Introverts or Extrovert?
As an aspiring entrepreneur and a college student I always considered being an extrovert to being successful in building a business, a brand, a startup. Since business is all who you know and making new connections with people to build customers and new clients. However up until recently the mass majority of blogs, articles and the media have been selling the idea or the fact that introverts are the actual successful people, the one’s who lead others, the ones who make a true difference. Don’t get me wrong, it’s not that I can’t make out- the sense- in this because I can, more than most people would think; my problem is that I don’t understand how this selling of this method known as introversion can work during a time of hyper-social activity.
From Facebook, to Twitter, to this actual site I am using WordPress, we are selling and/or communicating online and whether we know it or not we are making online connections with people who we already know and getting new ones along the way from those people’s connections. My point is that is seems that we are living in a social bubble of socializing and make connections for business or simply for means of friendship.
How can we be told to tap into our inner introvert when the whole world is tapping into their inner/outer extrovert?
Socializing is even more than the norm especially with help of startups such as Twitter Instagram, Facebook and Meetups.com. It seems that although we are being told to become introverts the whole world is thinking and acting like an extrovert; talking, engaging, making noise both online and in the real world. It’s important to moderate what we are told to do, what we should do and what we want to do whether we are introverts, extroverts or just ourselves.
