    Yeah I`m clearly an introvert. ... but sometimes if I`m in the right mood, I can be the most extroverted person in the room. ... it all depends on the situation.

    Jake:

    You can be introverted and still be socially normal. For instance, I`m a pretty big introvert, but I work as an RA which requires interaction and social skills. Introvertedness doesn`t mean socially inept, it just means you don`t get energy/refreshed from going out and doing stuff with other people, you need time to yourself to relax

    Well that`s all fine and dandy, but if that`s all it meant to be introverted I can`t imagine why anybody would ever compile such a list as this. There`s a sense of entitlement required to make such requests that I don`t feel inclined to indulge.

    Yeah, I`m very introverted. I guess the misconception is it means I`m a pasty loser who`s afraid of sunlight and loud noises.

    All it really means is that I spend a lot of time thinking internally. I may seem shy, but that`s me gauging a room, determining what will be ok to say and do in a particular scenario. I spend a lot of time going on walks just to consider surroundings.

    Just because we don`t all act like rash fratboys doesn`t make us boring or closed off, Crakr. We just think in a different way.

    A lot of people don`t understand what Introversion means. FoSchizle has the best definition. It is not a sign of a problem, or an illness it is a normal personality type that 50% of people throughout history have always had. If your thinking of people that display anti-social behavior that has nothing to do with extroversion.

    Pat & Irish: Yes I know some people are naturally introverted, but many others are not.

    There are a lot of people in the middle as well.
    I just feel it`s important to socially acclimatize kids and get them outside, playing, and making friendships.

    Most of this stuff has nothing to do with introversion. Getting embarrassed easily in public? Need to be "taught new skills in private?" Sounds like social anxiety. You can be introverted without being terrified of being in public.
    Don`t interrupt them and give them advanced notice of changes? Sounds more like aspergurs, where routine is a necessity because they can`t handle basic changes.
    I`m introverted as hell but none of that stuff describes me.

    I`m fairly introverted, but my introvertedness doesn`t really get `affected` by any of these, however I`m also somewhat shy, which DOES get affected by these.

    I would like to clarify that I`m not defending this list. Most of these are really petty and oversensitive. The only ones I really expect are 1 and 12. I`ve never had any trouble otherwise.

    Instead of giving extroverts a list of poo they have to do accommodate the fragile needs of introverts, I`ve got a much easier list for the introverts.

    1. Stay the drat away from extroverts.

    ...end of list.

    Haha..`how to care for`... it`s like a guide to looking after a new puppy or something.

    I`m quite low on the extroversion scale and a few of the things on this list aren`t really applicable to me... seems like more of a list to accommodate to the needs of the overly-sensitive.

    I don`t think a majority of people are exclusively one type or the other, though. Like thrill-seeking is often associated with extroversion, but I am such an adrenaline junkie. And also, get an introvert to talk about something they`re really interested in and you would swear they were quite extroverted.
