    No, not at all. There is nothing wrong with it and we are all different. We can't all be loud and out there! Imagine the chaos if everyone was extroverted :rofl:

    I wouldn't say it was a bad thing no, I have had serious confidence issues in the past but I wouldn't have said it was a particularly 'bad' thing :o:

    Why is enjoying different things bad? It's not at all.

    Okay, if you are extreme and refuse all social contact, and are rubbish at it, then yes it will be detrimental.
    However, extreme extrovertism is too.

    A good balance is ideal - being comfortable (and good) with socialising, even if only occasionally, but enjoying being a lonely hermit the rest of the time is ideal IMO.

    If you are introverted to the point of isolation and have no social or communication skills very much so, if it doesn't cause any additional stress in your life there's nothing wrong with it, arguably talking too much also has it's downsides. I don't believe in the whole 'introverts' are wiser rubbish though, if anything you're all shy and abstract.

    Im not sure that "bad" is quite the right descriptor. There is,after all,a balance to be struck.

    Who wants to endure a raging extrovert and egomaniac? Not I.

    No,,but the thing with life is, it isnt really going to come and grab you. You have to go get it. Now if our are painfuly introverted and have low social skills to match, well you are going to be seriously disadvantaged.

    So on balance, i would rather not be introverted. It isnt much fun.

    There is salvation for unhappy introverts but it involves effort and pain,as most worthwhile things do.
