In this 2019 GDC talk, game maker Cecile Hemery offers an understanding of what it means to be an introvert, how to see the world as one, and the wealth of skills and perspectives they bring to the workplace environment.
She also served up some interesting insights into what it means to be an introvert (hint: not just "shy"), as well as how teams and studios can help enable introverts' growth, benefit from their unique contributions, and support their well-being.
It was an interesting talk that afforded the audience a deep dive into a complicated topic that everyone knows about but few consider in depth, despite the impact it can have on your community and workplace. If you missed seeing it at GDC this year, take advantage of the fact that Hemery's talk is now available to watch on the official GDC YouTube channel!
