I'd tend to agree with you here, but I wouldn't limit it to *tech*
writers, but to writers in general.

In addition, like you I believe that "extrovert" and "introvert" are
widely misused. For example, a large number of people who label
themselves as "introverts" tend to not grasp that diffidence, for
example, doesn't always go along with the introversion.

We keep seeing the confusion of "assertive" and "aggressive" in this
thread, too. I would think that "all aggressive people are assertive,
but not all assertive people are aggressive" would about sum it up!
