10 Things Extroverts Who Have Dated Introverts Know To Be True

10 Things Extroverts Who Have Dated Introverts Know To Be True

Are you an extrovert who has dated an introvert? Introverts are quiet, grounded and calm, whereas extroverts are outgoing – and this combination makes the two types extremely compatible. For instance, extroverts are happy to challenge their partners whereas introverts often help their partners to become more reflective.

Here are 10 things all extroverts who have dated introverts know to be true.

1. They Convince You to Make Good Decisions

If you can’t decide whether to go out or stay in, your introvert partner will probably convince you to stay in. And that’s often wise, considering you have work tomorrow and your bank balance is pretty low. Now, you have a cozy night in with your partner – and it’s even better than the night out would have been.

2. Introverts Give the Best Advice

Introverts are very observant, and they normally put a lot of thought into what they are going to say before they say it. This means they give the best advice, especially to their partners.

3. When They Open Up, It Is Always Important

Introverts rarely lead the conversation, so when they do you know how important it must be. When they choose to open up to you, you try to be as helpful and attentive as you possibly can.

4. The Extrovert Gets to Do Most Of The Talking

You love to talk and share your feelings and opinions with others, and your partner is very happy to let you express yourself. It is the perfect combination – someone who loves to talk and someone who likes to listen.

5. Affection From an Introvert Is Extra-Special

Unlike extroverts who love to show affection, introverts are much more selective. When they express their love to you, you feel honored and grateful; there aren’t many people who love you as sincerely as an introvert. On the flip side, they love and appreciate how openly affectionate you are.

6. You’re Both Happy to Meet Each Other’s Friends

You love getting the opportunity to meet new people and make new friends, whereas your partner is happy to support you when you hang out with your own friends. It also helps that you both want make your partner happy by getting along with their friends.

7. They Are Happy for You to Be The Center Of Attention

You love to be the center of attention, and your partner is very happy for you to take the lead in social situations. It gives you a chance to flourish, rather than being subdued, and it often helps your partner to come out of their shell and let loose for a while.

In the past, you’ve made trouble for yourself by speaking without thinking. Dating an introvert taught you to stop and think before you speak – which has been a lifesaver for you. Now you remember to take your time.

If you have had a bad day, the only way for you to calm down is to rant and vent. You need to get your point across to someone, and your partner is more than happy to patiently listen to you.

How to Motivate People Around You and Inspire Them

How to Motivate People Around You and Inspire Them

If I was a super hero I’d want my super power to be the ability to motivate everyone around me. Think of how many problems you could solve just by being able to motivate people towards their goals. You wouldn’t be frustrated by lazy co-workers. You wouldn’t be mad at your partner for wasting the weekend in front of the TV. Also, the more people around you are motivated toward their dreams, the more you can capitalize off their successes.

Being able to motivate people is key to your success at work, at home, and in the future because no one can achieve anything alone. We all need the help of others.

So, how to motivate people? Here are 7 ways to motivate others even you can do.

1. Listen

Most people start out trying to motivate someone by giving them a lengthy speech, but this rarely works because motivation has to start inside others. The best way to motivate others is to start by listening to what they want to do. Find out what the person’s goals and dreams are. If it’s something you want to encourage, then continue through these steps.

2. Ask Open-Ended Questions

Open-ended questions are the best way to figure out what someone’s dreams are. If you can’t think of anything to ask, start with, “What have you always wanted to do?”

“Why do you want to do that?”

“What makes you so excited about it?”

“How long has that been your dream?”

You need this information the help you with the following steps.

3. Encourage

This is the most important step, because starting a dream is scary. People are so scared they will fail or look stupid, many never try to reach their goals, so this is where you come in. You must encourage them. Say things like, “I think you will be great at that.” Better yet, say, “I think your skills in X will help you succeed.” For example if you have a friend who wants to own a pet store, say, “You are so great with animals, I think you will be excellent at running a pet store.”

4. Ask About What the First Step Will Be

After you’ve encouraged them, find how they will start. If they don’t know, you can make suggestions, but it’s better to let the person figure out the first step themselves so they can be committed to the process.

5. Dream

This is the most fun step, because you can dream about success. Say things like, “Wouldn’t it be cool if your business took off, and you didn’t have to work at that job you hate?” By allowing others to dream, you solidify the motivation in place and connect their dreams to a future reality.

6. Ask How You Can Help

Most of the time, others won’t need anything from you, but it’s always good to offer. Just letting the person know you’re there will help motivate them to start. And, who knows, maybe your skills can help.

7. Follow Up

Periodically, over the course of the next year, ask them how their goal is going. This way you can find out what progress has been made. You may need to do the seven steps again, or they may need motivation in another area of their life.

Final Thoughts

By following these seven steps, you’ll be able to encourage the people around you to achieve their dreams and goals. In return, you’ll be more passionate about getting to your goals, you’ll be surrounded by successful people, and others will want to help you reach your dreams …

Oh, and you’ll become a motivational super hero. Time to get a cape!
