      Something Wicked This Way Comes...   10/09/2019

      The Autumn Supporter Giveaway!       Welcome to the very first of the seasonal BCF supporter giveaways! This month also marks one year since I took on the forum, so I want to say an extra huge thank you to all of you for keeping this place going. I have a little bit more to say about that later but, for now, let's get to the giveaway!     The Autumn Giveaway winner will be getting two Penguin Little Black Classics, The Tell-Tale Heart by Edgar Allan Poe and To Be Read At Dusk by Charles Dickens. Both of these little books contain three atmospheric short stories, perfect for autumnal evenings. The winner will also get Mary Shelley tea (a lavender and vanilla black tea) from Rosie Lea Tea's Literary Tea Collection (https://www.rosieleatea.co.uk/collections/literary-tea-collection) and a chocolate skull, to really get that spooky atmosphere .   and...   A special treat for a special month. The winner will choose one of the following recent paperback releases from the independent bookshop Big Green Bookshop:       The Wych Elm by Tana French A House of Ghosts by W.C. Ryan Melmoth by Sarah Perry The Familiars by Stacey Halls  The Dark Descent of Elizabeth Frankenstein by Kiersten White   The winner will be chosen via the usual random selection process in one week. Patreon supporters are entered automatically. If you aren't a patreon supporter but you'd like to join in with this giveaway, you can support here: https://www.patreon.com/bookclubforum.   I really hope you're all going to like this introduction to the seasonal giveaways. It's been a lot of fun to put together. Other chocolate skulls may have been harmed during the selection process…

Not aimed at you; the scenario is the stranger sidling up in a pub or a train, especially if drunk.

Expert on everything, knows nothing.. and you are about to listen.😊☺️🤩

 

And being too polite to tell them to *&^% off  :lol:

I'm an introvert. For those of you who might be familiar with MBTI, I'm an INFP.

 

I find it interesting -- but not surprising, I suppose -- that so many of the respondents are introverts. 

 

I happened to do MBTI the other day as my son had just done it and wondered if we were the same (we aren't :D)  I'm equally INFP/INFJ, Quinn.

Absolutely Bron.

That said, even though I thus have a great chance of avoiding violence, it doesn't always armour me against it; but then I do work in mental health.😅

Oh, that's great! Some of my dearest friends are INFJ.  😊

I'm an introvert and, as opposed to most people here, I mean it. I don't talk to anyone unless it's necessary. I don't even greet people I know when I see them on the street.

There isn't one kind of introvert, it's a huge varying scale. I'd like to think we all mean what we post, or why would we post it.. I find your comment a little bit offensive to be honest (though perhaps it was not intended as such!). There isn't one right way to be an introvert, and we can all handle different amounts of social interactions. It's a scale, a spectrum.

I do agree that degrees of introversion can vary.  

 

There's also the idea that introversion equals shyness or social anxiety, which isn't necessarily the case.  One can be quite fine talking with others, but recharge best in solitude. 

 

This is actually a really interesting topic to me, as I've looked into it quite a bit after my brain injury when I was trying to make sense of who I was and what I needed to heal.
