4 “Celebrities” You Had No Idea Were Introverts

1. Ed Gein – I know, this first one is a shocker. He actually really enjoyed alone time after socializing. When he was in prison he would get very tired of hanging out with the other inmates. He once said “I like this place, everybody treats me nice, some of them are a little crazy though.” He much preferred spending quality time alone with masks of human skin.

2. Ted Bundy – Despite his overwhelming good looks and charm, this man actually would find himself observing his surroundings and practically reading the minds of his victims. He preferred one on one time with them, and a lot of people misunderstood his behavior for being a snob.

3. Charles Manson – Charlie was a truly classic example of a creative type who is also an introvert. He would be sitting around his house scheming up all kinds of ways to brainwash people into murdering the extroverts who just drove him nuts! That Sharon Tate was always out there in the world being socially acceptable and he just couldn’t take it.

4. Jeff Dahmer – He was known as his school’s class clown. If he wasn’t doing something totally silly and goofy he was probably sitting in his room thinking the most absolutely revolting perverted thoughts. He found it hard to relate to the rest of humanity because he couldn’t feel remorse for really petty things like murder. He once said “ I’ve always wondered myself why I don’t feel more remorse.” So hard to relate to all those extroverts who feel bad for doing bad things!!!

There you have it. You’re not alone! I hope this validates you in some way, otherwise what good would an internet article be anyways? Please feel free to share it on Facebook, so your friends can say, LOL SO TRUE! TC mark
