Someone who doesn't like to deal with people all the time. That prefers staying at home and enjoying him or herself over going out with friends. Someone who prefers and embraces solitude and who finds it exhausting to be around large groups of people. Shut Ins, or Recluses as some put it our viewed negatively because they are misunderstood and labled as "weird", or "lacking social skills", this however is a major misconception. Many shut ins, or introverts actually have very good social skills but only use them in the given situation that they are in. They hate small talk and meaningless conversations. They prefer real talk, talk that has meaning and isn't a waste of their time and yours.
