Introvert is just....

....another word for people who are poorly adjusted socially. Discuss.

*Edit because apparently bringing up a topic for discussion is offensive. I have no opinion on this one way or the other. I was thininking about it the other day and actually getting down on myself because I find my introverted tendencies to be crippling at times. I kept coming back to this idea that maybe I just suck at social stuff, so I brought my conundrum here to see what others thought.

Yup! I'm awkward as hell and use sign language to communicate simply because I'm too nervous to speak. DH loves his little oddball. 

My brother's an introvert, but he's socially fine. He just prefers to be alone.

No, think about it more. Are people shy because they are poorly socially adjusted? Or is shy just a thing? Can we say one way or the other?

Quoting achorney:

I guess the same could be said for extroverts too. They don't know when to NOT go up and talk to people.

Not at all! An introvert simply needs more solitude in order to recharge.

Dh is an introvert and is not socially dysfunctional. He is just a quiet guy like his dad. If we are with others he is not as quiet as he is at home. He can be quite the jokester with his friends.

Introverts aren't always shy.

Introverts aren't necessarily shy, though. We simply prefer less social interaction than extraverts.
