Shy people are really misunderstood, even surprisingly by doctors. They get treated as though theres something wrong with them, and actually some of
them end up bent out of shape because of it, and only start to truly appreciate who they are and accept their differences in their 30s. Its hard
being an innie in an outie world. But to the psychologists studying personalities, there are quite a bit differences in introspective people who are
born that way. Just over 25% are born innies, because the world doesn't need any more than that. They are considered by those studying
personalities to be the master planners of the world. Whereas the chemical released for outies in social situations is the feeling good natural
opiums in the brain, these cause a fight or flight response in the introvert. The thought processes go through different areas of the brain as well.
The introspects are associated with chemicals related to memories and their thought processes involve retrieving memories and making comparisons when
hearing information. When they're being quiet, they're absorbing everything and problem solving it. When they go out in a crowd, they don't feel
good about it, and often have to plan ahead time, and then spend a few days recovering and building up their strength so they don't get ill
afterwards. Once they are in their 30s, they usually understand themselves a lot better, and have some very good friends who appreciate them, as they
do their more outgoing companions who lift them up.
Theres lots of pretty, shy girls out there. I would say get to know one, but be friends for a while first.
