Came across this article tonight and thought it was an interesting read, being myself an introvert. Society tends towards extroversion, especially in the United States it seems and introverts in general are often misunderstood as being "shy" or "anti-social" when it really has nothing to do with a single interaction with people but rather whether interacting with people is energizing (extroversion) or tiring (introversion) and thus how one chooses to interact with people over the course of time.
Seeing as how I currently live with a roommate who has no idea how to treat an introvert such as myself, I thought it might be a helpful read for those of you trying to understand more introverted partners or hopeful partners. Not everything applies to every introvert, of course, but you have to have some place to start!
