It's World Introvert Day!
World Introvert Day has been celebrated on Jan. 2nd since 2011!
Now, I know you're thinking, "How can you be an introvert; you're a radio personality?" Mostly, I feel like an introvert, that's pretending to be an extrovert. I'm having an identity crisis. It's fine.
Allow me to explain further: it depends on the situation. Some days I feel comfortable doing what I do, other days I don't. I still get nervous sometimes.
It's a myth that introverts can't be public speakers. A lot of us have high profile jobs. As an introvert, it comes with the territory to be misunderstood.
Let's discuss some other myths about being an introvert:
1. Introverts hate talking.
WRONG. We just don't talk unless we have something to say. We HATE small talk. Find a topic we're interested in, and we'll talk for days, years, centuries.
P.S. --and sometimes it's not even that we hate small talk, we just generally suck at it.
