Between a third and a half of the population of the world define themselves as introverts. They have more activity in the part of the brain involved in internal processing: problem-solving, remembering and planning. Introverts get energy from an “inner world” of thoughts, ideas, reflections and memories.
Think about that. Pretty much half the people you come across today:
- Don’t thrive on endless meetings
- Don’t want to solve a problem by talking about it for hours
- Don’t enjoy brainstorming
- Don’t want to attend away-days and conferences all the time.
