True Love for Little Introverts

I’d like to begin with a quote from Thornton Wilder to remind us of the realities of childhood and the tenderness of a child’s heart.

“Many who have spent a lifetime in it can tell us less of love than the child that lost a dog yesterday.”

For any child, a pet can be one of the most meaningful and memorable experiences of childhood but for introverted children, it can actually be a lifeline, a saving grace and a haven from what sometimes seems like an alien set of demands in the world around them.! I’m the IntrovertZCoach and I present surveys on my website for introverts because I like to find out straight from the introverts themselves what makes them tick, what makes them sick and what makes them kick!

Part One Of 'The Introvert Advantage' by Marti Laney

Success Books - "The Introvert Advantage" Part 1



Are you a “deep” person? Do you like to spend long hours pondering a problem? Does small talk irritate you? Do large gatherings deplete you? Are you not as “fast on your feet” verbally as others?

TIPS FOR PARENTING

As the IntrovertZCoach, my job is to help my introverted clients develop a positive self image. You see, for many years people didn't understand that introversion is a legitimate personality style. The great psychiatrist, Carl Jung, who was an introvert himself, was the first to give this fact positive validation. That was a great day for introverts!

Introverts make up around 30% of the general population. Prior to carl Jung's discoveries, our personalities were defined by the 70% majority who think we are shy, anti-social, even neurotic and mentally ill.

Introverts aren't mentally ill. In fact, there's nothing wrong with us at all. Let me explain where I think the confusion comes from. When extroverted people become stressed they tend to drink, smoke and can get violent. Obnoxious as this behavior is, it is not considered mentally ill. When introverts become stressed, they tend to withdraw and can…
