The gregarious and extroverted tend to have an easier go at meeting new people. Many of us introverts – the quiet ones who are easily overwhelmed socially – see the social ease our extroverted friends have and begin making excuses why we don’t have the same success.
While these excuses are all well-founded in some truths about being an introvert, they’re still fundamentally excuses.
In this video, I’m going to discuss the two most damaging excuses that we introverts make for not socializing and connecting with people. Then, I’ll show you exactly how to get over your excuses and start creating more social success today.
Don’t feel like watching the video? Here’s a quick summary of the video’s main points and actionable takeaways:
Excuse #1 – “Crowds Overwhelm Me. So, I Just Won’t Even Bother”: I totally relate to this. Bars, parties, networking events, and festivals are all incredible places to meet new people. But, with the noise and competing social opportunities, they’re also hell for introverts.
But, they don’t have to be.
Introverts are naturally gifted at personal, 1-on-1 interactions. Use your gift and give your attention and curiosity to one person at a time. This is easier for you and makes them feel like the most important person in the room.
Excuse #2 – “I Don’t Have Anything Interesting To Talk About”: Many introverts are accused of of ‘being in their heads’ all the time. Which is true! We’re often thinking through an idea we’re curious about or a situation that happened to us.
Instead of keeping these curiosities to yourself, bring them out in the open to the people you’re connecting with. Invite them to contribute or give their opinion on your ideas. This brings them into your world and allows them to invest in you. With your surplus of thoughts and ideas, you’ll never run out of things to talk about.
