    HBR equating introversion with shyness really rankles. They’re not the same thing! I am an introvert because I recharge with alone time or hanging with just my family. I am not shy about speaking up in meetings, chatting with people at networking events, or giving a presentation. The perspective I wish companies would have is that events out of work hours make me feel less “on” the next day than if I’d had that time to myself.

    • Jenn S. says:

      I agree, Cat. I’m not only not-shy, I am specifically known for being outspoken! It feels like pieces like this are done by extroverts who don’t, “get it.” (Not that an extrovert cannot, “get it,” just that this/these ones don’t.) I need time to decompress in my own space without a bunch of other energy so I can return sharp and ready to tackle what the workday has ahead.

The Find: A Striped Tee

Without question, the most worn item in my wardrobe is a black-and-white striped tee. I wear it in winter under sweaters, in spring with white jeans, in summer with black shorts.
