Hey Jonathan .. When I meet other people it reassures me of why I choose to be a loner! I agree with you.

Welcome Kath! Yes I have that book and even did a discussion on the book in the INTJ group. So glad you could join us!
Comment by Kath on March 19, 2012 at 10:17pm

Thanks, Steph.  The words "loner" and "introvert" are used negatively so often that for many years I thought there was something wrong with me.  Then I read a book called "The Introvert Advantage: How to Thrive in an Extrovert World" and it was one of those life-changing moments.  Like coming out, giving birth, getting sober, breaking free from AA, and the cathartic experience of the day that I woke up and knew that there was no God or gods.  An introvert group on a nontheist website --- somebody pinch me because I must be dreaming!!  It's good to be here.  Thanks!

Steph this article reminded me of you:

Introverts run the world -- quietly

Comment by Steph S. on March 14, 2012 at 11:39am

Basically, a person who likes being alone. Unlike the social attitude that says people who are alone are really unhappy inside, many loners are actually the happiest when they're alone. Rather than finding solace in friends and family, they find solace in things such as video games, Internet, books, etc.
