HOWEVER, that comes with certain set of stereotypes that I can't live up to because I am also an introvert. An introvert is someone who is more reflective and solitary; they may not necessarily be shy, but they like to have time to themselves and might not do as well in large groups. Introverts can get worn out from lots of social interaction and may need to recharge afterwards.
I am extroverted in that I gain energy in large crowds of friends when I'm in the mood. I am introverted in that being around groups of people can also be very draining for me. Introverts get a lot of flack because people think that they're shy or stuck up when really, they just need to be interacted with differently than their more outgoing counterparts:
Extroverts can't comprehend this and, as such, try to force the introverts to be more extroverted, which is just painful and mean. Introverts come off as shy or stuck up to extroverts and extroverts come off as pushy and loud to introverts. It's the way of the world. Being that I am both, I can handle both, so that's a plus. However, I also have the drawback that neither side can understand me. Introverts have no idea how I can just be so loud and talk to random people and extroverts say that I'm a jerk because I want to be alone sometimes, which usually pisses me off a great deal and makes me MORE introverted.
Remember people, you can't change someone- be they an introvert, extrovert, or some weird mix of the two.
