Fighting the inner battle, yet again…

From Introvert To Extrovert In 4 Easy Steps.

Really, we have to fight this battle again? Oh, alright…

The “writer” contends introversion is a learned behavior. May I suggest a close reading of  The Introvert Advantage? Especially the sections detailing the science of brain pathways and introversion/extroversion?

Again, this writer sees introversion as a problem/condition to be treated and corrected. I can’t be fine, I can’t be ok–there is something hideously wrong with me that must be changed. I must be an extrovert, at all costs. And of course, there is a price for that change.

And for the love of God, introversion and shyness are not the same thing.

Sigh.
