    … a theory is primarily a form of insight, i.e. a way of looking
    at the world, and not a form of knowledge of how the world is….
    .. all our different ways of thinking are to be considered as
    different ways of looking at the one reality, each with some
    domain in which it is clear and adequate….

    You hem me in -- behind and before;
    you have laid your hand upon me.
    Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,
    too lofty for me to attain.

    I work for a company dominated by (it was company policy for at least a decade to specfically hire) extroverted party people. The result? 6 billions emails a week on how they are recognising our brilliant people but a complete and total inability to get even the basics right. Our logistics dept hasnt a clue how to find its own arse with two hands let alone deliver a product to the customer. There is an inordinate amount of focus on focus groups, conference calls and getting the right PR in the newspapers. In the meantime the company goes from one crisis management weekend to the next. Guess they thought introverts interfered with the feel good factor in the office, too bad no-ones actually focused on the day to day operation of the business. i give it about 9 months before it folds.

    hmm.. I think introverts can be a boon, though it depends on the MBTI type.

    INTPs and INTJs can do well in generating ideas, reasoning out strategies, and tend to be teflon-like. they don't give a shit about being liked, but about getting things done. IMHO, a good manager should have either at his or her side, as s/he would always have somebody to generate/vet ideas.

    Introverts may not make small talk, but then this depends I guess on how other co-workers respond and their needs, and the industry and corporate culture. I personally am not one for small talk and endless chit chat, but then to be fair I'm there to work, not hang out. I generally hang out more and am far more open when i'm at a party or bar.
