can't change even if I tried wrote:
I'm 30 and am just now coming to the realization that I can never do sales, teaching, or management because dealing with people makes me miserable. I am no misanthrope or anything I just am extremely not a people person. It's clear to me that outgoing extroverts have it better in general, but Is there any advantage to this shit at all?
Plenty of advantages. People don't know you as well because you keep to yourself, but you'll be respected as someone who...
1. ...listens and learns rather than yacks all the time.
2. ...ACTUALLY works instead of NETworks.
3. ...thinks first, speaks second.
4. ...is honest rather than smooth-talking and obtuse.
The list goes on. I never trust an extrovert. They're always trying to sell you something or deceive you for their own benefit.
