"Myth #2 – Introverts are shy.Well, ish. But isn't everying "ish"? [via a comment at this also accurate Diamond Geezer post]
Shyness has nothing to do with being an Introvert. Introverts are not necessarily afraid of people. What they need is a reason to interact. They don’t interact for the sake of interacting. If you want to talk to an Introvert, just start talking. Don’t worry about being polite."
