Why Your Job Sucks If You're an Introvert
Let’s have some fun for just a few minutes.
I want you to pretend you have a time machine, and you can go back to being a little kid….back to the days when you daydreamed about how awesome your life would be when you became an adult.
What if someone came along and told you that 20 years from now, you’ll be stuck working a job that makes you feel like crap.
You’ll also be taking home a mediocre paycheck every 2 weeks. It won’t be a bad paycheck because you’ll still be able to afford a place to live and food to eat. You’ll struggle financially from time to time and may have to juggle bills here or there, but you’ll be okay.
You’ll basically be paid JUST enough money so you don’t quit.
The person also explains that you’ll constantly be passed over for promotions just because you’re one of the more quiet people in the office.
Because you're an introvert, you'll also be accused of being anti-social, or people will complain because you don't talk enough. Some will think you're stuck up or conceited because you don't feel like going to Happy Hour every Friday night after work.
When you do attempt to speak up, you'll be ignored and your ideas will be pushed to the side by your louder, more talkative co-workers. These will also be the same people who criticize you for being quiet.
Those annoying ass people in your office who don’t respect personal space, act like they know everything, and interrupt you while you’re talking?
They’ll be groomed for management positions while you continue to grind away in hidden obscurity, just like a worker bee.
"Why are you so quiet? Are you anti-social or something?"
