I have a three-year-old son. His name is Gerald, named after my grandfather because we recycle male names in my family instead of inventing new ones. It’s a way of preserving part of our heritage and history so that it is not lost with passing generations. Gerry is my pride and joy and is a very happy, well-adjusted introvert. My wife and I are both introverts and when you take two introverts and put them together, it is unlikely that they will produce an extrovert. Note that being an introvert is not synonymous with lacking confidence. Gerry is supremely confident and never hesitates to speak his mind. This we have always encouraged.
We live in a society amongst hundreds of thousands or even millions of other people. Behavioural laws have developed in order to ensure that our society runs smoothly. Without these laws, social interaction would become increasingly dangerous. The breakdown of these social laws is explored in many apocalyptic movies and series. A popular modern phenomenon is the zombie apocalypse genre which explores how the breakdown of social laws makes life increasingly dangerous for the survivors who have to contend violently with other humans jostling for dwindling resources.
