    This is exactly why this graphic was made. American culture undervalues introverts, confuses their personality style with shyness or anti-social behavior, and tries to “fix” them, because there’s obviously something wrong with them. Thank you for demonstrating this attitude for us.

    I’m glad you overcame your shyness, which is what we learned the word “introverted” to mean back in grade school. However, that is not the actual definition of introvert. Please read the article I linked to above. Introversion is not shyness, it is not timidity, it is one end of a spectrum which describes how people process the world around them. It has nothing to do with fear (thus “growing some” is irrelevant to the conversation). From the article: “Introverts seek time alone because they want time alone.

    I shouldn’t be surprised by the ignorance relating to, and understanding, introversion… but somehow, I still am.
