What are the difficulties of being an extrovert?

I am an introvert. And I have my own personal difficulties from being so. But I was curious to know what might be difficult for you extroverted people out there, because of your extroversion. Or what misconceptions there might be about extroversion. What are the pros and cons of extroversion?
And just so we're on the same page of what introversion and extroversion are, here's a couple videos on defining introversion and extroversion.

    Oct 23 2013: I was an Introvert at a time in my life...and Now I am a Extrovert by choice..
    Mentioning in my life doesnt mean I am old or experienced life in every aspect, but I have realised that it is better to be an extrovert. (m just 23yrs) Nobody will come and talk or share stuff with you from their busy schedule, so the loss is of the introvert. Being an extrovert doesnt only mean that you initiate talks but also means sharing stuff with people, because i consider talking to anyone is like kinda sharing experiences. Experiences shared and learning from the same develops your own personality. We cant just be a introvert and wait one extrovert to come and talk to me, rather I would prefer to be the one who always starts a conversation which would thus help me majorly and the other person too...Small thing but true i guess....
