Despite what today’s society might have you think, there is a reason why hundreds of species still have a shy population.
By being thoughtful and observant, the sensitive animals can survive longer individually. They are less like to be injured or caught by predators.
They are also they key to a group’s long term survival. While all the other animals are busy grazing, they are the ones to take a pause to look for a predator.
In human society, they have the long term view. They are the once to notice dangers like global warming and pollution before it’s too late. They see what the small signs around them are leading up to.
The short term view of extroverts combined with the long term view of introverts is a critical balance in our society. We need both to prosper.
