Look at me!

There's a mildly interesting article in The Times about introversion.  Though it gets sidetracked into criticism of 'Big Brother', it partly gets past the relatively obvious observation that society favours interaction, and hence extroverts.  It also refers to an article I mentioned here back in October, which is probably the best I've read on the subject.

Incidentally, that's 'The Times', not 'The Times of London' or 'The London Times' - where did those metrocentric and just plain bogus titles come from, and why are they perpetuated, particularly in N.America?
The title is 'The Times'.  It just is.  It's a national newspaper covering the entire UK, not merely London.


I think they're just upset that they have to qualify theirs with "New York" :-)

I think it's because former colonies also having their own times. The New York Times, The Sydney Times, etc.

At least The Times of India took the national route from the start.

I live in New York now and they're very London or England-centric here. "The Queen of England", "The English Prime Minister". I'm sure it's very annoying for non-English Brits.
