Being the only guy in the room who listens, thinks and calculates before taking action is an attribute that will not immediately bring you praise in your job. But after the extroverts go out and cause all kinds of problems doing everything on the fly because they never shut up and think about what they are doing or listen to what people are telling them, you will find that people will quickly begin to value your work in a very meaningful way and see you as indispensable. Most jobs do not require a lot of social interaction. In fact, many jobs are very short on social interaction. Sales is the land of the extroverts, but it is also one of the most miserable professions out there.
