"Group work": Extroverts do the "group" part, introvert does the "work" part.

I'm an introvert because i don't like talking about people all the time. Talk to me about ideas and I'll suddenly become an extrovert. Period.

Ironically, teachers ask introverts to open up and try to shut up extroverts.

This video is an answer to all the teachers who said..'your daughter doesn't participates in the class'

update: I graduated high school and I'm apparently studying French that I love, and I found out that I participate way more in my French classes than I ever have. I think it has to do with my love and interest towards the language. Find what you love and you'll see yourself change xx

Telling an introvert to open up is as rude as telling an extrovert to shut up..!!

I am an extroverted mom who has an introverted son. Throughout my son's entire childhood, I would try to force him to be more social, fearing that he would miss out on something. Then a friend scolded me and told me to quit treating him like he had something wrong with him. Being an introvert isn't an illness. It's simply a type of personality. Since that day, I see my son for the interesting, creative, thoughtful, purposeful man that he is. He doesn't get wrapped up in petty drama. And he has so much common sense that it amazes me. I agree whole-heartedly that the group projects in school aren't always beneficial as I saw my son repeatedly doing most of the work while others took the credit.

Actually. Forcing introverts to be like extroverts (especially at a young age) and then blaming them for when they can't be like "the rest" is very traumatic and can cause a lot of issues later in life.

You know the comment section belongs to introverts when you see paragraphs.

I felt uncomfortable when people said why are you so quiet.
Sometimes just simply because I'm not interested in the topics they are talking about.

You’re at the grocery store. You’re looking for milk, but you cannot seem to find it. What do you do?
Extrovert: Ask someone for help.
Introvert: Wander around for potentially hours trying to find it yourself.
