Standing there in a long Que at the bank . My introvert nature taking its place. it was a very hot day The heat was made worse by this Extrovert who want to chat with every body, complaining about the heat. When other extroverts try to comment on the heat topic. He has already introduced a new topic about cabinet reshuffle . What a long day I said to myself .
I m an Introvert in an extrovert workplace
Just when I thought I had taken a break from my boss. An extrovert who takes control of all the talking in the meetings and make me feel like an idiot in front of the clients. Most of the time I will leave the meeting without saying a word,
He would cover all the areas including the areas I have prepared well. With my introverted nature I will be paralyzed with the fear of talking and end up with a mental block . I speak well when I have prepared, I have tried to highlight this to my boss by it seemed like when he see people he can’t stop talking. Sadly It is not easy to be an introvert in the corporate world
Introvertion can become a stumbling block to your career progression. learders need to be aware that we were fearfully and wonderfully created by God for a purpose and that extroverts and introverts together make the world.
My boss think that I have confidence issues. I wish I could convince him that I don’t have confidence issues I am an introvert and introverts are quite in nature but they have strengths too. I am a good Listner , I am good at putting my thoughts in writing and I am a good decision maker because I listen
Sometimes when I can’t express myself in meetings I wish I was an extrovert but the experience I have with my boss confirms that even extroverts have speaking challenges.
I would rather keep my introverted nature than being a talkative extrovert
