  1. Yes, I definitely think there is a bias in favor of etotxverrs in the US. As I mentioned, I usually get an E for extrovert on the Myers Briggs, but I is not far behind. I need and value that quiet time as much as I enjoy being around people. Maybe it’s because I can be really outgoing in groups, I’ve noticed that a lot of people don’t understand when I take time away from a group for some alone time. Working in education, I often see staff gravitating towards and praising the extroverted students, but the quieter students who tend to sit back and observe often have really interesting or insightful things to say when you are able to engage them in conversation. There’s kind of this idea that if you are quiet, you need to break out of your shell, when some people are just quiet and that’s that!
