Introverts, Extroverts and Church Attendance

"Contrary to popular belief, an introvert is not necessarily shy (though some are). The introvert/extrovert dynamic has less to do with the ability to engage, and more to do with how we are wired, and where we most draw our energy.

Are Baby Boomers Returning to Religion?
