Introvert means you are looking towards yourself and the characteristics of introverts are shyness, keep to themselves, does not talk at all or very little. The opposite is the extrovert who talks a lot and never shuts up! AHH the extrovert is annoying.

The word introvert is a noun that can be used for a person who doesn't feel comfortable in the company of others and almost always indulged in his own thoughts and feelings. The introvert person is not very commonly found as most people love the company of others.

Sometimes it is considered as a personality disorder but some experts counter the statement that most of the creative and genius people fall under this category so calling it a personality disorder is an insult to them.

There are some other words like extrovert and ambivert are there that are formed of the same root and also describe personality attributes. Extrovert is just opposite of introvert and the extrovert person loves to meet people. Ambivert people have both the attributes and they change themselves according to the situation.
