This project examines introverts in leadership. It seeks to determine why they seem to be so underrepresented in leadership positions and if there’s any validity to this observation. I am using two primary sources; peer-reviewed literature as well as personality tests and questionnaires which were completed by my management team at my organization. The literature will show that there is a severe imbalance of personality types in leadership roles, explain why this occurs and what can be done about it from both the perspective of an introverted employee and managers who may want to pursue untapped resources.
