If I were to ask a hundred CEOs to define their ideal employee, I think I’d probably hear something like:
Somebody who’s creative, reliable, takes feedback well, is easily motivated, handles deadlines well, works well with others (collaborates), and is well spoken and ethical.
1. Introverts are generally more creative.
Introverts are famously more creative than extroverts. According to the journal Perceptual and Motor Skills, “Creativity is a problem-solving response by intelligent, very active, highly emotional, and extremely introverted persons.”
2. Introverts are more consistently creative.
Two studies of creativity among college undergraduates revealed that while extroverts are more creative when they’re in a good mood, introverts remain creative even when they’re in a bad mood.
