During the pandemic, many people found themselves working from home for the first time. For some people, working from home was hard, for others, it was something they relished, so much so that they began to stand out.

Introverts can thrive when they are left to work alone. Happy in their own company, they can find social interaction draining. This doesn’t mean they’re depressed or shy, they are happy to be a silent partner in the workplace.

When many people were asked to work from home, they may have had more alone time, and were, therefore, able to get on with their tasks without much (if any) draining social interaction.

Workplaces tend to be designed for extroverts, and it’s where they thrive. An introvert’s nightmare can be any workplace that encourages any form of social interaction. However, introverts are happy to share their thoughts from time to time, they simply feel less need to express their thoughts and ideas as much as their extroverted colleagues. 

Working from home allowed introverts to feel more in control of time management. Seeing fewer people allowed them to work on their own, at their own pace, and within minimal contact with their colleagues. With the ability to work in a more comfortable environment, introverts began to stand out.
