Does the idea of answering questions on the fly, spending days in meetings, and having frequent work-related group outings make you uncomfortable? If so, you’re likely an introvert. At the office, many situations — conferences, drive-by questions, and after-work drinks — play to extroverts’ strengths. As Susan Cain, author of Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can’t Stop Talking comments, “Introverts feel most alive and energized when they’re in environments that are less stimulating–not less intellectually stimulating, but less going on.”
But despite this, it’s easy for introverts to flourish in the office, given their dedicated, focused approach to work, and their ability to listen closely to coworkers and bosses. Discover ten ways to thrive in the workplace as an introverted person.
