Why you need extroverted friends as an introvert!😊

No personality type is more idealized in our society than the extroverted personality type. Especially in business, extroverts are like the popstars entrepreneurs all recruiters look up to. Pretty much everybody wants to be like them, and honestly, I can’t blame them! Extroverts – are they really so special? Most extroverts are really fun to be around, and many for sure know how to win the crowd. That’s also why so many actors, singers, comedians, and public speakers are extroverts. Yet, not every extrovert is like that – even between extroverts, there are can be huge differences in character and personality that makes each extrovert unique. Still, most extroverts have it easier a lot easier than us the introverts, when it comes to social interactions and social life in general. Contrary to us introverts, extroverts are usually more open towards the new.

How to make and maintain new friendships as an introvert

As I’m living the life of an introvert myself, I know from my own experience how hard it can be to make friends. Real friends.

I used to be a very shy and reserved kind of person which – guess what – wasn’t really the easiest foundation to make any kind of friendships but I eventually figured it out and found a way around it. So here I am today, explaining to you how to make real friends and connections yourself so …

How to spot energy vampires & get rid of them

As you might know from my previous blogposts socializing is essential for every human being. Even for introverts! We all need to have friends in our lives and people we feel close to. As introverts, we are certainly no exception. We might survive longer without having any social contact just because our desire and need for constant social interaction is lower than those of extroverts, but despite that, we still need people we can talk to every now and then. One thing I find really important and I hope you can agree with me on this, is that we as introverts have to be very careful on who we choose to spend our energy on. Otherwise, we will feel completely drained after, only having a simple conversation with someone. This isn’t good at all, especially if the day has only started and you still have a lot of things on your plate to do later on.  Of course, often we can’t know in advance if a conversation will drain us from our energy.
