Before, Eric thought that introverts were shy people. But when he heard information, read, thought, and spoke about the topic, he understood more. Now he knew that this was a misconception! He saw that introverts were individuals who need some time alone to recharge their energy. Because of the practice that we did, he found a new way to understand both introverts and extroverts.
