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.
