The word ‘introvert’ is often thrown around as a synonym for shy or even socially awkward. And while introverts can have shy tendencies, introversion doesn’t mean social ineptitude — and it certainly doesn't need to be a career impediment.
We all have different personalities, preferences, and learning styles. And while we may think of introverts and extroverts as two extremes, most of us actually fall somewhere in the middle. Still, it helps to know whether you lean toward more introverted or extroverted tendencies when it comes to choosing a job. Take time to think about things like the daily tasks, role expectations, office culture, and team dynamics when you consider your career path.
