Is this Facebook now? I'd like to know the suprising advantages of being a procrastinator next please... Oh wait! Or how being an introvert makes you a better person, that'll really make my day!
Discover smarts early on = don't learn how to work hard, as per the bait text

this leads to

procrastinating and applying said smarts to get it done a bit closer to the deadline than is ideal

separately

an introvert (not keyboard warrior) is generally not as loud (perceived as rude by some) and more thoughtful (purely a (miss)perception formed because of the lack of quick fire action seen from others or unwillingness to pipe up on a topic, effectively not leading to inconveniencing people)

Very interesting read. And it is scarily accurate. I always tell my wife that I wish I could work so hard as her, then things would go better with me. But never have I needed to work super hard. Now it is finally catching up on me.
