We are always told to be outgoing, presentable in a job interview and workplace. But I’m gonna tell you it doesn’t matter if you feel uncomfortable schmoozing with strangers at networking events, as shy people have coveted leadership skills that normal people don’t have.
Those on the quiet side tend to be good listeners, and in someone’s eyes this could be an admirable etiquette compared to those who like to be long-winded and too talkative. This is a really necessary communication skill that most people don’t pay attention to.
But of course, being shy is not always ideal, in particular in jobs like sales or marketing. So it’s better for you to step out of your comfort zone at the right time at the right place.
