The fear of public speaking is one of the most common phobias in the world, but the notion that this is more pronounced in introverts is a huge misconception. Today my special guest Cinnamon Wolfe and I have a deep dive discussion about what it's like to be a speaker/educator and attend these live events as an introvert. Join us as we take some time to learn a little bit more about what being an “introvert” really means so we can lean into our strengths and serve people in a way that we may not have been able to before.

Episode takeaways you don’t want to miss:

  • Being an introvert doesn’t mean you’re a loner

  • Introverts prefer one on one conversations

  • Podcasting is a great way to practice educating, speaking and communicating with others

  • Being an introvert doesn’t mean that you’re terrified of speaking in front of large crowds, but engaging with small groups of your listeners after giving a talk might be exhausting and emotionally taxing

  • Introverts tend to do very well in situations where their role is very clear

  • As an introvert, not having the time to sit back with your personal thoughts can be mentally exhausting. It’s important to give yourself space in the day to mentally recharge

  • The conception that introverts just want to go hide in the corner is categorically false

  • There are several good resources available for you to study your personality type and how to best manage it. If you feel you’re an introvert, read Susan Cain’s book “Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can’t Stop Talking”
