|Session Name:||The Calm in the Storm: An Introvert's Guide to Success|
|Company Name(s):||Vicarious Visions|
|Track / Format:||Advocacy|
|Overview:||Our society cultivates and rewards extroverts, even though one-third to one-half of us are introverts. As we continue to strive to be more inclusive of all diversities, the introverted person is easily overlooked and is often not utilized to their full potential. With things like open floor plan offices and large group meetings, game development can often exacerbate this trend. In this talk, Vicarious Visions' Joshua Huber will break down the introverted personality and share his experiences over the past 12-years as an introverted game developer and more recently as an introverted lead. Weaving information from the human and behavior sciences with real world game-dev examples, we will explore how to make your studio more inclusive of introverts, how introverts can use their personalities to their advantage, and how introverts fare in the more recent work from home environment.|
