Confessions of an Introvert
I’m excited to partner with my brilliant and talented friend, Loree Sanchez, every week to provide you content that will help you be a better teammate, peer, and overall influencer. Today we discuss differences between Extroverts and Introverts, including how we can best partner together. The Jung-Myers theory describes two kinds of mental processes: aking in or gathering information and making decisions and coming to conclusions about that information. Everyone has a preferred way of using these mental processes. People who prefer INTROVERSION focus in-depth on a few interests, learn best by reflection, mental “practice,” and take the initiative selectively—when the situation or issue is critical to them. People with a preference for INTROVERSION reflect more, be quieter, keep enthusiasm inside, reflect before responding to questions, wait for space, be more contained, and harder to read. I’m hoping you could send me a DM on Instagram with your biggest takeaway from today’s episode. What actions will you take to help you better connect with your Extroverted/Introverted friends?
