I have unfortunately had the response of "I can help fix you" ... which after that I no longer want to be friends with that person. Here is a good blog about telling others about being an Introvert.

Telling others you are an introvert is often more difficult than it sounds. Despite the recent surge in books, websites and articles about this topic, many people still have no clue what introversion is.  Or worse, they have bought into unflattering introvert stereotypes.

Many misguided souls still believe that all introverts are shy, antisocial weirdos who don’t know how to interact with other humans.  So. Not. True.

The fact that there is such widespread ignorance about introversion makes the task of telling others we are introverted more intimidating.  Despite this, I remain a strong advocate for spreading the word about introversion.

I regularly tell people I’m an introvert either in conversation or by directing them to this blog.   Reactions have ranged from, “oh, cool” to “a whosa-whatsa-vert?” to “maybe I can help fix you”.
