Not everyone in our culture is an alpha person. For those of us who are introverted or highly sensitive that world is one that is foreign to us. The natural tendencies for those who are not the alpha type are quite different from the “go get what you want and take charge” perspective that defines much of our culture.
Introverts and highly sensitive people are different. Introverted people are on the quieter side. Highly sensitive people may not be as quiet. They do however share some of the same natural tendencies.
Workplaces with the overall culture of “go get what you want and take charge” are being scrutinized. The overall volatility of the workplace and life in general is demanding a review of values and mores that have been held as the only way forward until recently. Introverts and highly sensitive people are demonstrating that another way of doing business and being in the world is possible. And at this time in history those other ways are a necessity.
What other traits do you value in highly sensitive and introverted people?
All the best,
