3 Tips For Introverts

Share

Learn to embrace your interests:

Introverted people often feel most drawn to activities usually done alone:

  • reading
  • journaling
  • creating art
  • watching movies
  • hiking

Even though these activities are often thought of as solo hobbies, you can still find a community who shares your interests.

Try:

  • 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:

For example:

  • 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:

Consider trying:

  • 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
