I wholeheartedly agree it has everything to do with energy. The traits you listed: insecurity, fear of loneliness, and herd mentality, I believe, are instilled (to an extent) in every human being. Most of us humans, however, are extroverted. They rely on social interactions for stimulus and energy. Introverts derive these from within. Neither understand the other fully, I feel. I know I have been judged for my introverted ways, but it’s just because like I said, extroverts don’t understand how we can be alone so much. And we introverts don’t really understand why they need to constantly talk to someone or be around someone. But it’s how we each get out energy, it is what contributes to our well being.
I believe introverts have existed since the start of man, but is an introvert born that way, or do they become introverted later in development? I don’t recall ever getting my energy from constant interaction (some, but mostly alone).
