Benefits of Coworking Spaces for Both Introverts and Extroverts

When it comes to the workplace, it can be difficult to design an environment that works for everyone’s personality. While some people prefer to work independently with less noise, others may thrive in busy environments with coworkers just an earshot away.

Although not everyone defines heavily as an introvert or extravert, we all come with our own set of preferences regarding social interactions. As it turns out, coworking spaces come with the perfect blend of traits to benefit introverts, extroverts, and everyone in between.

We’ve done the research, so you don’t have to! Here are the adaptable benefits of coworking spaces for both introverts and extroverts.

Coworking Spaces for Introverts

 It has been a recent social media trend to portray introverts as elusive or disliking the presence of others. However, according to Healthline, “Introversion itself isn’t a measurable personality trait. Rather, introversion refers to low levels of extroversion.”

With that being said, introverts often show signs of working better in a quiet environment. When possible, they prefer to work independently rather than on a large team where each step of a process involves a discussion. Furthermore, they may be a bit more reserved in social settings.

Flexible Options

 It is a common rumor that introverts hate interactions with others, however, that’s not quite true! Many introverts enjoy the company of others. However, they do like the option to remove themselves from chatty areas to work in silence. The variety of coworking spaces offered through Catalyst Kanata gives the option for workers to be as immersed or as removed as they would like to be.

Less Pressure

More and more businesses are moving their companies to coworking spaces where employees can choose to work from home part-time and in the coworking office on select days. This gives individuals who thrive in their own space a chance to shine from the comfort of their own homes. 

Furthermore, it allows introverted employees to come back to the coworking space feeling recharged and ready to collaborate! 

Coworking Spaces for Extroverts 

As stated by Simply Psychology, “Extroverts may wish to seek out as much social interaction as possible because this is how they feel more energized. According to estimates, extroverts outnumber introverts by about three to one.”

As you can imagine, extroverts do better in settings where they can collaborate and feed off of the high energy of others. This means that extroverts are built to thrive in a coworking space where they can be near other invigorating professionals.

Networking Opportunities

Since coworking spaces bring together businesses and entrepreneurs from various industries, that means there are also more networking opportunities for those professionals. Through Catalyst Kanata, extroverts can elect to rent a coworking space that is open and near other professionals.

Motivational Environment

Sitting near the buzz of other businesses, entrepreneurs, and professionals can be a very motivating environment for those who enjoy busy atmospheres. In fact, many extroverts testify that they find inspiration while working near or in collaboration with other hard workers.
