I love going out of my way to talk to people,but I am in sales. If you can't connect with someone on a personal level, its not going to be a sale. The world is just full of fun places and cool people to talk to,but if you don't do anything your not going to see it.
I consider myself to be an introvert. For the most part I have personally lost faith in humanity. I was brought up in a world where I was taught that working hard gets you further in life. This has turned out to be morbidly false when considering the American job market. I was brought up in a world where my parents told my life was fair. That is clearly not true. I generally expect honesty and trustworthiness from people and I have been shown that many people aren't even capable of that. I prefer to stay to myself, that way I'm not disappointed as often.
I consider myself an introvert. The reason is because I am very quiet and at times a lot more in my head than other individuals. I am also very creative and have extraordinary artistic, music, and other abilities that makes me a introvert. Introverts are very valuable to our society because we add the flavor, passion and drive that brings enjoyment to many people. Enjoyments such as movies, art, music and much more.
I am definitely an introvert. I like books. I like to do specific activities by myself. I love getting lost in a book or movie. I also like to socialize. Love it, actually. Just not too much of it. It wears me out and I need to recharge. Introverts have a bad wrap.
Primarily, I consider myself an introvert. I feel uncomfortable in situations where there are people that I am not familiar. Most people would not know that I am an introvert because even in uncomfortable situations, I appear talkative and outgoing. Inside, I am squirming and sweating. I prefer to be in comfortable surroundings with people that I know well.
I am slightly more sensitive to changes in light, Small noises, And other little details that could often be overlooked; I am VERY sensitive to throngs of people blanketed in a deafening wall of chatter. It feels very claustrophobic. I sometimes even hold my breath to avoid inhaling the person right next to me. For a long time, I'd thought I was just a weirdo. I enjoyed time by myself, Pondered really deep topics, Was not much of a talker, And often had to take breaks from people. Then I read Quiet Power by Susan Cain, And that blew me away. I mean, I felt like Mrs. Cain was talking to me. For introverts and extroverts alike, I recommend that you read this book. Maybe you'll feel the same way.
