I totally concur with you! In American society, if one is an introvert, people deem you either retarded, slow, and/or in need of therapy. Thankfully in Asian societies, introversion is highly value. Yes, empty barrels DO make the most noise!
Thank you for sharing that. Your response for parents is very well put. As parents we want to be aware of as much as possible with our child's personality and that he might have been exposed to. Parents can learn from or instruct him by experiences.
Thanks Prayzes. Whoever voted down must not have ever gone through having a child who physically couldn't handle being in public! It is not to be ignored!
it's important to be able to get along with other people, but there's a big diff between that & what many consider to be "having a social life." some in latter category simply go thru the motions because they're not comfortable with their own com
If you mean that when people have their social circle but are not interested in making it bigger, yes I think it is normal. But if it hinders their ability to lead a normal life then it's a problem. I agree with your above comment.
HP cut off end of my previous comment. I meant people who aren't comfortable with themselves often put themselves in a social whirl for that reason.
Nothing is wrong with being an introvert. It is shame that extroversion is overglorified in this society. Introverts are demonized into believing that something is inherent wrong with their personalities and that they SHOULD change!
