"HOW TO THRIVE AND WIN AS AN INTROVERT, IN THE WORLD OF EXTROVERTS!" The stereotypes on intro/extroversion have been going on for many years, yet we do not take the effort to correct any of them. Introversion, in particular, is one of the most frequently misinterpreted personality traits. Many issues originate from the lack of distinction between introversion and being shy-- the former is much more detailed as the introvert himself is just more concentrated in his own world, yet it does not mean he can not interact with others if he needs to. This book was created with high hopes of shedding light on the misconceptions that often discourage the introverts. Some of these individuals are fed up in being forced to alter their ways. People have no idea that introverts can be the most independent types of people you will ever meet. Because they choose the serenity of being on their own, they have the tendency to be more self-dependent and devoted. They are visionaries-- they take their time evaluating things and go through the details with an excellent focus and accuracy. In this book, we aim to reveal to you why we should accept and thrive as introverts! In this book, you will learn: Introduction Our Motto: "You're Okay But Only In Tiny Doses."

We all have different reasons for wanting to connect with others. It might be to market our business or sell a product. It might be to run for political office or raise funds for an organization. Or it might simply be to form new relationships with people we don't know. Whatever the reason, truly connecting with others does not come easily for most of us. It demands work and practice in several different areas, all of which are covered in this book: Making meaningful small talk, remembering names, listening well, effectively working a room, using appropriate body language, connecting with individuals when speaking to a group and following up with new contacts effectively. Jeff Johnson draws on his decades of experience in business and politics to help even the most introverted or uncomfortable master these skills and start connecting with others.
