You and a coworker step into an elevator. As you descend in the tiny metal box, the silence between you grows awkward. Suddenly your coworker blurts out, “Such a shame that we’re stuck in the office on a beautiful day like this!” You mumble, “It sure is.” As an introvert, you despise making small talk; it feels like your brain was literally not programmedfor it.
Conversationally, introverts prefer to dive deep. We want to know what’s really going on in your head, or to talk about something interesting we’ve read, heard, or watched, among other meaningful topics. And, it turns out, deep talk is actually good for us, whether you’re an introvert, extrovert, or neither.
