In 2012 author Susan Cain published a book of non-fiction titled “Quiet: The Power of Introverts”, offering a historical account of how Western culture changed from a culture of character to a culture of personality in which an “extrovert ideal” dominates and introversion is viewed as inferior. There is a great deal of debate on this matter, but one conclusion of the book that perhaps we can all agree on: many of our workplaces are designed for the natural extrovert. So how can an someone with an introverted personality get recognized at work, especially when competing with all of those extroverts? This article by Stephanie Peterson explains how the introvert can get noticed.
