How Introverts Can Network Without Losing Their Minds

How Introverts Can Network Without Losing Their Minds | Introverted Leadership | Scoop.it

Introverts recharge by spending time alone. They lose energy from interacting with other people for long periods of time, particularly in stimulating, crowded environments.

 

Extroverts, conversely, lose energy from spending time alone. They recharge by interacting with other people in highly social environments.

 

This personality dimension has nothing to do with shyness. According to author Susan Cain, presiding commander in chief of the introverts, shyness is a fear of negative judgment, while introversion is a preference for quiet, minimally stimulating environments. In other words, a lack of interest in socializing (introversion) is clearly different than fearing it (shyness).
