On the wide spectrum between introversion and extroversion, I’ve always imagined myself sitting roughly in the middle. With a slight bias toward introversion, perhaps. As I enter my fifth week of working from home full-time, I’m struck by how important work — and the office, in particular — is for fulfilling the extroverted side of my personality. Done well, work culture provides real human connection and friendship.
