INTROVERSION is not the same as SHYNESS
There are no shy Introverted individuals. They aren’t simply shy people, They also are not simply depressed individuals, although introverts just as extroverts can be depressed. And they aren’t all social outcasts. Introversion is not a pathological condition; it is not an abnormal response to the world. Introverts can be excellent leaders and public speakers — although they’re stereotyped as being the shrinking violet, they don’t necessarily shy away from the spotlight.

It is simply a personality trait found in a small percentage of the total population. Introverts are different from extroverts and this difference is very difficult for the extrovert to understand because they do not operate in that fashion. And because they do not understand it, many continually try to help the introvert become more social, more gregarious, more outgoing, and have more fun from the extrovert perspective. Such is the situation of the introvert, a minority in the regular population but a majority in the gifted population
