I started a new job a few weeks ago and a lot of people in the office are extroverted and loud, whereas I am introverted. I will talk to someone if they talk to me but I usualyl just get on with my work. It is really embarassing when an extroverted colleague(particually one guy) forgets about me (my desk is in a small office in the corner that I share with another extrovert but she is really nice) and points out that I am quiet in front of everyone else. When I'm at home and with close friends I am talkative and lively.
Has anyone ever been in a similar situation and is there anything I can do about this? Starting to wonder why they even gave me the job.

I have the exact same problem at work,
loads of people are really loud and talkaltive and are now really good friends from working together but i find it difficult to join in with them sometimes, and i feel really awkward when everyone is involved in a big conversation and i hardly say anything
i am really talkative with 2/3 people who i work closely with but not with everyone else (even though i started at the same time as a lot of them)
this post isnt really that helpful but i basically am in a similar situation
