At work, introverts are (quietly) standing up for themselves


A quiet revolution is taking over our workplace, led by rebels who are among the most misunderstood and undervalued in the nation – our introverted colleagues.

Usually preferring calmer and minimally stimulating social situations, many introverts are speaking up to protest against the myriad bosses who aggressively discriminate against the more reserved types when it comes to filling top jobs – the practice of introversion-ism.

Tired of being told to “speak up more often”, “leave their comfort zone“, “come out of their shell”, “be a team player” and “mix more”, our introverts are rebelling against their bosses’ gravitational pull towards those with massive personalities, strong opinions and charismatic tendencies – their extroverted colleagues.

Introverts argue they neither fear nor dislike others and most definitely are not lonely despite frequently attracting undesirable tags including being guarded and private.
