HOW TO CARE FOR INTROVERTS

Sauce: Floating around Teh Internerds
  • 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 advance 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 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 friendship even if the friend moves.
  • Don't push them to make lots of friends.
  • Respect their introversion. Don't try to make them into extroverts.
