3 Tips For Introverts
Learn to embrace your interests:
Introverted people often feel most drawn to activities usually done alone:
- creating art
- watching movies
Even though these activities are often thought of as solo hobbies, you can still find a community who shares your interests.
- look into an online book club or review group
- explore movie clubs in your area or online
- look into local or virtual art classes
Use your strengths to your advantage:
- You’re a great listener.
- You take time to consider all angles of a challenge instead of impulsively rushing into action.
- You have a fierce commitment to privacy, and people know they can count on you to honor confidences.
- Sensitivity makes you a deeply compassionate person.
- Curiosity and imagination allow you to see things differently and offer new insight on difficult problems.
Modify behavior, not your identity:
- Speak to one new classmate after each class.
- Make small talk with a co-worker or other acquaintance.
- Accept a friend’s invitation to a party.
- Introduce yourself to someone in your walking group.
- Find one community or virtual event to participate in each month
