It’s high time we put the most enduring myths about human behavior to bed, and see the mind—and the world—as it is.

While it may be true that other cultures are more introvert-friendly than ours, that doesn't change the fact that, even if you can find a theoretical environment in which introvert aren't at disadvantage when it comes to dating and sex, you can't just change culture like that. I often these statements from psychologists "X would be better if our culture were different" but making a culture different is difficult to say the least. Arranged marriages - and for some any marriage at all - are now seen as intolerably misogynistic, on top of which is added the notion that love is "random" and can't and shouldn't be interfered with because nature. Such a culture is highly unfavorable to introverts but will not go away. I still feel like biological interventions would be the only attainable way out (but those are also looked down).
