Hi, my name is Jillian! I live in Southern, CA. I enjoy reading, writing, and traveling! I would like to share my writing with those who are interested in learning more about what it's like to be an Introvert and to help connect with those who are introverts as we share this incredible journey called LIFE.

As an introvert, life has not been easy for me. I didn't realize that I'd have to make more of an effort to connect with other people and to take time for myself to recover from social engagements. Fortunately, I took the MBTI in February of 2018, I found out that indeed I am an introvert/INTP. Knowing this about myself, peeked my curiosity to learn more about introverts and how we behave and the science behind it.

A bit about myself

I am a former Marine, Manager, Entrepreneur, and Hospice Health Volunteer. I have two bachelor degrees, one in Project Management and the other in Healthcare Administration. I grew up in the small town of Easton, CT with a strict religious family and have three wonderful brothers; I played the piano for roughly 8 years and was in the school band as a clarinet player and alto singer in the choir. I enjoy art, music, and science.

I never fully understood why I needed so much time to myself until recently this year. People would often question me about why I didn't like to hang out and spend most of my time with them; they were perplexed and couldn't understand why I had no interest in going out. As a result, I lost many good connections with people simply because I did not want to explain why I didn't prefer to spend most of my time hanging out with friends.

Over the years, I've found great solace in what I enjoy doing in my spare time. I continue to read, write, play the piano, and collect art pieces. I absolutely love to explore and observe new ideas, places, and information. I suppose you can label me (I personally don't believe in labels) as an odd person and I wouldn't want it any other way! I look forward to creating more articles and videos to share my thoughts with the world.
