Most companies look for extroverts
I agree totally with the article. However, most large corporations I have worked for, or been associated with, tend to push introverts to the background. I was able to survive in middle management in a global pharmaceutical, but was always being told to be more assertive, even more aggressive, and outgoing. Management tends to be dominated by extroverts. And they think and want everyone "on the management team" to be from the same mold. It was very frustrating and unnatural for me, and I saw many very bright and creative people ignored, because they could not morph themselves into the "corporate standard". I always felt this attitude was bad for the company, as well as the introvert.
