually interact with people. It didn't work. And it was the most socially awkward day of my life.

I absolutely hate talking in front of people or generally lots of people. My boss wants me to change into present things or daying things more in front of people so i get used to it. 1st I'm afraid. I stutter and get irritated easily. 2nd im about to have a panic attack right before i have to do this. 3rd i need a lot of strenght for that and am shaking all over my body for atleast 15min after. And 4th WHY CANT SHE UNDERSTAND THAT THERE CAN BE INTROVERTS IN JOBS WITH PEOPLE. (Im a nursery nurse and work with children in the age between 4 and 12 years)

My husband! He's is a major introvert, but I'm not people :D and since he recharges by talking, he talks to me...a lot. I get drained by any interpersonal interactions, especially those involving those pesky words being needed in real time (talking), so it has literally put me to sleep before! (We were afraid I had developed narcolepsy, was anemia and vitamin D deficiency) I still get sleepy after a while.

Seriously, being invited includes the message of you belonging to a group, even if you don't attend all the time. It can be a pretty important thing even though squirming out of actually going can feel very stressful.

Nails on a chalkboard don't even bother me, to be honest... Really. It's the sudden sounds and when someone raises their voice that get me. But small talk, on the other hand... Not even a habit.

I often get jealous of people who can handle conversations so well, but most of the time they don't listen to what I say, so it just kills it for me.
