Caring for your introvert

Well, did you even know I am one? I wasn't always one, I think when I was a child I was different.
Now, however this essay describes me and how I feel everyday. Some of my best friends (yes you especially Jamie) have expressed frustration with my antisocial behavior, but may I kindly direct you to this essay it will explain everything.
Would it be bad form to leave a copy lying around at work? I still get hassled about the last conference we went on. I only managed an hour at the social events planned for the evenings. My colleagues were dismayed to find me perfectly happy reading a book in the hotel room at 9:30pm.
Well after dinner, a couple of drinks and a bit of socialising I was happy to call it a night.
As the essay describes, introverts find other peoples company tiring. After a time, I just need things to be quiet again.
"Just because I'm not talking doesn't mean I hate you"
and you can quote me on that.
