Many people think that introverts are shy, wallflowers that are afraid to be in public. Introverts, however, are not shy at all. Many public speakers are introverts. Barak Obama was an introvert, and he was President. Introverts actually like having conversations. But, as extroverts like to be in crowds and have more surface-level talking, introverts prefer groups of 2-5 that have more in-depth conversations.
