I think that introverts of any race can develop whaat Deleuze and Guattari would have called an extroverted "machine for living." There no is virtue in self indulgence and it is sel-indulgent to suffer from one's own introversion. I say this as a quite shy introvert who most people in professional contexts would not recognize as such. The trick is to know what you think and then STAND your ground and say it. Academic contexts are physically safe and that is the most important concern. This advice/insight does not hold for situations on the street!
