    Excellent point. Both introverts and extroverts are more comfortable with those who are like them. Some folks view introverts as being arrogant, standoffish, passive, untrustworthy or boring in (social gatherings).

    Most times it's just shyness.

    Love this answer. It's a common belief that all introverts are shy or insecure somehow and that isn't the case. I can hold conversations with strangers - if I must, lol, but I prefer a lot of solitude with little bits of people time :)

    Good point. A manager may need to ask the introvert for input. I work for an engineering firm and most of the engineers are highly specialized, and introverts. They don't talk unless you ask them for input.
