Listen to this episode

In this episode, Christina Martini discusses:

  • Her fascination with the topic of introverts and how it started, including a professional event featuring  Susan Cain and her book, Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can’t Stop Talking.
  • Qualities and characteristics that tend to differentiate introverts from the rest of the pack.
  • 10 Tips for living and working with introverts.
  • The importance of understanding and respecting the personality traits of those around us.

 

Key Takeaways:

  • At least 1/3 of the people we know are introverts, these qualities and predilections should be considered in the context of our careers and interactions with others.
  • The introverts among us should understand that our natural tendencies can sometimes lead to self-limiting behavior and that sometimes we need to turn it off.
  • We all, introverts and extroverts alike, must make a concerted effort to balance the benefits of different types of working styles and contributions, and work together to reach optimal results for our clients.
  • One of the most important things we can all do is to understand and respect the different personality traits of those around us.

 

“We all need to embrace who we are, and to understand our natural tendencies. Whether an introvert or an extrovert, there is no right or wrong – we are wired a certain way, and we need to acknowledge and accept this about ourselves.” —  Christina Martini
