How to interact with the introverted…

My daughter spends a lot of time with her theater friends, who thrive on community and love giving and getting attention.

Every so often she reports being puzzled by kids who don’t respond well to what she intends as overtures of friendship. Even kids who, as far as I can tell, are confident and outgoing, can still baffle her if they just aren’t as extraverted as she is.

I thought maybe showing her this comic might help. What do you think… can extraverted kids learn to appreciate their more contemplative, gentler peers? I usually score pretty near the introvert/extravert line in personality tests, so I guess it’s easier for me to see both sides.
