Introverts of the world, rise up!

Introverts of the world, rise up!
This is a nice idea. Someone is sticking up for all those quiet, thoughtful and introspective people. The ones who fit the cliché silent but deep.

It’s a problem in education, we, as teachers, don’t interact well with introverts. Quiet kids are forced to act in a demonstrative way to keep their teachers happy. Without that, the assumption is made that the quiet ones are not involved in the lesson. Observers often believe that no learning is taking place.
Teachers, by their nature, are often extroverts. There is relatively little common ground between the two.
