You've come to the right place. I think we are all like that here.

as usual, i have no assistance to offer whatsoever.

psychologists have diagnosed me with Gender Identity Disorder, clinical depression, and autism. while introversion is not (yet) listed as a pathological condition per se, autism has a lot of characteristics of introversion.

anyways, the feeling that i (marfan) get is that precious little "people" act like they overpower me because they outnumber me.

in other words, maybe you feel that nobody understands you. (fine). maybe nobody understands you. maybe plenty of precious little "people" understand you.

granted, i do not claim to understand you. while i am also an introvert and clinically depressed, it does not follow that all introverts understand all introverts. moreover, i have not even interacted with you in person.

there are a lot of things to understand about someone.

maybe nobody understands you completely. but it does not follow that nobody has ever understood you correctly in any way, shape, or form.

some articles claim that the world contains one quarter introverts and the rest extroverts. while it is subjective what is defined as introversion, having fewer precious little "people" with the same Myers Briggs type thus makes it harder to find someone that is just like you. it is easier to understand someone just like you than someone different from you.

so maybe you just have not interacted with enough precious little "people".

maybe you could find someone that understands you better.

but it takes some emotional resilience to go find someone that understands you.

while looking for someone that understands you, you could come across a lot more precious little "people" that do not understand you.

what i find emotionally disturbing, though, is the vast number of precious little "people" that claim to understand me. but i feel that they are totally biased against me. and then they act like i have a moral duty to accept them unconditionally. while they can just veto any statement or action from me just because they do not like it.

in their defense, (to be more fair), you cannot measure how much someone understands you. maybe i underestimated how much someone understood me. maybe someone overestimated how much he or she understood me.

besides, there is no law against misunderstanding someone.

on the other hand, i also do not understand neurotypical or cisgender "people" very well.

and i certainly do not understand arrogant or homophobic precious little "people" the slightest bit.

at least i do not act like i understand them.
