Understanding people and your environment

Being a good listener is a very important skill and as an introvert, you can develop an outstanding ability to pay attention to what people are saying.
If you’re an introvert, you’re much more sensible to any stimuli from the environment. Therefore make sure that you turn off your phone and all other possible distractions from the environment when you’re talking to someone.
