As an introvert myself, I've spent my entire life being told, clearly though indirectly, that something was wrong with me and that I needed to change. This isn't true. This has never been true. Being an introvert is not a mental disorder. It's just who a person is. There is nothing that irritates me more than people trying to tell me, or any other introvert, to "speak up" or "be more social." It's disrespectful and it isn't helpful. To all the introverted members of the crow family, including our American crow friend Lewis and Darryl's adopted bluejay son, be who you are. Be introverted. There's nothing wrong with it, and don't let anyone tell you otherwise.
