    I have this book. It does a pretty good job of trying to make us look normal.

    I've been studying the big five a lot lately. Actually, the trait of extroversion (low extroversion is introversion) includes your capacity to experience highs and positive emotions and does not include negative emotions. Negatives are associated with the trait of neuroticism, and before it seemed like the T/F dimension best lined up with neuroticism. I'm not so sure now. I was gonna make a whole post about this, but now you're drawing it out of me early. I've gotta go to bed, though.

    Neuroticism is related to being highly sensitive which is related to introversion + negative early experiences. I am going to write about this later. Look forward to it!

    Depression is not directly related to introversion but introverts are susceptible to depression because a) Our unique specialness is not valued as it ought to be in society at large b) We get burnt out by prolonged overarousal (and it doesn't take much to overarouse us) c) lots of other reasons.

    Neuroticism is actually the trait that holds the anxiety and fear that's responsible for shyness. This shyness may artificially inflate introversion, but it is not true introversion. As far as the degree that life experiences contribute to neuroticism, I don't know, but I'm quite certain that genetics definitely makes a sizable contribution.

    Introversion = I just don't wanna be around people right now :steam:

    Shyness = I wanna be around people (or certain people) but I'm afraid

    Shyness = fear, yes
    Neuroticism = fear, yes

    Neuroticism = Shyness, no

    Plenty of in-yer-face neurotics out there.

    You can be high in neuroticism without shyness.
