Workplaces are increasingly designed to foster teamwork, guided by beliefs such as these:
"None of us is as smart as all of us""Innovation ... is fundamentally social""Many jobs that we regard as the province of a single mind actually require a crowd"
Open plan offices and group brainstorming sessions are physical manifestations of this mindset. The problem is, they may actually decrease productivity, particularly for introverts. To understand why, we must understand the drivers of introversion.
