There are many perceptions of what an introvert is/ does/ how they act, most are wrong (and negative). The articles on this page are about those perceptions, tactics you can use and how you can improve yourself whilst still being you. Scroll down for articles about introversion, past a couple of adverts first.

Being introverted means you may be quieter, but it doesn’t mean you have to be any less successful in business. You can be quietly successful and be more effective at work, despite the extrovert bias that exists in the business world.

Articles about being quietly successful.

I hope that you find some (or all) of these articles interesting. They come from many of the research interviews I complete about introversion every month, or because I’ve helped people implement them.

To be successful don’t try to stop being introverted, focus on being brilliant at who you are. When you harness your introvert super-powers and “deal with” some of the “issues”  that some people perceive you have, you can be successful on your terms. Don’t try to be extroverted, be the best you possible.
