Are You Ready for the Benefits of Unplugging?

We’re all so tied up daily with our technology, our screens. There are smartphone texts and social media, computer, tablet, and television.

Do we think of life without them? As an introvert over dependence on these technology tools can get in the way of my preference for a quiet mind.

How Do You Manage Your Introvert Kryptonite?

In 2013 one of my articles appeared at Geek’s Guide to People Skills. Let’s get down to business with it!

Mark Dykeman, an online blogger who no longer maintains his Mighty Introvert Blog, has an appropriate metaphor for what happens to the introvert in groups or parties after a while. He says that too much of other people is like kryptonite for introverts: the Kryptonite fictional element is from the Superman tale. In the tale, kryptonite is created from the remains of Superman’s native planet of Krypton, and has detrimental effects on Superman and other Kryptonians.

Today kryptonite can be a synonym for Achilles’ heel, the one weakness for someone. For introverts one kind of Kryptonite is not being much for groups or parties that go on and on.[Continue Reading…]
