Abstract

In the United States education system, most classic teaching methods create a heavily biased environment towards extroverted learning. Being an introvert in an environment built around discussion, class participation in which speed of response is wanted, and group work can become tiring and not highlight some of the benefits that introverts bring to a classroom. This problem is only exacerbated by the fact that it is incredibly difficult for a teacher to determine whether a student is extroverted or introverted. When a teacher enters a classroom signs of introversion, such as shyness, can also be misleading. Therefore, to enhance education for introverts a new technique has to be developed that aids all students, extroverts and introverts, equally.
