Often times introverts are characterized as being shy and unassertive because they tend to be more introspective before taking action. This is sadly a myth perpetuated in the corporate environment; introverts can be just as confident and enthusiastic. We just need something that excites us! Companies are definitely more geared towards the extrovert in terms of selling yourself for a job interview, promotion, raise, etc. At least for myself, I tend to believe my value and contributions speak for themselves. A gentle reminder is always helpful but tooting my own horn is definitely a challenge in the workplace. Thank you for such a great article. It's something that needs to be said!
