Introverts

Introverts tend to be reflective and have close relationships.

But it can be hard to be open and let strangers into your life. Small talk doesn’t come easy, and it’s hard work to establish rapport with new people.

Being an introvert
Being an introvert has nothing to do with being shy.

All it means is that some people recharge when they are by themselves (introverts).

People love talking about themselves. The primary goal when you network is to connect with the other person on one thing that’s important to them. It doesn’t have to have anything to do with your outcome.

If you were seeking a spouse, you wouldn't approach a stranger and ask "Will you marry me?" Instead, you'd take the time to get to know the other person before moving ahead.
