6 Things You Thought Wrong About Introverts

6 Things You Thought Wrong About Introverts | Introverts are inspiring | Scoop.it

If common stereotypes have anything to say on the matter, it's that introverts are socially awkward loners who abhor large crowds and just don't like people very much. An introvert may not be a particularly friendly or happy person, but hey, at least they're smarter and more creative than the average extrovert.

 

Despite comprising an estimated one-third of the general population, introversion may be one of the most frequently misunderstood personality traits. But the silent revolution of introverts -- catapulted into the spotlight largely by the work of Susan Cain, author of Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can't Stop Talking -- is shedding light on the experience of introverts living in a culture that tends to value extroverted qualities like assertiveness and outspokenness over solitude and quiet contemplation.

Amy Melendez's curator insight, August 27, 2014 12:31 AM

From the article: Networking is vital and you will need to build, develop and nurture your relationships but you can do this on your own terms. Occasionally, you’ll need to step outside your comfort zone – who doesn’t? – but you don’t have to be a super-connector to be a success. (but it won’t hurt to have a few in your network!)

Personal Branding for Introverts

Personal Branding for Introverts | Introverts are inspiring | Scoop.it
Build your reputation — without the schmoozing.

by Dorie Clark - 'I had just finished a talk at a leading technology company when an engineer approached me. “I liked your ideas about personal branding, and I can see how they’d work,” he told me. “But most of them aren’t for me — I’m an introvert. Is there anything I can do?” What he didn’t realize is that (like an estimated one-third to one-half of the population) I’m one, too.'

Accept no one's definition of your life.

Define yourself.

~ Harvey Fienstein


Definition does not mean that we do not tolerate other opinions, it means that we try to stand out from the crowd in being unique and following our own style.

So true Karin!  I have been using the internet intentionally for over a year now to share my definition of myself and what I am about.  Thanks for the wise post!
