Society isn't that nice to introverts. Wouldn't most people rather be associated with words like "dynamic" than with words like "withdrawn"? We want to be "social" and "fun-loving" and not "shy" or "overwhelmed in public." In the U.S., at least, that's where our values lie — so it's no wonder that extroverts in western societies are generally happier than introverts. So what would happen if introverts acted like extroverts? Could they change to be more "social" and "fun-loving"? Most importantly, would it make them happier, or would they be forever uncomfortable? Turns out, that depends on how it's done.
