There’s no question that introverts avoid people. However, every so often an introvert will go to incredible lengths to avoid talking to anyone. Whether you’re introverted or extroverted or even that all too elusive ambivert, there’s no question that many of us will sometimes go out of our way to avoid people.
However, when it comes to some of the biggest humanity avoiding practices, leave it to the biggest introverts in the world to devise the most elaborate plan possible just to avoid people in general. The following 25 people submitted their own stories to a recent reddit thread of how they as introverts avoid people, but sometimes this avoidance makes them too introverted for their own good.
1) Groceries: I was having a bad day with being too introverted. I needed groceries so I used one of those home-delivery grocery services and I texted the driver to tell them I wasn’t home at the moment and it was okay to leave everything on the front porch. I heard the driver pull up, and I stood in the hallway in a way where I couldn’t be seen from the windows and listened carefully. I heard her knock and knock again then drop off my groceries and drive off. She sent a text back saying that I should hurry up and get home because some of the items were perishable. I just opened the door and got my groceries. Probably one of the lowest moments of my life. (Reddit user: TellAPhony)
2) Dorm Room Problems: I decided to use duct tape to seal off the top and bottom of my dorm room door. I also taped over the peephole so no one could tell if my lights were on from inside the dorm. I just had no interest in talking to anyone, and who can blame me? College students are the most annoying kind of students. (Reddit user: Birdman_the_third)
