The world seems to favor the extroverts but the introvert has a lot to offer, too.

Key Points:

  • Introverts are great people. Our culture places a lot of emphasis on extroversion and friendliness. But the world needs introverts, too, and their strengths are often overlooked.
  • Don’t apologize for your personality type. You have to figure out your personality and what works for you and then go and be a contributor in your world.

Quote This:

I’m an introvert… I love being by myself, love being outdoors, love taking a long walk with my dogs and looking at the trees, flowers, the sky. -Audrey Hepburn
