    Well, that fear of rejection is something that often accompanies introversion.
    What INTPness just said would be true.

    i've also read that shyness and introversion are not the same thing. that gives me hope because i can work on the shyness (fear of rejection) even if the introversion has to stay. i wonder though is there such a thing as a shy extrovert?

    I think shyness / fear of rejection more frequently occur among introverts than among extraverts, but for the E's, it would be an even bigger problem.
    If you're an I without shyness, then you're golden - you can interact with people without problems, but you are not dependent on it.

    Yes, there are several extroverts here who consider themselves shy.

    Shyness = discomfort in certain social situations
    Introversion = preference for less stimulation and interaction, and more working with ideas internally. Less tends to go on outside, more inside.

    They often do go together, but not always, and you can be one without the other. I do think some common traits in introverts cause us to struggle more with it, including the higher level of "mental chatter", which can lead to a lot of worrying about events beforehand and ruminating over them after. Our lower need for interaction can also easily lead to less familiarity and comfort with it.

    But I have always felt like I was just introverted because I am terrified of being rejected by people. It's easier to be alone than to risk being rejected all the time. So I have seen it as an undesirable trait and I have worked hard on gaining social skills to overcome that undesirability.

    Is introversion truly a gift/positive attribute? Should I embrace it, or keep working on being more social?
    that's not introversion, it's social phobia. and yes, introversion is wonderful. being an extrovert sucks

    that has more to do with N/S and T/F. INTJ children typically could care less about being rejected. ISFJ children are the opposite

    Being an introvert is who you are, there's no reason to change it. Plus you can't. I mean if you have something like social anxiety or you're so avoidant you can't function, yes, that's a problem. But that's not inherent to introversion in and of itself.

    um, everyone cares about being rejected. An INTJ is just more likely to rationalize it by saying "I don't need friends anyway, I'll take over the world on my own!" instead of breaking down and killing him/herself.
