Talk louder. Stop being so shy. You don't speak much, do you? If you stay this quiet you won't get anywhere.
These statements/questions have been asked to a particular part of society for as long as any member of this part of society can remember. The part that is always looked down upon by their louder counterparts, the introverted part of society. We all know, or should know, that just like sexuality can never be a choice, how introverted or extraverted you are can also not be chosen. It's an inherent part of your genetic makeup. Yet extraverted individuals are deemed as better employees, romantic partners, friends and just better humans.
If you have been faced with such questions and been looked down upon for your quieter ways, or if you just want to find out more about the struggles of an introvert, listen to this episode on how it's like living in a world that's just too loud for many of us.
