Why are introverted children and teens are oftentimes viewed as inferior, even


marginalized by their extroverted parents in favor of extroverted siblings, relatives, and even non-related children? At work, I remember one co-worker endlessly criticize her introverted daughter, saying that she had no personality. This co-worker compared her daughter to a more extroverted classmate who had lots of friends and was extremely popular in school.

    WE certainly ARE! Amen to you, Buildreps! You are quite indeed welcome re: great question. So many extroverted parents deem their introverted children as somehow inferior.
