Do you avoid confrontation? Does small talk bore you? Have people told you that you're "too intense" or that you "get deep quickly?" Do you live inside your head? Do people see you as a good listener? Do you rarely interrupt others? Are you better at writing thoughts than speaking them? Are you good at focusing for long periods on tasks that you're really interested in, but totally checked out of tasks that bore you or that feel superficial? If so, you might be an introvert. And today's episode might be for you.

012: On INFJs, Deflecting Bad Juju + Being A Highly Sensitive Person w/ Jenn Granneman Of Introvert, Dear

WANTcast: The Women Against Negative Talk Podcast

I am an emotional sponge. I walk into a room and can instantly feel whether people arerelaxed or tense. I can speak two words to you and feel what’sgoing on. And you can bet yer bottom dollar that I internalizewhatever energy is swirling around me. For the longest time, I felt like an outsider – and trulyweirded out by the fact that things as small as people laying ontheir car horns in rush-hour traffic would leave me shaken for agood few minutes. And then I found out that not only was I not alone, but that Icould work with what I’ve got – and it was my greatest asset inthis world. If you’ve been reading and listening for a while, it *probably*doesn’t come as a surprise to you that I’m into personality tests,personality indicators, and the psychologybehind personality types. I find any chance tolearn more about the inner workings of others, and myself,absolutely fascinating. About 6 years ago, I stumbled upon the Myers Briggs Type Indicator (here’s one you can take forfree!), took the test, and the results completely blewmy mind. All this time, when I had been thinking “Oh, I’m sodifferent. Oh I don’t fit in,” berating myself forfeeling awkward in certain situations while in others I’dcompletely own it, or the big understanding gap there seemed to bebetween myself and certain people, or why I’d get into the sameruts over and over…now EVERYTHING started to makesense. THEN I read a book that was recommended to me called theHighly SensitivePerson by Elaine Aron. I think I cried when I read it the firsttime through. Because again, this was so much of who Iwas – that I was either trying to fight against or wasstruggling to understand/make others understand – I had just neverhad words to describe it.Introvert, Dear is the #1 website andcommunity dedicated to introverted personality types ANDHSPs. This site is followed by literally hundreds ofthousands, the community is SO strong, and it’s a resource that’sreally helped me when it comes to not just understanding why I amthe way I am, but communicating who I am to others (andunderstanding THEM better, too). Introvert Dear is the brainchild of Jenn Granneman, ateacher, writer, introvert expert, and fellow INFJ/HSP. Sobasically, I knew I had to have her on the podcast(especially since I get asked so often what the heck these acronymseven mean). Here’s the deal, in a nutshell: Myers Briggs personalitytypes are broken down into four components – introverted vsextroverted, intuitive vs sensing, thinking vs feeling, andperceiving vs judging. A lot of people will just focus on the introvert/extrovert partof the equation, but Myers Briggs, and Jenn’s site, dissects thefine nuance between each specific combination.) There’s a big theme in this episode of the number onelesson every introvert (and HSP) needs to learn in order to thrive.Even if you’re not either, take a listen – we’ve all got a littlebit of introvert in us, and WAY more of us are HSPs than werealize, we just never talk about it. At the best, you’ll learn about yourself. At the very least,you’ll definitely learn about someone you care about. Ready?
