Those times that I refused to make decisions without careful analysis---and exploration of options---instead of jumping on the impulsive bandwagon of snap decisions--I often was left feeling as if I did not have faith--was a Negative Nelly.
Now I am not so introverted that I do not enjoy social interaction--but I prefer an intense one on one conversation to a night of idle chit chat at a huge social gathering. I want to hear what you are thinking and feeling---and use it for my thinking fodder and to know you better. You are important to me! My friendships run deep---and I like that!
I also can lead--and enjoy the stimulation of leading a discussion-teaching-conducting a business meeting. Have had to do the tough task of addressing employees that are not working---even the ultimate "We are not a fit" talk. Now--I can do all of this---but after it is all over I will probably go home and curl up with a great book.
I am reading a book--Quiet---you can click on it on the top right side of this page. Turns
SO bottom line---we all love to be around the extroverts in our life---but we introverts---we have a LOT to offer! Feel like you might have some introvert characteristics---strongly encourage you to read it. Easy read and SO reassuring!
