Being introverted enhances one's intellect; you learn more about yourself, more about other people, more about the way things are. It can make you cynical/depressed if you're too introverted (citing from experience), because nobody else shares the same knowledge & thoughts as you do.
But enough about the hardcore stuff - being introverted is just as right as being extroverted, providing you're comfortable with it. I was a hardcore introvert, though, and it got really depressing because everyone else was in bliss, while I knew too much from hours upon hours of self-reflection. If you want to become less introverted, you need to push yourself. I did this by choosing Speaking and Presentation Skills as my course next semester, and by getting a job at McDonalds which requires me to constantly interact with customers & employees. I'm already an ambivert.
It's very nice to be away from social situations and have time to reflect & be alone, though. It really is enjoyable to some (especially myself).
