Introvert in a world designed for extroverts

Hi Rikke, Nice post. Being an introvert in business can be tiring some days. We’re expected to be upbeat and collaborative a lot of time — putting on the hat of team. Sometimes I just put my headphones on, to avoid conversation, which is not to say I don’t really love talking to colleagues and friends, but just to centre myself in the moment of what I am doing. I do envy extroverts and their ability to move through a room with confidence and the way they feel success through collaboration and boisterous, robust dialog. On the other-hand too, I love the idea that the power of introverts comes from within.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
