Ever wondered why some people prefer working alone? Why they shy away from pair programming or sits mostly quiet on the meetings?
It might be that that person, like me, is an introvert.

Drawing from almost 15 years of personal experience being an introvert on agile teams I will talk about the differences of being an extrovert
