I already did in the Kindle book.
I'm trying to get it sold as a regular book but Amazon is being a brat about it.

Great comic! It really accurately describes how a lot of introverts feel all the time when certain individuals are pestering them over and over again. And the animations are really well done! 

I do think there are two sides to the coin tho. I think that as well as extroverts respecting the personal space of introverts, introverts also need to recognise that if they are to become friends with an extrovert then some effort needs to be put in aswell. And that if someone is inviting you to some party or whatever, then that is quite a nice gesture. And after all, spending time together is an important part of friendship. Unfortunately there are few individuals that feel the need to try and change introverts since they think that they know whats best for them, and thats simply naive. Different people enjoy doing different things. I do however think that these extroverts are not doing this with bad intentions and therefore wouldn't class this as bullying, its just misunderstanding (hence i'm happy you made this comic). 

In response to this, I believe the best thing for introverts to do is to explain to said extrovert how they really feel (or just send them this comic!). I feel that a lot introverts instead enter a natural shut down response where they just ignore the extrovert or tell them to f*** off or hiss as depicted in the comic. I'm just trying to stress the importance of communication in maintaining relationships, and it that respect I would be very interested if you were to write a guide for introverts on how to live with extroverts aswell.

Any thought-provoking comments would be appreciated.

I'm glad to finally track down the original for this! It made the rounds on my facebook fairly recently and now it's my go-to guide to give to folks on how to treat me. Thank you SO MUCH for putting this into plain words!
