  • Calling All IntrovertsIncreasing the Introvert's impact in an Extrovert world

    1, Hello BDPA - I am Doris Shannon in ATL a former HR executive and now do ..LOVE coach in the 3 major areas of personal coaching 1) career past with outplacement , now NBMBAA since 2000 2) leadership and 3) life transition coaching programs

    2. I am certified to use the Meyers Briggs type indicator- a personality/typing instrument support all my clients. MBTI for shorthand. Introversion is the word devloped by the MBTI creators to decribe an element of our temperament.. personality

    MBTI Most widely/ researched and validated of all personality typing instruments in fact most other..- Ive asked ( DISC, Birkman profile, Strength Finders to name a few). This Webinar ABOUT INTROVERSION is based on the decades of research developing the MBTI and more recent surprising findings.

    I am perhaps like some of you - I an am a FLAT-LINE INTROVERT. My first assessment SHOWED I could not be more introverted - the graphic on my report displayed a pointer that layed d flat with the tip of pointer resting against the word introversion. psychologist who gave me feedback ASKED what difficulty I was facing in my human resource role. But like many of you when we know we are different - but not why we make career choices not necessarily based on our best job fit. Frankly I was naturally a better fit for IT jobs BACK IN THE DAY Computer Science -college minor, or EVEN a internal auditor than I was suited to be a HR professional. I told the psychologist that at one time I had transferred out of HR and became a computer programmer TRAINEE I loved the logic of programming But by that time dealing ILLOGICAL people issues was in my blood, so after 6 month when I received an offer- install a packaged HR system from a position inside the HR department User project leader for an IT project I was in heaven. ***So when you dont fit your job.. find a way of making the job fit you.

    3. Over the years with A VARIETY of jobs and opportunities for self-discovery I became a career development specialist - 1st I was just focused on my own CAREER. took and kept every self discovery assessment available. Even dreaded 360 feedback reports. 360s are the feedback ratings AND COMMENTS from your bosses, subordinates and peers. Raise your hand if you TOO have experienced 360-feedback.

    4. Ive learned that self-discovery from every possible perspective good/bad/ugly can be the key to creating success. The more you know about WHO YOU ARE. The easier it is to make career and life choices that are fulfilling. And as you learn about WHO YOU ARE- the more you understand, appreciate and relate to other people. Particularly those people who are not like you. AND YESINCREASE your impact as an introvert IN AN EXTROVERT WORLD

And you decide how accurate you feel these EARLY findings are.Pause3.READResearch says Our Temperamental Differences appear to be derived primarily from our neurochemistry OUR BRAIN CHEMISTRY. So far scientist have identified 60 different neurotransmitters in each of us . Neurotransmitters that guide messages from cell to cell, directing all of our brain functions. The names of our primary neurotransmitter may sound familiar - dopamine, serotonin, adrenalin, acetylcholine and endorphins.A brain research study published in American Journal of Psychiatry - identified that the brain has separate pathways for different neurotransmitters. Research shows, introverts:have more blood flow, over longer and deeper paths into the brain - than extroverts.pause More blood flow would indicates more internal stimulation. The path of blood flow of introverts is more complex and reaches parts of the brain connected with remembering, solving problems and planning. This seems to correlate with the introverts need to attend 1st - to their internal thoughts and feelings Extroverts blood flowed more quickly over shorter less complicated paths to the areas of the brain where visual, auditory, touch taste and smell occurs.pause

    Researchers are concluding that behavioral differences between intro and extros results from the use of these difference pathways that influence where we direct our focus - internally or externally. Also the pathway extraverts use is activated by dopamine a powerful neurotransmitters most closely aligned with movement ,attention alert states and learning. Introverts on the other hand are highly sensitive to dopamine too much dopamine and we are over- stimulated. We use an entirely different neurotransmitter- acetylcholine which stimulates a good feeling when were thinking and feeling. it affects our attention and learning especially perceptual learning. Acetylcholine t influences the ability to sustain a calm alert feeling. Continuing research into acetylcholine is strengthening the understanding of the introverts brain/ body connection an d the reasons we behave as we do.

    Im totally fascinated by this new research and will share with you re sources where you can learn more .

    CLICK FOR 2 GRAPHICSHOPEFUULY YOU CAN IDENTIFY THE POWER AND VALUE OF INTROVERSON let me4 The : Power of your Introversion is directly related to the quality of your thoughts NOT # The degree to which you can replace worries and negative self-talk - with thoughts, word and vision of u creating your goals and dreams - equals - your ability to achieve these goals and dream

    5. The: Benefits of Introversion that introverts know so well- but others dont;

    Is our enhanced ability to see and hear what being said and what not being said the perceptual hit some of you get when you take information inward. We also have opportunity for more Critical Thinking. The kind of thinking that allows you to make connections that are not obvious to others; The kind of thinking : THAT allow you to see the pros & con, The kind of thinking : THAT ALLOWS YOU TOcompare and contrast t The kind of thinking : that cannot be as easily done while youre talking. The kind of thinking : that helps in decision making.Power and value critical to both you and your employers.

    6. LISTEN Before I we move on - I want you to take the Introvert/Extrovert Crisis Test - a test reported to remove any doubt about your wiring as a introvert or extrovert Think of how you have responded to stress or crisispause think of a real life crisis or stressful experience if you can: If you shut down, detach and calmly/slowly respond you are wired introvert - if you tend to respond by moving the body immediately, taking action without thinking - you are wired as an extrovert. During most stressful events we revert to our basic wiring. BOTH can be valuable ways to respond to crisis but very different mind/body responses. WHEN I TOOK THIS this test reminded me of a stressful situation I found myself in during an early morning car trip, with my husband , flaming extrovert behind the wheel. It was 3 r 4am and we were headed fom Atlanta to St Louis for a wedding. We were in Tenn. I was in the passengers seat and I had fallen asleep I woke up to my husband holling an gravel hitting the side of the car
