Some might conclude that people who are introverted are shy, withdrawn, socially awkward “wallflowers” who may even be a bit depressed. Extroverts tend to be seen as socially skilled, happy, and often the life of the party. But there is much more to the story. The qualities of introversion and extroversion have more to do with what gives a person energy, and what drains them. It’s about their preference for the internal world of thoughts and feelings, versus the external world of action and other people. [More]

management style and employee mental health is there a connection
In management circles, there is a popular saying that you are as good as the people you hire. Corporations are social entities that harness the extraordinary power of the collective, rather than relying on a few good individuals to gain prominence. True, there are few distinguished performers in all companies that act as the face of the enterprise, but that does not discount the contributions of a wide cross section of employees whose efforts and skills are indispensible to the corporation. For every Steve Jobs there are whole cadres of software programmers, project managers, product designers among others who help realize the company’s vision. [More]

Telecommuting was a term phrased in the 1980s to describe how the introduction of cordless phones and faxes enabled employees to work from home (WFH), thereby putting an end to the concept of a full-time office job. The same is now being said of the Internet. Of course, working from home has not been accepted as widely as onlookers predicted, but cybercommuting is becoming increasingly common. In 2010, 24% of employed persons did some or all of their work at home, while last year, the number of employees working regularly from home was 10% in the US alone. Like any other phenomenon prevailing in our society, WFH culture also comes with its own psychological effects. [More]
