Hope For The Shy Corporate Professional

Or to be more accurate, introverts. If you're prefer a smaller social circle and need a little alone time after large social events to get back to being yourself, you have a lot in common with many corporation CEOs and top executives, who often say that it's lonely at the top and confide in a small circle of friends to stay connected.

Included in a list from the article from USA Today.com:

- William Swanson of Raytheon Company (NYSE:RTN)
- Jim Green, formerly with Sun Microsystems, Inc. (NASDAQ:SUNW) and now CEO of Composite Software
- Chris Uhland of SkyeTec CEO
- Chris Scherpenseel, president of Microsoft's FRx Software subsidiary and the
Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) Chairman himself, Bill Gates

As stated in the article, some organizations don't see the rise of many introverts because they are seen as uninspiring, but that same personality trait can be seen elsewhere as calm, unemotional and wise.
