Introverts do badly with this type of exercise, even if they are great designers. Being watched while thinking can make it hard to think. I prefer letting them have 20 minutes alone, then have them walk you through their thinking. That way you can see the thinking, see their ability to explain their thinking, and then have a conversation about their choices.

I don’t think design should have to be a kind of performance.
