Dear Irina,

Bravo — hear, hear! Well said!

I’ve stopped saying that I am NOT a people person, & started saying that I am a person person. I don’t like people as a mass, as a group, as a mob, … well, you get the idea. But one-on-one interaction is a different story. Which is another reason I act asocial in gatherings. If someone comes over to talk to me, fantastic. If no one does, great. I’m happy either way. I consider myself an extraverted introvert.
