Dear Readers,

Thank you all for supporting Real World Research. Writing it has been fun and educational, but after more than a year at it, I’m finding its demands—in terms of the amount of research it requires and my own writer’s OCD (revise, revise, revise, revise, and then revise one more time, or maybe two)–has made it too difficult to maintain.

And so, dear readers, I am shutting down the Real World Research lab.

I’ll be taking a little time off from Psych Central while I finish my book, The Introvert’s Way: Living a Quiet Life in a Noisy World, which will be released later this year by Perigee Books.

But I will be back here in May with a whole new blog. I hope you’ll come back ‘cause I’m gonna miss you all.

Thanks for reading Real World Research and hasta luego,

Sophia Dembling
