Our oldest son takes after me. He can talk to anyone, anywhere about anything and has no problem talking to random strangers. Our younger son is more like my wife, quiet and more reserved. While friendly and social, he is less inclined to go out of his way to meet new people. With regards to the team choice, if we were faced with the situation presented by your son's teacher, we would for sure let our son make his own choice on the team choice. Our view is that we can't change our kids' basic personalities. So we tend to let them chart their own path. Just my opinion - no right or wrong answer.
