I absolutely agree JP

Black people look at you like you're an alien if you're not extroverted AND outgoing. You're either a weirdo or you have an attitude. God forbid yo lightskint too LOL

I think these personality types are much more accepted or tolerated in Asian cultures

I consider myself a "functioning introvert", I can work & do things in public when I have to, but will gladly trade that for a secluded cabin in the mountains in a heartbeat. In my off times, being secluded at home actually recharges my "batteries". Being around people all the time with no breaks drains me.

Gotcha. I still have the perception that shy people have it hard in the AA community, as if you are expected to project confidence at all times. Some cultures seem more tolerant of shyness, at least in women. Again, it's just my perception.
 


That could be because opportunities don't just fall into our laps (or as easily/frequently). Generally, we have to aggressively pursue them.   That's my perception.

I don't know. I'm comparing it to French Caribbean culture and it seems like we are more accepting of shyness as a personality trait. I guess it's something I noticed with in-laws...

well in that case...

I'm both introverted and extroverted...

I get my energy from being around people sometimes...but at other times I must have my distance...

I need a healthy balance...

I always knew I was a "weird" (Black) person because I dream of leaving everyone I know and settling in the backwoods of Colorado just living the simple life...

*sigh* i wish
