    50% of the American population is made up of introverts, however society has a negative stigma placed on the word. In her talk, grade 12 student Crystal Robello provides insight on the struggles of being an introvert in today's society as well as reasons to show there is nothing wrong with it. She challenges the negative asked aspects of introverts and tries to prove that's there are no negatives. Crystal hopes to inspire others to accept themselves for who they truly are.
    Crystal Robello is a 17 year-old grade 12 student at St. Mary Catholic Secondary School. She has been playing soccer competitively for 5 years, but has been playing the sport since she was nine. Crystal is also involved in musical theater, as she was a cast member in this year’s production of Young Frankenstein at her school. As a returning member of her schools Ted-Ed club for the second year, Crystal is excited to share her opinions and experiences through her Ted Talk.

I'm an introvert to an extent , I'm extremely talkative and I express my opinions around the people I feel comfortable with but I won't talk and I won't put myself in a crowd because I feel vulnerable. It's 2019 and this speech was the icing that I NEEDED, people kept telling me that because it's a new year I need to be more "outgoing" or I won't get anywhere in life....This just proved them wrong. :)))

Well, that's good for you, but I cannot say the same. Being shy and introvert for me just ruined everything. I grew up so introverted that it has led me to loneliness, anxiety, depression, low confidence and a lack of creativeness and good ideas. It also rushed me into fear and precluded me from keeping up with my goals. By the end, the only thing left was the good achievements at school and college that right now won't give me or improve anything for myself.

Amen! I'm an INFJ. While many people nowadays mistake me for an extrovert (shyness is not synonymous with introversion, as people find out with me!), that was hardly the case for my younger years. Even now, people don't understand why I need a privacy break after so much social time. Since the fundamental difference between introverts and extroverts is energy (extroverts gain energy from socializing while introverts lose energy), my need to get away periodically still throws people for a loop.

I disagree completely. The speaker fails to explain why an inability to speak one's mind is a benefit. The closest subject mentioned was that introverted people apparently "enjoy quiet and thinking to themselves." Every human enjoys thinking, whether they consciously know it or not. You do not need to label yourself as an introvert because you feel as though you exercised your mind once. The speaker mentioned that there is nothing wrong with a lack of participation in group activities. This kind of thinking is completely backwards. Participation leads to innovation. If no one stood up and spoke their mind, there would be no progress in the world. Being afraid to participate is foolish. Who cares what others think? Who cares if your wrong the first time? If you participate and do something wrong, then you'll learn to do it correctly the next time. Say nothing, and you'll never know what you're missing. Being shy is also foolish. Communication is key to learning and cooperation in society. Shyness is an inability to communicate properly and should not be celebrated. Now I'm not saying that you have to constantly be speaking, but using "introversion" as a way to get out of social situations is bad way to go about things. Everyone is quiet sometimes, and everyone is loud sometimes. But you don't need to go around waving your introvert flag to make you look more unique and intellectual than the rest of society. Introvert is a made up term. The important thing you have to realize is this: Think quietly when thinking quietly is appropriate. Speak up when speaking up is appropriate. Don't stick that idiotic "introvert" name tag on yourself and call it a day. This video encourages complacency, and that's never helpful for anyone.

+Rachael Olivia Exactly my point Rachael. I think the basis of this 'introvert = good' theory is simply people wanting to feel unique, special, and above the rest of society. They push away their shortcomings by labeling themselves, instead of examining their character and becoming a better person. Everyone is always so focused on being different. Just because some people are quiet sometimes doesn't mean they need an entire section of YouTube videos devoted to them!

AGREE. This girl is shy and quiet and is only using the stereotype of being an introvert. I mean yes I sometimes get nervous when participating in class but I do it anyway for 1.the grade 2.Incase I'm right. I'm not gonna shame someone for being quiet and shy but I'm not gonna tolerate the unlikely moment when they use the introvert card as an excuse.

The bad thing to be an introvert is you don't have a social skill. You prefer to be silent rather than speak like me I don't like a crowded place and people often sees me as weird. In fact, I have a few friends.

I think anxiety is one of the main reasons I’m pretty introverted. For example, I don’t try too hard to make friends because I think they’ll think I’m annoying, or I never share any pain or sadness or feelings with anyone because I think it looks weak, or I’m so scared of crying in front of others because I think of it as a sign of weakness. I’m constantly worried I’m trying too hard or I simply don’t fit into society, and that’s what’s shaped me into such a category,

I hate it when people say there introverts and they think they're so special or something. An introvert is just a person who doesn't feel comfortable in social situations and having conversations with people they don't really know. I'm sorry but isn't that literally everyone? And why do people think being an introvert should be something be happy and be praised about? Sure there were a bunch of famous smart people who were introverts but that doesn't mean being an introvert will make you smarter and honourable person. Do you know why extroverted people are extroverted? Because instead of being awkward they actually try and practice being social and get more comfortable. And there are also mental health benefits from being social. It can decrease feelings of depression and you'll live a more longer happier life. Also not to mention the fact that almost all jobs involve talking and interacting with people you don't know. By the way guys I'm not a extrovert. I'm a introvert but I just hate it when people keep telling and reminding me about it and act as if I should worship them or something. I'm sorry if I offended anyone.

I was born an extrovert more or less but then my life kinda went sideways due to my extroversion, so I did some research and purposely became introverted. Life has a much different flavor to it now. Quite strange. Feels like I'm in someone else's skin, but it's pretty cool.

Introvert doesn't mean shy or quiet. It means you simply prefer time alone and solitary activities or activities with only close people to you. Extroverts like to share their thoughts. Introverts don't.

I am introvert and I have a friend who is very extrovert. It really stresses me when she says I have to change myself to be more outstanding and to communicate more. I try maybe she's true. But honestly I am so happy and comfortable with myself, I feel happy living this way. I don't like to take any small issues that can be managed seriously, but she always does, and it makes her getting a lot of problem in her life, and ended up being stress. But the thing is why does she make a simple things complicated. She can't take my advice because it doesn't fit her life. That's another problem. I don't like it when she judges me of being 'quiet' and misunderstood me from not reacting so well in any scenes. Well, I think these kind of people that makes me stress, not myself being an introvert.

In my opinion, there is no introvert/extrovert, either you are feeling low or high at certain time of your life. Having low confidence is no problem but we don't need to label ourselves as introvert/extroverts because with the passage of time we get confidence as we move on in our lives instead of holding things and overselves..

No:Introversion/Extroversion is not like "I feel down so I am an Introvert". It is based on how you recharge your energies. If you consume your energies by staying with other people and recharge by staying alone,you are an Introvert. If you consume your energies by staying alone and recharge by staying with other people,you are an Extrovert. Ambiversion exists too(Both Introversion-Extroversion)

Once on a field trip to the Science Center in middle school, me and the group of kids I was with saw one of those games where two people put on headbands that measure and record the intensity of your brain waves, and the person with the calmest mind would cause the magnetic ball on the table to roll into the other persons goal. The kids in my group immediately suggested that I try, since I’m very quiet and don’t talk a lot (they assumed that since I don’t say anything, I must not be thinking anything). I reluctantly agreed after a few minutes of them nagging me, and put on the headband. The person I was up against was a normal extrovert. They won within seconds. The calmest mind wins the game, and my brainwaves were so intense that the machine recording them almost ran out of room on the screen.

Obviously, her definition of introversion is not quite correct An extrovert would be someone who gain energy from social interraction, and an extrovert would loose energy. Being taught to be social is not a negation of personnality, it is just a skill that is required in society (whether you think it's good or not, it is a fact, sociability is a beneficial skill in our western culture - and you don't change culture with ideology)

I was initially an introvert throughout my school life. I had a fair lot of friends, but I never interacted with them too much. However, when I got into college, I tried participating in classes a lot. Even though I had a strange feeling inside my stomach, I tried to speak out to people who were more knowledgeable than me. I found out that most of the times, they did agree with me, and this boosted my confidence. Soon, I became more comfortable and found myself to be less shy of socializing. Now I find myself to be very flexible while socializing. I can be the quietest guy in my peer group or be as outgoing as an extrovert. Best of both worlds, that is an ambivert! I can assure you that this is more advantageous than being either an Introvert or an Extrovert. Best feeling ever :) So people, if you are an introvert and would like to change yourself, keep pushing against your fears. You'll definitely succeed!

The sad part is when people assume you are arrogant and think of yourself as higher than others, because you don't socialize with them or talk much to them.
