Wie man Introvertierte behandelt

Früher nannte man sie ausschliesslich Introvertierte, heute fallen durchaus auch Computer-Geeks in diese Kategorie:

  • Respect their need for privacy.
  • Never embarrass them in public.
  • Let them observe first in new situations.
  • Give them time to think. Don’t demand instant answers.
  • Don’t interrupt them.
  • Give them advanced notice of expected changes in their lives.
  • Give them 15 minute warnings to finish whatever they are doing before calling them to dinner or moving on to the next activity.
  • Reprimand [massregeln] them privately.
  • Teach them new skills privately rather than in public.
  • Enable them to find one best friend who has similar interests and abilities: encourage this relationship even if the friend moves.
  • Do not push them to make lots of friends.
  • Respect their introversion. Don’t try to remake them into extraverts.

Investiere in das, was du schon kannst

Only problem is we’re all very bad at something, which we may or may not be aware of. It may be graphic design. Maybe finance. Or managing a group of people to get them to do what you want. What do we do then?

The simple answer is to improve. We’re so bad at this skill that if we work at it, we can improve it and it will be better. And that’s often a good idea.

The better idea is to delegate: find someone who’s a rock star at that skill you suck so badly at. But to do that, you have to trust that others an help you. Which is difficult since you’re a control freak, remember?

Vor Kurzem habe ich an einem anderen Ort über die eigenen Schwächen gelesen. Das Fazit lautete: Ein Mensch profitiert in der heutigen arbeitsteiligen Welt deutlich mehr, wenn er seine Stärken weiter ausbaut, als wenn er seine Schwächen auf’s Mittelmass zu heben versucht. Zeitverschwendung, sozusagen.
