Introverts And Politics

After reading the article below and seeing this quote it made me think about something I hadn’t really considered before. It’s quite obvious that politics favors extroverts. How does this bias impact policy decisions once elected? Seems introverts are probably underrepresented and this might cause some unfavorable outcomes for us (I am an introvert).

“Kari Lake comes across as someone who wants something,” said Steven Martin, a retiree and a loyal Democrat, outside a polling place in Scottsdale. “Katie Hobbs comes across as someone who wants to be left alone.”

I’d imagine introverts are probably underrepresented in all sorts of areas that require some public speaking and social interaction. I’m more introverted than extroverted but honestly I think of being introverted as a weakness so come off much more extroverted at work.


I can now voice myself in my closest team. But if you want me to speak in a group of a broader team of more than 10 people, it’s a no from me dawg. And you certainly won’t fear any feedback from me if you’re asking for opinions.
