Intuitive Introverts Make Great Connections

  • Social media success emphasizes QUALITY relationships rather than the QUANTITY of connections you have.
  • Whether you have realized it or not, introverts like you talk less and listen more, and are gifted with naturally intuitive abilities to seize up a person, and understand their verbal and non-verbal body language .
  • This is because.your focus is almost always on the other person.
  • You tend to be astute observers, and you can attune yourself to the person with whom you’re speaking.
  • This trait is also of great use on social media, where you reflect the same attitudes in your conversations with different people.
  • You will end up building strong, meaningful engagement and relationships, which are the heart of social media marketing.
  • This will give you the added edge!

 

 

If this sounds like you, you will find it comparatively easier to fit on social media and you will enjoy the challenges offered by it.

  • Your own quiet nature will help you in developing one to one relationships with those whom you engage with on social media.
  • People often tend to trust you, as you are quiet, focused and serious. Introverts also tend to be very good listeners and this is a very important skill set required for social media engagement.
  • You may have a good understanding of human behavior.
  • Many prominent business leaders are introverts.
  • These include those involved in top-notch positions in social media marketing field.
  • They are able to fine-tune their highly reflective internal life with the advantages of social networking – an advantage which extroverts may lack.
  • All you need to do is to emphasize your natural strengths, polish up on areas which may need more work such as communication and interpersonal skills, and engage in social networking strategies which are centered around your own style of working.

 

 

You will not find any other field in marketing which is as well suited for YOUR personality as social media.

  • If you are already an active user of Facebook or Twitter, you know how very easy it is to express your full selves on social media.
  • If you have not yet tried it out, do so today.
  • You’ll find that many introverts transform into extroverts online and back into introverts offline.
  • This ability to switch between both sides can help you to balance the demanding aspects of social media communication as well as personal management offline.
  • What will give you encouragement is that the usual barriers (which you may encounter in real life situations), such as shyness, awkwardness, stranger anxiety as well as hesitations in starting up or ending conversations are no longer existent on the social media platform.
  • You won’t be debilitated by these and you will be able to be yourself.

 

 

 

 

 

As an introvert, you can be as effective, if not more so, than extroverts in handling social media responsibilities, as many of your introvert qualities (good listening, building real relationships, being interested in human behaviorist) are the exact skills required in such  a role.

  1. I found your post interesting. I think if you understand how Social Media works, you can succeed as an introvert. I never thought about it like that before! And yes, like Danni said in the comment above, Social Media gives everyone a voice!
    Thanks,
    Amy

  2. I am an introvert and own a business as a Body Image Coach. I do feel discouraged at times, so I really appreciate the encouragement in this post. Thank you for highlighting the positive aspects of being an introvert!

  3. I am an introvert. I agree social media gives everyone a voice. I find it comfortable to interact with others on social media – I don’t fel any kind of pressure. And, I can pick and choose the amount of interaction – in other words, I have control over when, where and how much. I shared this on several social media.

  4. I LOVED this post! I am an introvert and so much more interested in quality of my friendships and conversations than the quantity. This post really spoke to me – thanks for sharing Joan…just shared this!

  5. Joan: I love the in-sights you give every day on your blogs. Wonder if you are an in-trovert. Because of the ‘social’ in Social Media, and how it is designed to keep one otherwise occupied, I think one of the key pieces in this post was your Zoey Smith quote and its mention of “Focus and Discipline”. Great words of advice to the the introvert – to go along with the great encouragement such a person is receiving. How do I know? Been There – Done That – Got the Tee Shirt. Keep on Rockin’ in a free world, Joan. Thank You, Thank You, Thank You. prp
