How to overcome feeling ignored, overlooked, and misunderstood.
Many speakers and actors are also introverts. In today’s extroverted business world, introverts can feel ignored, overlooked, and misunderstood. In fact, according to my research—a two-and-a-half-year national study of introverted professionals—four out of five introverts say extroverts are more likely to get ahead in their workplace.
