Each of us may face bias for the preferences in personality that "show up" most in us. My artistic, adventurous brother thinks me uptight because I keep to do lists and am a planner. Would you rather play or work first? The other people may see you as strange or odd.
We might argue that extroverts have an "introvert" inside. My introvert may show up when stress, fatigue or illness take over. The other interesting thing is that no one seems to understand when I want time for myself; they are used to having so much of my energy.
We have choices.
