Personality. Has this busy and festive month got all the Introverts like… wah! And all the extroverts like… yeah! Tell us how your personality enhances or takes away from the current mood. What are your strategies to deal?
I've talked a lot about being an introvert. There are so many misconceptions, like introverts are shy (wrong), introverts don't like people (wrong), introverts are always so serious (wrong). Pretty much anytime you generalize over a population of people, you're making a mistake. No two people are alike. And no two introverts are alike.
But you know what? It doesn't matter what you think. It doesn't matter if introverts are bad at this or good at another thing. It doesn't matter if you compare introverts to extroverts and examine which is better or more advantageous.
There's no right or wrong way to be. No better or worse. We are all equal and for the most part, we are all doing our best.
The strategy is simple. Know thyself.
If you seek a deep understanding for who you are, accept yourself for exactly that person, and live unapologetically as that person, you can perform and achieve at the highest possible level. You'll know your strengths and play to them. You'll act bravely and confidently. And because you acknowledge your own limitations, you will act compassionately towards others.
