10 Habits of Successful Introverts
Build deep relationships
While extroverts might be more comfortable networking, introverts build deep personal relationships with friends and colleagues from a solid foundation of trust and support.
Introverts tend to be dedicated researchers and give careful consideration when drafting project plans.
Think before speaking
Before speaking or joining a conversation, introverts contemplate what they want to say and how they will say it so that it is the most productive contribution possible.
Creativity from within
J.K. Rowling developed her initial concept for Harry Potter when she was commuting alone via train. She describes the process, “I simply sat and thought, for four (delayed train) hours, while all the details bubbled up in my brain, and this scrawny, black-haired, bespectacled boy who didn’t know he was a wizard became more and more real to me.”
Don’t jump to conclusions
Introverts are measured in their decision making and hiring and they take time to assess and process situations.
Know their limits
Introverts recognize their own boundaries. They ask for guidance and support when they feel like they are in unfamiliar territory.
Introverts are actually great team leaders, but they are also successful when working independently.
Since introverts have often struggled to get their true talents seen and appreciated, they are generally quite respectful of the different working styles and preferences of others.
Introverts don’t give up easily. They have practice trying to get their thoughts and voices heard over the cacophony created by extroverts.
Introverts are fantastic active listeners. They don’t interrupt, but listen carefully to extract meaning.
