I have written over a hundred blog posts as of this week. If you have been following this blog, you probably see I am a big believer that introversion is a natural way of being, not a weakness, and that we also have strengths that come from being an introvert. I get frustrated when people try to put introverts neatly in a box. We definitely have some common ground, but introverts are not all alike.
I have learned to embrace my introversion and also discover and celebrate my strengths. One example would be that when working on a project, I am able to see the big picture in my head and also envision how all of the pieces fall into place.
Now, not all introverts have this exact talent. There are many talents that others have because of their introversion that I do not possess. My introverted wife is a gifted graphic designer and photographer. She can create amazing images and take beautiful pictures in a way I never could.
I would really, really like to hear from you other introverts out there about what makes you STRONG. What is a top strength you possess because of your introversion? It is crucial that we learn to understand, appreciate, and celebrate each others differences, even among our fellow introverts. I know that you may not be someone that does a lot of commenting, but please consider it now to help move the introverted strengths conversation forward. My introverted wife has a joke that she comments a lot on blogs and Facebook, but only in her mind.
Please share your comment here and let’s really get the conversation going. Tell the world what makes you strong.
