"An introvert can't make it"

This is a regular bias that I keep hearing about. Is it true that an introvert is not a useful human asset for companies?


Wrong. They often build some of the top companies out there. I think there's a lot of misconception on what introvert means.
What a load of rubbish! If you go to any modern company you'll see that they're actively looking for a range of different personalities as we all have our strengths and weaknesses

Absolutely not! Each person has their strengths and weaknesses!
Well, Elon Musk has Asperger's but he's spearheading innovations in rocketry & sustainable energy. Sometimes being an introvert can give you an unfair advantage too. Since they're not usually used to social norms, they tend to be contrarian & build great things.

I will never agree with the stereotypes of society. Only one thing is important - the desire to develop, work, be a part of something big. For example, I am a person who does not like people, I am categorical about the choice of my environment. But this does not prevent me from working with a large flow of people. :)
Wrong. Don't set such limited beliefs upon yourself. You are what you believe. Be cautious about that.
