A pop headology magazine that we have been receiving mysteriously (er, the why of the receiving is mysterious; neither one of us signed up for a subscription. We've been getting them in the mail, which isn't mysterious at all.)  had an article about introversion a few months ago that I thought was very interesting. In essence, they hypothesized (well, theorized, since the writers use the research of others) that introverts are exhausted by extensive contact with others because they do more behavioral analysis throughout the contact. Constantly analyzing the nuances of communication is draining just like any other concentrated thought process: short bursts, no problem; over a greater period, a bit of a strain. 

It's an interesting theory. I'd like to hear more about the research. At the least, it's refreshing to hear about psycological research that doesn't make it sound like we introverts are antisocial freaks.

Since I haven't posted anything of substance recently, here's a random sampling of my week:
