Do you spend more time on the internet than you should? Does the sudden brutal stabbing murder of a loved one give you feels? Can you remember at least one incident from high school that bothered you in some way? Relax; you’re not crazy — you’re an introvert! Welcome to the club!
Still not sure? Take a look at these telltale signs, compiled by someone who nearly looked up ‘introvert’ in a dictionary.
You might be an Introvert if…
You read books
Only introverts know how to read. If you enjoy this quirky, archaic pastime, you might just be an introvert!
You go shopping by yourself
Sure, it seems pretty ‘weird’, but you can do without the normal entourage required to pop down the shops for milk and bread. You see a gang of twelve to fifteen fashionable kids crowded in the freezer aisle, gabbing into their mobile phones while all cooperatively picking up the same packet of frozen peas and placing it into their single shared trolley and think, “No thanks; I like cats!”
You like cats
Or dogs. Or one single dog. Anything mammalian, really, and birds too even. Most people punch a baby rabbit in the face every morning before breakfast, so if you see a baby rabbit and go, “Aw, so cute,” you’re probably an introvert.
You like to stay at home
Normal people literally explode if they stay in the same room for more than an hour, which is why they’re always dancing in the street, paragliding, swimming to the moon etc. If you get home from a hard day’s work and just want to relax on the couch with a hot cup of tea, guess what, you big ol’ introvert? That’s right it means you are one.
You’re intelligent, creative and thoughtful
Wouldn’t you know it, introverts are all of these! Heaps more than the average ‘popular’ moron.
You have a rich inner world
Your inner world is just so rich, what with all of your observations about things; it’s a pity most people are too busy going “Blah blah blah, shopping, television!” to notice. But someone willing to humbly defer to your hidden genius will discover that you are a brilliant conversationalist who knows about a band.
You need your quiet time and personal space
Extroverts sometimes run up to you, wild-eyed, and just start yelling; just “AAAAARGH!!! AAAAAAAAARGH!!!” at the top of their lungs, their face an inch away from your own. Most people would be like, “Who’s this sexy extrovert? I wanna get down with this person,” but an introvert like you is more likely to think, “Yikes! I’m uncomfortable.”
So if you’re an introvert, don’t worry! There are others like you, out there somewhere, suffering the same nearly-monthly indignity of people saying, “Are you okay?” or “Wow, you came!” to them. Just remember: being an introvert makes you special and interesting, like a black or a gay. Let’s show some introvert pride!

A very unusual genetic color variation in white-tailed deer — rarer even than albinism — produces all-black offspring in that species which are known as “melanistic” or “melanic” deer.

This one is about a situation we have in Brazil concerning indigenous people. I believe people from the US might find these words a bit strange, since I reckon they would refer to native americans as, well, “native americans”. However, as this is not the way we say in Brazil and it was made thinking about Brazilian indigenous folk (and people from many nationalities follow my work in english), I chose to translate as “indigenous”. Of course, native population/ indigenous people from all over the world are welcome to identify with this piece as well. I just thought it would be nice to explain this translation.

Translated by me and Monica Odom.

[image text] Bruna Krenak has been told that she shouldn’t be considered indigenous anymore because she wears jeans and goes to college. Bruna, you are the only person in the world who can define your own identity, and nobody else has any right to deny it.

Sobre este tema, recomendo este texto, do qual destaco o seguinte parágrafo:

“Nosso objetivo político e teórico, como antropólogos, era estabelecer 
definitivamente – não o conseguimos; mas acho que um dia vamos chegar lá – que índio não é uma questão de cocar de pena, urucum e arco e flecha, algo de aparente e evidente nesse sentido estereotipificante, mas sim uma questão de “estado de espírito”. Um modo de ser e não um modo de aparecer. Na verdade, algo mais (ou menos) que um modo de ser: a indianidade designava para nós um certo modo de devir, algo essencialmente invisível mas nem por isso menos eficaz: um movimento infinitesimal incessante de diferenciação, não um estado massivo de “diferença” anteriorizada e estabilizada, isto é, uma identidade. (Um dia seria bom os antropólogos pararem de chamar identidade de diferença e 
vice-versa.) A nossa luta, portanto, era conceitual: nosso problema era fazer com que o “ainda” do juízo de senso comum “esse pessoal ainda é índio” (ou “não é mais”) não significasse um estado transitório ou uma etapa a ser vencida. A ideia é a de que os índios “ainda” não tinham sido vencidos, nem jamais o seriam. Eles jamais acabar(i)am de ser índios, “ainda que”… Ou justamente porquê. Em suma, a ideia era que “índio” não podia ser visto como uma etapa na marcha ascensional até o invejável estado de “branco” ou “civilizado”.

[texto da imagem] Bruna Krenak já ouviu pessoas dizendo que ela não deve mais ser considerada índia porque usa calça jeans e frequenta a universidade.
Bruna, você é a única pessoa no mundo que pode afirmar sua identidade, e ninguém tem o direito de negá-la.
