My design, but not my list. How to care for introverts.

Since finding out that this design has gone viral, I’d like to add some background info:

I’m the original designer of this poster. The list, however, is not mine - I just wanted to make it purty. It’s been floating around for several years now and is based on an article by Linda Kreger Silverman titled “On Introversion” - http://www.gifteddevelopment.com/Articles/counseling/c140.pdf

The reason it comes off as rather childish and simplistic is that it is a list designed to help teachers who have introverted children in their classroom. However, many of us introverts still fit the bill even in our later years, and you’d be surprised how many extroverts do NOT understand these things! Yes, these are “rules” that apply to all human beings, but for introverts they can sometimes be even more important.

This image is now available as a poster and as a t-shirt (see below), and I’d be willing to put it on other products too if people are interested.

Thanks to everyone who has been sharing this (holy crap it got all over the internet FAST). I’m happy to have breathed new life into an old list and I’m very glad it has gotten people thinking, whether or not they agree with it!
