I am not even familiar with the term 'forced socialising'.  As an extreme
introvert (99%ile) I would rebel but I don't think I would be traumatised.

Many in education and sociology believe in the Blank Slate - everyone is
alike; everone has the same potentials.  Stupid.  Won't fact genetic facts.

What do you have to do to get a Master's in Education:  have a pulse and a
Visa card.

Not trying to offend anyone!!  Just telling you my experience.
