Why does American culture reward extroverts?

and look down on quiet shy people? In the UK and everywhere in Northern Europe, introverts are common.

    Americans are the children of aggressive people who grew weary of being under the thumb of a ruling class. We are not bold and brave because we are Americans, we became Americans because we are bold and brave.

    We don't look down on shy people. We have created a culture to respect and protect them.

    Because Americans think being loud means you're confident.
