Do You Want To Talk About It?
Think about the last time you had a difficult decision to make. Did you reach out to a trusted friend to discuss your options? Was it important to brainstorm out loud? Or did you want to have time alone to process things internally? Did you want quiet time to think?
Extraverts (E) like to problem solve by talking and discussing. Introverts (I) tend to find solutions by thinking and having alone time in their head. It is important to know your style so you know what you need when you are frustrated.
Do you need to talk? Or do you need to think? What about your co-workers or family members? Do you offer up yourself as a sounding board or do you graciously allow them space to process?
This is a critical component of effective relationships. Understand what you need and understand those around you in order to be your best self.
