UX Awesomeness Through the Introvert/Extrovert Spectrum
What we can learn from one another, and how to leverage the strengths of our colleagues.
Whether the idea of introversion speaks to you, or you more readily identify with more extroverted qualities, everyone can benefit from tapping into their quiet side.
We set out to discover how many designers tend to be more on the introverted spectrum, and what makes them successful. We poured over findings from surveying over 100 people about the topic, 6 one-on-one interviews, and a group discussion with 20 UX’ers.
It’s our goal to inform all of us on the introvert/extrovert spectrum of the amazing differences in strengths we all possess that, when combined, make up super teams of professionals.
