  Caring for Your Introvert
Introverts may be common, but they are also among the most misunderstood and aggrieved groups in America, possibly the world.
Introverts are also not misanthropic, though some of us do go along with Sartre as far as to say "Hell is other people at breakfast." Rather, introverts are people who find other people tiring.
Introverts are described with words like "guarded," "loner," "reserved," "taciturn," "self-contained," "private"—narrow, ungenerous words, words that suggest emotional parsimony and smallness of personality.

 The Introvert Advantage | Annotate
Brain scans reveal that introverted children "have more brain activity, in general, [than extroverts] specifically in their frontal lobes." (Introverts in an Extrovert’s World.) Experts have long understood that introverts need solitude to recharge, while extroverts are energized by social interaction.
Introverts, on the other hand, have such a surfeit of brain activity that it’s sometimes difficult for them to attend to what’s happening around them.
Introverts have more acetylcholine, a chemical that enhances "long-term memory, the ability to stay calm and alert, and perceptual learning." They also have increased activity in the frontal lobe, which has been linked to high-level problem solving skills, long-term planning, and a facility with language.

 How to Go From Introvert to Extrovert
One reason introverts shy away from social activities is that they don’t feel comfortable because they don’t know what to do, especially if the unexpected were to occur.

Not every introvert is a recluse shut up in their house without a telephone and writing in little journals all day.

Introverts, Rauch pointed out—though an oppressed minority—comprise a significant portion of the population.
