Quiet the Extrovert

To get somebody’s attention, whisper. If that’s true why does society seem to value the extrovert? Susan Cain wrote the book Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can’t Stop Talking. Read her summary in the September October Realtor Magazine. The link above should take you there. I read this book a few years ago and gave my copy to Gina. She’s a model of all that is great about introversion. Enough said. I could probably end this right here, but while I am more of an introvert, I have some extrovert tendencies so of course I have more to say.

Susan Cain knows introversion “is not seen as a prized trait in our culture…”. Too bad for our culture. Just try getting anything done with nothing but extroverts all around. Can you think of one example where introverts saved the back side of extroverts? Apollo 13 Mission Flight Control comes to my mind.

Lots of praise is given to the extrovert. She’s a leader. He’s a mover and shaker. She participates in class discussion. I say so what. You may appreciate Quiet for insight to help you dialogue with clients, or to lessen the stigma for yourself or someone in your family.  When failure is not an option, the introvert personality is the prized possession.

I believe the difference between an accepted or rejected real estate offer to purchase is the drafter's ability to customize the Offer to reflect the Buyer's commitment. Ready, willing, capable, committed, sincere people can out negotiate higher priced offers by moving away from standardized forms. Ask me how.
