What makes so many educators and teachers believe that introverted pupils & students are


developmentally delayed, even backwards, although many introverted children have an above average, even genius level IQ? It seems that the educational system is built for & reward extroverted pupils & students. Teachers, on average, consider extroverted pupils & students to be more developmentally apt & mature, even more intelligent than their introverted counterparts. They contend that introverted pupils & students have deep psychological issues which a good psychologists could remedy.

    I am an only child also, My first/third grade teacher taught me to be odd because I liked being alone and found other children my age to be quite puerile. My parents PUSHED me to be social, much to my chagrin. I preferred reading to socializing.

    This sentiment is so true. Many teachers prefer extroverted students to introverted students. To these teachers, extroverted students seem to be SMARTER while introverted students seem to be SLOWER.
