I think I was the exact opposite.  I was an introvert that became an 
extrovert due to computers.   I had my own creative world, and for the 
most part I kept to myself.   I learned to talk to people over the 
computer (BBSs and all) and over time, when I met up with them (BBS 
parties) I learned to talk to people better and better in person.

But on the computer initially was where I learned to converse, debate, 
and so on.

So this statement might be true, but not in all cases.
