A Perfect Day for Introverts
Alice N. Persons


Stay in your pajamas half the day
get a message and the therapist doesn’t talk
work on some writing at your desk
the phone doesn’t ring
read a book while eating lunch in your kitchen
get some laundry done
take a nap with your cat
put on James Brown and dance around the living room
don’t put on makeup
make popcorn, watch Netflix
share popcorn with dog

As an INFP I concur. Neat idea.

I don't have pets, but the rest sounds good!

Couldn't agree more, Alice! I'm a confirmed and happy introvert too.
