How do you make small talk with people you don’t really have much in common with? Working with a few people in the team and feel like there’s a wall between us I can’t break 😞

Anyone else frustrated with how people conflate introversion with social anxiety? I’m introverted but not socially anxious. And I know plenty of socially anxious extroverts.

Any advice on how to connect with people when you don’t partake in drinking culture? I feel pretty uncomfortable around heavy drinking and it seems like all any of my colleagues want to do :/

How to be seen as a leader / desirable manager to work with given strong introvert. Seems like those who draw energy from others vs alone time are the ones seen as top performers and leaders...

Are there any open positions for associates? I am a recent grad and have 1 year of ERP consulting experience (based in FL, but work remote). I am open to any role and would love suggestions. Thanks!

Any tips for how to make internal networking feel more natural? I know face time without a specific client need is important, but I can't find a way to make it feel authentic.

Today I realized that this bowl posts significantly less often than the majority of other bowls I subscribe to. ❤️ you all. Signed, A slightly extroverted introvert 😅🤓

Happy holidays, my fellow introverts, loners, misanthropes, holiday-haters, and all other categories averse to extended time with family and crowds!!!! 🤓🍾🎉

As an introvert , what do you do during New Year’s Eve? In my case, I either spend it with my family or just treat it like any other holiday night.

I started this bowl a couple years ago and never imagined it would get so many members. Maybe we aren’t the most chatty bowl but we show up when it counts! Thank you guys for the great conversations 🥰

My goal for 2020 is to only attend one team dinner and it will be my farewell dinner

Not all are like that, but Im irked by people who only have their jobs/rise up because they are extroverted/network. You have to pick up the slack on the project because they can’t do their job.

How do you guys think I should handle being shy? I enjoy the company of others, but can’t find my voice in a group and frequently find myself unintentionally cut off or other situations.

What is wrong with people that try to push introverts to present because they think “it’s good for us and we will get over it this way”?!? As an introvert I know that I need to know my stuff continue.

Is it appropriate to skip company holiday parties (whether formal or informal)? I like the holidays/my coworkers, but don’t feel like I fit in with them. I think I’d be happier doing my own thing.

I feel like I have no idea how to interact with higher ups. I am able to come out of my shell with peers since I feel comfortable and can relate with them. But I feel so stupid and awkward cont.
