Whether you’re planning for the future or striving to make it through the next week, everyone has goals they can envision and define. But, because they aren’t tangible until you’ve obtained them, it may seem as though you’ll never reach some of the goals you’ve set for yourself — you’ll just keep working toward them in…

Don’t Believe Everything You Read about Introverts

This morning I posted a rant on Facebook in defense of the Introvert Person (ality).  What had set me off was an article someone had submitted for publication right here on the Introvert Whisperer blog. The article profiled Introverts wrong, negatively and with bias.  It’s not the first time I’ve seen or heard inaccuracies because…

Before I joined Deloitte in the summer of 1993 I’d spent some years working and studying at the Catholic fortress, University of Dallas.

Are you Living up to Your Label?

I was having an interesting conversation with a friend yesterday and I was telling her about my dislike in being labeled.  I’ve long had an aversion at being called “Mrs.” or even “Ms.” but the aversion extends far beyond just those titles.  I simply don’t like to be categorized.  People do like to categorize each…

An introvert’s guide to preparing for a meeting

Oh no, another meeting?! Your colleagues may be the loveliest people, but as an introvert the idea of rounding them all up at once for a group chat probably feels both unpleasant and unproductive. You do your best work on your own or one-on-one; a meeting is just a chance to get your ideas drowned…

Trust but Confirmation Needed on What You Contribute - Introvert Whisperer

Trust but Confirmation Needed on What You Contribute

I read something yesterday that still has me thinking.  It was about “confirmation”.  The point was that when you hear a positive thing, you really want to confirm if it’s true or real but for some reason when you hear something bad you assume it’s true.  We’re kind of confusing creatures, don’t you think?  …

Getting to Grips with Office Politics

Getting to Grips with Office Politics

If you work in an environment with more than two people you have likely experienced office politics and it can be difficult to deal with if you don’t have a knack for it, especially for those who are naturally introverted. It can seem daunting when everyone around you is competing and you don’t want to…
