Caring For Your Introvert, by Jonathan Rauch.
A lovely article. I'm going to take one sentence to heart. "I'm an introvert. You're a wonderful person and I like you. Now, please shush."
It really isn't personal, truly, but if you don't give your introvert appropriate space, after a long enough period of time they will break and say whatever is necessary to get you to GO AWAY. This includes the kinds of things that can get them fired, you fired, or cause divorces. So give us our space.
My only complaint about the article? It's too short. A complete second article (paper! probably) is necessary to discuss extrovert-introvert interactions, recognizing and responding appropriately to your other-verted boss/subordinate/spouse.
Or you could just read David Kiersey's Please Understand Me, or Please Understand Me II.
Thanks, Medley, for the link!
