This past weekend I was down on the Jersey Shore, spending the time with friends and friends of their friends. This would be a bad, bad day for an introvert–lots of people around, few chances to escape and recharge. But here’s the thing: we do like people, and if there’s a good time to be had, we can and are there. And this introvert had a great time. Good fun, good drink and great people to be around. And great weather didn’t hurt, either. If there was a downside, I gave out at 9:30 on a Saturday night, which I never do. I was peopled out, but the buzz from the day and the people made the early bed time easier to take.
