While I've always described myself as an introvert, I would say that I've gone from insecure introvert to assertive introvert since I started working in development. Small talk isn't part of the job description and I don't have to do it if I don't want to. I've noticed that small talk can be used to fill time so you can talk about anything. I'll talk about D&D, cultural differences, food, martial arts, etc. and people often. If they don't care or talk about stuff I don't care about then I'm done, introverts can live without small talk.
