Are you the life of the party when it comes to going out and meeting new people? Or do you cringe in social settings and getting to know new people? No matter what, we all have times when we feel uncomfortable and anxious when we interact with new people, especially when it is the first time. We often say people are either introvert or extrovert, but the truth is we are all introverted and extroverted in some form during different situations. It is really about how we feel in whatever circumstance we are in at that time. So many people believe that if you are introverted you can’t connect with people or be successful. This is 100% completely wrong. Everyone is different and we all have powerful traits that can be used in many aspects of life. Using introversion or even extroversion as a reason why you can’t do something or get something done is just a simple excuse. It doesn’t matter how you identify yourself, being an introvert or extrovert is just your behavioral preference. Our power comes from getting out of our comfort zone no matter what we consider ourselves. We have to gain flexibility within ourselves. Remember to learn from your opposite and put yourself out there.
“It is actually a behavioral concept called reward sensitivity that lies at the heart of what makes an introvert an introvert, and an extrovert an extrovert.” –Unknown
