Introvert Or Extrovert? Here’s Another Way To Think About Your Personality

Fast Company

Oct 2, 2017

The popular dichotomy between introverts and extroverts obscures a more important factor: how well you can adapt your personality to a given situation.

Maresa Friedman, founder of the Executive Cat Herder, a strategy firm, has learned to do this herself. Like Lenier, she’s usually mistaken for a clear extrovert despite often being “happier at home with a book, not talking to anyone.” Sometime in her twenties, Friedman started noticing her more introverted coworkers getting passed over for promotions and opportunities “because dominant voices that were constantly heard were from the extroverted people.” So she figured she could be strategic about it.
