I'm pretty late to this article but I don't get why people get so bloody offended by things like this. So you're a proud introvert, good on you...you're in the minority I assure you. I think the reason the article is written from this standpoint it is is that you probably don't get many people googling 'how to become an introvert.' For us truely introverted it sucks balls. It is exhausting, stress inducing, often lonely, anxiety producing and god knows what else. I'm glad you're all so positive about your introverted qualities but there's a hell of a lot of us that aren't. And to get 'offended' over such an issue is pretty ridiculous. Maybe you're not introverts. Maybe you're just whingers? Over and out.
