Quiet person

May 29, 2015  •  Leave a Comment

Something has been bugging me for a while.  It seems in business and in photography, one needs to be a social extrovert.  You need to do well with people, social interactions, and be able to network.  I have struggled with this for years.  I consider myself a shy extrovert.  I really enjoy people, and if I'm alone too much I might go insane.  I, however, do not visit with people at parties very much.  I usually stand on the outskirts looking in.  Eventually I might strike up a conversation, but more than likely either someone will strike up a conversation with me or I will eventually leave.

I worry that this is going to affect both my skills in business, as I want to be in management, and in photography.  When I do make friends they are usually close and I have them for a very long time.  However, I worry that by not being a social butterfly, I will miss opprotunities, not succeed as much as I could otherwise, and limit myself.

One thing I do is I have to force myself to talk.  I don't mind being in front of people, but don't really enjoy group conversations.

Any advice would be helpful.

Blessings,

Andrew Krob
