Introvert at the Top?

Introverts can lead.

I think.

Preferable to have someone in charge who's thought about stuff and perhaps who doesn't say everything at once, or exhaust the depths of their intellect in casual conversation.

Go here for some further comments, found thanks to an article on Compass.org.nz
It concerns leadership in churches; but perhaps the thoughts have wider application.

  1. Hope so.

    I came here to troll but haven't found much I can genuinely disagree with...yet :-)

    I think there are a lot of people in high political levels you might describe as "introverted": the current president of the EU; the current pres. of China (I think..?), maybe Jim Bolger?

    Obama is a great example of a man who is both extroverted and very rational, I think.
