Corona Chronicles: Is Social Distancing Easier for Introverts? | TIS Ep. 1
The Coronavirus pandemic is in full effect — and so is social distancing. And extroverts around the world are struggling with self-isolation. Introverts, not so much. Most introverts that we know are upset (naturally) about the health scare, but glad that the planet is on silent mode. Sharon and Lisa talk about whether social distancing is easier for them because they’re introverted, and how they’re dealing with the new normal. Plus, the sisters have questions: Why are people hoarding toilet paper? Are people staying 6 feet away? Is it possible to clean everything?? Will the job market return to normal? Tune in for our inaugural episode!

Is Social Distancing Easier for Introverts? – Quotes:
“Contrary to popular belief, introverts are not just skulking in a corner unable to face the world. We notice everything, and we have opinions on everything.”
“It’s fine to mostly want to stay inside, but to be told that you can’t go out puts it in a different context.”
“When you have a tiled floor and you know the measurement of the tiles, it’s very easy to identify how far 6 feet is.”
“People can be hard work.”
“Even in the midst of downturns, there are opportunities.”
