Susan Cain, in her book Quiet: The Power of Introverts, says that one third to half of the Americans are introverts. Just started reading it. I have it on my kindle.
Yes, introverts are in the minority, especially in Western countries. I have her book as well as many books on introversion. BTW, I am an introvert.
Introverts aren't unsocial. That's the misconception that people have of introverts.They prefer to be alone but socialize when they desire to. Also, introverts aren't quiet; they believe in having substantial discussions, not just verbally ruminate.
Quiet and unsocial are general characteristics of introverts. I don't mean a recluse but introverts usually prefer to be alone and by nature aren't very chatty. Of course, even if you would prefer not to, you must do some things or pretend to like.
