Yes, discrimination... It is all to common in hiring. It should be that the
person with the best skill set gets the job; reality is often different.

The applicant has to be a fit with the TW's already working there. You can not
come out and say this because it is not legally defensible. What you can do is
tell HR that this applicant's skill set does not match the criteria for the
position. That IS legally defensible, and you can always find some pick-snikkly
thing to defend your decision.

And most extroverts would love to hire an introvert! Extroverts can talk about
everything, anything, way to much, and way to often, debate everything way too
much, that they need an introvert to actually get the work done! (Grin)
