Can an Extrovert Become an Introvert?

Lately I’ve been feeling a little bit different about myself.

The girl I used to be was a girl who enjoy being with a lot of people, talk a lot, making jokes and everything. Also likes to hang out with a bunch of people. The very typical extrovert girl.

I got my energy by meeting a lot of people, talking to my friends and having such a busy day outside.

But, the girl I am now is a little bit different. Just a little bit. Now I prefer to spend my time at home, gardening and taking care of my beautiful plants. Reading books all day in bed. And if I were to choose between hanging out in saturday night with the gangs or sitting in a cafe with just a person, I’d choose the second.

I was afraid to watch a movie alone. I don’t know, I just can’t imagine the feeling of coming into the theatre and buy a ticket for one person. Like how could that be?

I never thought about going to a coffee shop alone and I couldn’t stand of people watching me sitting alone like a freak. But now? It doesn’t feel that bad.

Rejecting an invitation to go to parties also happens quite often recently. Being in a crowd makes me exhausted.

It feels a little bit weird and I started to think “am I shifting to become an introvert or what? Is that even possible?”

So I googled it and found this on Quora:

So the answer is yes.

However, in my case, I guess the change is only at behavioral level. I don’t think I really switch into an introvert. But yes, I do not enjoy doing some extrovert activities that I enjoy before.

Well, it is true about what Veronika Pooky said at quora that we become more mature, we learn more about life, and thus affects our attitudes over time.
