Pros: You find comfort and peace when you’re alone. You learn how to focus on yourself rather on others and you learn more about yourself as a person and appreciate the solitude.
Cons: If having mental conditions like depression, it’s not always a good idea to be alone. Your thoughts would be clouded overwhelmingly and will probably stop enjoying the things you do when you’re alone. Going outside can be a good distraction. You’ll find it hard to interact with others and may miss the chances of exploring and finding things n the outside world2

More negatives than positives in my opinion, because let's say you become a wizard at something. Still a lot of the people running the show will be extroverted types, building social connections and climbing up the ladder that way and being enthusiastic about it. The introvert might be able to manage that sometimes but often in a way that will be exhausting where they're eager to retire home.
I'm an ambivert. I used to think I was an introvert and didn't get nearly as far, even in my career, in spite of publishing algorithms that became widely used in my industry while getting job offers left and right, until I unleashed the extroverted half. And when I did and started getting excited about seeing people and socializing, so many opportunities opened up to climb up the social ladder. Before I was stuck at the middle rungs until I became more enthusiastic about being around people.
That said, all the knowledge and practice I gained in my field, and what set me apart, was when I was a shy introvert being exhausted by seeing people and preferring to spend my time alone as a social recluse. So if I was strictly an extrovert, I'm pretty sure I wouldn't have been able to get to where I am now, and might have been worse off, at least successfully in terms of career, than when I thought I was an introvert. Being an introvert gave me some elite skills, but I wasn't able to climb as far just on skills alone lacking interest in socializing until I unleashed that extroverted side.2

Con most people won't even be able to get you, they won't understand you being that way and confuse it by being rude or so…
Pros (I love this one in particular) whenever you be in a group of people you just need to talk and they all will immediately shut up and pay attention to listen to you…1
