• MBTI – 16 Types of MOMS
TELL your INTROVERT CHILD their special ways are normal:
You know yourself
Because you like to spend time alone & enjoy your own thoughts, you know a lot about yourself, & how different things can make you feel. Figuring out who you are & what matters to you is a great way to use all you traits to help you grow & develop your talents
You have amazing ideas
Taking the time to be quiet & listen to your inner voice, you end up with lots of interesting ideas that can eventually turn into great discoveries, products & careers. Like Bill Gates, J.K.Rowling, Emma Watson, Rosa Parks, Christina Aguilera…. Keep listening to yourself, and keep thinking!
You’re careful & discriminating
Sometimes it pays off to take risks, but you know it;s smart to ‘looking before you leap’ into something. In fact, because information takes a longer journey through an introvert’s brain – than Es – it’s normal for you to hang back a little & study new situations before deciding to participate, which gives you the chance to make better choices
You like to think about all kinds of things, which includes noticing & investigating what’s going on around you. Introverts think everything through thoroughly, creating pictures in their mind, which helps them vividly remember events & details. This makes you awesome at recalling your own stories & other people’s as well
Chances are, even if they don’t always show it, the adults in your life know you’re dependable, which gives them confidence in you. They value & depend on your being trustworthy. Being organized makes it easier to keeping your promises & plans, especially since you think carefully about your actions before you do something
You’re a great reader & writer
It natural for Introverts (Is) to love reading as part of their quiet, alone time. And the more you read, the better you can write. Reading gives you inspiration for ideas & a better use of language, which you can show off in your imaginative & well-thought-out writing.
Being forced to write fast or in a short time is not your thing – you like to have space to think about the plot, the characters, locations & problems in the story you have to iron out. Isaac Asimov, author of I, Robot once said, “Writing to me is simply thinking through my fingers.”
You’re a talented problem solver
You have larger, thicker gray matter in your prefrontal cortex than your extroverted peers – that command center in your brain responsible for complex problem solving, information processing & decision-making. Your brain is literally built to ponder. So when facing a challenge, you thrive on brain-power to work out solutions.
You make a great leader
This one may surprise you – you have wonderful leadership qualities which you can develop as you mature. Introverts project calmness in times of crises, think before they speak, & ask great questions – all the marks of an effective leader & doer
Introverts are rarely bullies, because they’d rather figuring out how to explain their point of view than picking a fight. Because you have a calming effect on others, you can usually solve conflicts by talking it out, rather than getting physical. That doesn’t mean you don’t get excited sometimes, but you don’t get crazy, especially in tough situations
You are a terrific listener, & want to hear everyone’s point of view before deciding what you think about a situation. People love to have a friend who’ll will carefully evaluate what they’re saying & give fair opinions. You’re great at paying attention with your whole brain, not just the ears
You have deep friendships
You may feel overwhelmed or tired at a big, noisy party, but you love spending time with very close friends. Because you care deeply, are loyal, & have great ideas, you making close, even lifelong friends. This one of the great rewards of introversion. (Song...)
