AN UNDIAGNOSED INTROVERT!!!!!

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with RICOASTALLIVING.COM

 Today I happened onto Jennifer Allans' post about Celebrating the Introvert within that was announcing her new group at Active Rain. 

I had seen the title in my meanderings in the past few days here at AR, but it wasn't one I thought would be something I was interested in. It wasn't until I noticed the post as I was going through the Real Estate Rookie Group (as I try to do once a week) and decided to check it out to make sure it was on topic to the group.

The connection I felt was incredible! This was me, finally, a complete description. Yes I am a possible type E, but not in the realm of outgoingness! (Is that a word?) I immediately joined the group and there, in the group, was yet another and more involved description of myself. Caring for your Introvert!

I have my own way of selling. My customers like me because I do not pressure them in any way. I am there for them, do all the back end work, make sure everything is smooth and try to advise, but ultimately, I feel it is their decision and I let them know that. So being an Introvert is not the end of the world. I love what I do and am happy in my chosen field.

I originally was going to do a blog to announce that I just became a Broker and am now a Broker Associate at Storm Realty, but hey, finding out who I was, or rather finding out that I am not abnormal, was much more exciting.

Thankyou Jennifer Allan for posting about this, you made my day!

We are all normal in an abnormal sort of way. No one is perfect and everyone has their strengths and weaknesses.....knowing them is the first step to controlling them.

Karen... this sounds like a great find, for yourself that is. I think I am more like you also.. outgoing, but try not to be pushy towards my clients. Overall, I think I am so many... lol  Come to think about it.

In any case, thanks for sharing this with us.  And oh yea, congrats on the other, becoming a broker.

Karen,

I visited and was reading your post earlier and started writing (way past a comment :-)) and had to leave to blog about how I've learned to really appreciate those special introverts in my life- I for one celebrate you all!  Glad you're here - you add so much to our community. Have a great day!

Gena,

Thankyou, I "am" finding myself, guess its never too late:)

Desiree,

I always envied extroverts. Now I think I am happy to be myself:)

David,

Actually it was harder than I expected it to be! I haven't been in the business that long, but  I can now quote the Law!

Ron,

Thankyou. I think we are all made up of different components, some more strongly than others. This just happened to hit me strongly when I read it.

Christy,

I like that, Or is it we are all abnormal in a normal sort of way?

Larry,

Maybe you're Normal?  

Jeff,

Thankyou! I can honestly say I have earned it!  I think you are much more outgoing than I am:) 

Dan,

No kidding, It's pretty bad when we can't even take time to read anymore. I haven't had time to go read the other one, but I will.

Cyndee,

It seems to happen whenever you visit one of my posts:) Good thing I don't post very much. Thankyou for the compliments.

George,

Thankyou, and after reading the article, I can now agree! Thats the great part of all this.

Donna,

Glad you found the group. Jennifer, as you will see, after you read all the posts, has a book called "Selling with Soul" which, although geared torwards new agents, is also for more seasoned agents who are Introverts.

I agree, the site is pure genius. When the groups feature started, it was kind of a mess, but now they are evolving into small pockets of expertise and types of people. We can all find our niche:)
