The Mouse That Roars

Not too long ago, I found myself sitting around a table with business women and the conversation had drifted to the subject of introverts. One lady mentioned how an introvert would never admit to being an introvert and implied that they would be too embarrassed to do so, as if it were something to be ashamed of. The consensus in the room was that it was a negative, a liability. Without even taking a second to think I immediately responded that I am an introvert and liked being myself! I didn’t say it quietly or shyly but with confidence and a good volume but somehow still managed to be ignored. So what is it that makes people believe that being an introvert is a weakness or a negative?
