Making an introvert and an extrovert collaborate can be like plugging an extension cord into itself.

Journalism professors see this in the classroom all the time: When an outgoing student gets paired with a shy student for a group assignment, the two students frequently don’t know how to talk to each other. They rush through the assignment and then sit there quietly next to each other. At best, they use the group time to work independently. At worst, they start texting or daydreaming.

I’ve seen this same breakdown in social interaction happen when journalists and coders try to work together.
