Extrovert or Introvert?

I conducted an interesting experiment yesterday as I walked into the place where I work at the height of the morning arrival hour. 

We have always joked that most of the people who work there are introverts and are look down at their feet as they walk. 

The extroverts, allegedly, look at other people's shoes. Meaning that they are also introverts.

Yesterday, I arrived at work with one shoe untied. Instead of tying the shoe, I decided to see how many introverts and extroverts were around me. As I walked to my office, I watched the people. I discovered that the extroverts were not looking down at the floor and had their gaze up looking into my eyes or down the hallways and did not notice my shoelace. 

The introverts noticed my untied shoe and looked at their own feet wondering whether their shoes were similarly untied. 

There was one confused introvert who saw my shoe, looked at me and then gently advised me that my shoe was untied.

Of all of the people I passed, only one brave soul was able to let me know my shoe was untied.

Suspicions confirmed. Most of the people working with me are introverts.
