Our guidance on what to do if you're not a "people person".

In 2018, Linux's creator Linus Torvald announced he was taking a break from working, in order to work on his "people skills". Specifically, he said, "get some assistance on how to understand people's emotions and respond appropriately." Like Steve Jobs, Torvald was famous for his outbursts directed at individuals and groups working on Linux. What could he have been learning in his break? We can make some educated guesses. If you've ever been told, or thought to yourself, like Torvald, "I'm not a people person" or "I need to work on my people skills" this is the guidance for you.
