If you have a child who’s an introvert with a sensitive nervous system, nurture the unique gifts that come with that.
Many of the world’s most influential artists, spiritual leaders and creative thinkers are in this group.
Yes, we love your kids, husband and other friends too. But we will feel disconnected from you if we don’t get to the heart level in our conversations and that usually requires being one-on-one.
In general, we don’t enjoy groups–they’re simply too much for our nervous systems to process. And surface-talking groups are so overwhelming that they make it almost impossible for us to do that well.
A characteristic that introverts display is being quiet most of the time.
This doesn’t mean they’re shying away from you or planning an evil scheme.
They’re creative, often intelligent, and full of surprises.At work, we may come off sounding like we don’t know what we’re talking about, even when we do.In the classroom, we may shrink from raising our hand, because we know it will be hard to put our thoughts into words while our classmates stare at us.Don’t take an introvert’s silence as a means of their disinterest in you.If anything, it means they’re comfortable being around you.
