How to Introvert

Introvert Doodles: An Illustrated Look at Introvert Life in an Extrovert World
Maureen "Marzi" Wilson
Adams Media, 2016

This is a quirky little cartoon book that is a lot of fun and I even learned something from Marzi. In between introverts and extroverts there are ambiverts, who have attributes of both other types. Cool, 'cause that's me! I enjoy people in limited amounts.

Meet Marzi. She's an introvert who often finds herself in awkward situations. Marzi used to feel strange about her introverted tendencies. Not anymore! Now she knows that there are tons of introverts out there just like her--introverts who enjoy peace and quiet, need time alone to recharge their battery, and who prefer staying in with their pet and a good book to awkward social interactions. -Back Cover


The drawing style is simple. Some cartoons have lots of text; some only a little bit. Some are very funny; some quite sad. And scattered within the frames is plenty of social wisdom.


Marzi has a website IntrovertDoodles, a popular Instagram site @IntrovertDoodles and a Twitter account @IntrovertDoodle. She has also written three other books:
  • "Kind of Coping: An Illustrated Look at Life with Anxiety"
  • "The Introvert Activity Book: Draw It, Make It, Write It (Because You'd Never Say It Out Loud)"
  • "The Little Book of Big Feelings: An Illustrated Exploration of Life's Many Emotions" (Nov. 2019)


  1. Yes, I got quite a few chuckles out of it. Some of her comments are probably true of everyone.
