Introverts broaden the continuum of human behavior and show that there is more than one way to be. Without some introverted balance, extroverts can become too externalized and too dependent on others’ opinions. Introverts can show extroverts the value of checking in with oneself. Innies remind all of us that each person has a valuable perspective to contribute. Extroverts can be so oriented toward others that they forget to pause and consider their own needs and beliefs.
