Just like with iPhone rumors, another week always brings a new set of emoji around here. Which, BTW is totally fine with us ;) While we were pretty pumped about the release of IKEA’s emoji app last week, this week we are being presented with a new group of emoticons and they have us (internally) squealing.
If you ever feel like there’s just not a proper emoji piece to get your social anxiety about a house party across or the together-alone feeling you have with your partner, you no longer have to internalize those vibes. Designer Rebecca Lynch is solving the introspective communication problem with her set of icons, Introji: Emoticons for Introverts. With symbols ranging from drowning + feeling flat to out of sync + complex thinking, these speak the INFP’s language perfectly.
Rebecca told The Guardian that she created Introji out of necessity for her conversations, “In my relationships and friendships, I use text messages with emoji, but often find myself reaching for a symbol that isn’t there. So I started making Introji, as an easier visual way to tell a loved one or friend that you need more time and space.”
While there isn’t a keyboard filled with these chilled out emoji ATM, you can always save all the icons to your phone’s camera roll and use them just like you would with reg emoji (like we’re currently doing). Now get to expressing your internalized thoughts to your friends ASAP.
Will you be using Introji to express your introverted feelings? Let us know in the comments.
