That's because people typically associate introversion with being reserved and extroversion with being outgoing. So if there's an extrovert who happens to be quiet or socially anxious, it's something that's thought of as odd.People keep on bringing up the idea of a shy extrovert, but what about shy introverts?
There are shy people of every type.Surely if there are shy extroverts, there *must* be shy introverts as well?
First of all, the nature of extroversion and introversion are dependent on the cognitive functions of the particular type. So keep in mind that extroversion and introversion themselves will vary.Also, what do you think the differences between a shy introvert and a shy extrovert would be?
Second of all, shy is shy...I don't think there will be much of a difference. Actually, there may be. But I don't think it could be accounted for by any difference between introversion and extroversion. I'm not sure what the differences would be, but it could vary by type. I dunno.
