Thank you for this article. In my observation in Germany, the extrovert trend has arrived here. Talkers with narcissistic traits are being promoted, while introverts have to wait for their turn. Extroverts are quicker at making an impression - regardless of their skills, while introverts don't force their personality on others. Naturally, it takes longer for them to shine. This pattern is quite harmful as an extrovert leader, who is not competent but convincing in his verve, can damage organizations and teams.
