The Unique Qualities of Introverts
Are you introverted or extroverted?
How does this help, or hinder, you in your work?
You might guess that because I spend a lot of my life presenting on stage that I am naturally extroverted, but that is not entirely the case; I actually lean much more toward the introverted side of things!
It may surprise you to know that introverts tend to be less swayed by external events and more by their inner moral compass. And when by adding introverts to your workforce, you can provide a bit of a buffer against scandal as they tend to feel less pressure to cover up for a corrupt colleague.
They’ll also help to keep the company’s integrity intact as they are less likely to conform to an unprofessional work environment.
Now, I’m not trying to imply that all introverts are saints and that extroverts are somehow morally inferior! It is, however, some interesting food for thought when we generally work to promote the most outwardly confident and gregarious folks over the quiet ones!
