Victoria University in the University of Toronto held a workshop earlier this week called Being An Introvert in an Extrovert’s World, which addressed “the difficulties introverts encounter in university and provide tips for overcoming them, and for discovering the strengths that introverts bring to the table.” What a fabulous idea! Going to university or college can be quite an overwhelming experience, especially for residents of smaller communities who may be living in a big city away from their friends and family for the first time, and even more so if they are also introverts. It’s great to see that someone recognizes this challenge and is actually doing something to help. Having a better understanding that introversion doesn’t have to be a liability will continue to be beneficial as they leave the academic world to begin their careers.
