Until recently, being an introvert carried a negative social stigma with it and set these individuals apart as ‘social outcasts’. But things are changing and introverts (along with nerds) are enjoying a sudden cultural popularity. PBS’s Idea Channel looks at the recent shift in attitudes towards being introverted and the possible connection to the technology we all use and enjoy.

I was an introvert before it was cool...
Does saying that make me a hipster? Hipstrovert?

what i like about being an introvert is telling a loud mouthed extrovert to stfu and everyone agrees

The only problem is an introvert is far less likely to tell the loud mouthed extrovert to shut up.

correct, it takes a while because extroverts are usually being ignored unless they have something interesting to say. which is rare. I've been called rude (and a lot of other names) because i wouldn't join a conversation i didn't start. at some point you have to put an end to endless blathering.
