Being an introvert doesn’t necessarily mean you are shy. A shy person is afraid of interactions because they fear being judged negatively. They are like too self-conscious and thus unable to develop meaningful ties. Not all introverts are that way; some introverts have outgoing nature and thus can form deep ties with people they trust. An outgoing introvert isn’t afraid of being judged; they like meeting new people as long as it’s not a crowd because now they won’t have the energy for everybody.
Outgoing introverts value meaningful ties and therefore love the company of a few friends and family. It’s important you figure out who you are because shyness is not a great quality to have at all.
