    I found this today while randomly browsing... I thought it was interesting, since usually you see more articles and "self-help" books teaching introverts how to be extroverts!

    The original is here, but I'll paste it below for ease of access.

    So, thoughts? Is it good advice? Would it work? Should extroverts try to cultivate the kinds of skills tat are intrinsic in introverts?

    I don't think that's what the article is implying. Anyway I didn't write it, I just thought it was interesting and wanted to hear others' thoughts.

    Just like the Introvert can learn to be more outgoing and sociable, the extrovert can learn to be more reserved and introspective. It does not state that extroverts don't engage in any of this activities, but this traits are usually associated with introversion and it would be nice for an extrovert to know.

    That's pretty much what I thought and then, "And introverts do all of that?"
