See Extroverts Learning vs. Ego | #PeopleSkills

Do you see extroverts learning as they talk? Many introverts see the extroverts’ high energy and verbal communication as egomania. Not always true. Most extroverts are learning the information they need.

Instead of seeing extroverts blaring out their thoughts as this image suggests:

Extroverts Learning: Image is megaphone.

See extroverts learning through what they hear from you as this image suggests:

Extroverts Learning: Image is different megaphone.

What Are Extroverts Learning Through Communication?

  • Who you are

  • How you think

  • How you treat people

  • The common ground you all share

  • What knowledge you have that they need

  • What information you need from them

  • How to proceed on goals toward solutions

While people who identify themselves as introverts learn through more silent observation, extroverts need verbal interaction to learn. Neither style is wrong. They are just different styles. So if extroverts’ verbal communication bothers you, see the reasons behind the behavior. See extroverts learning rather than domineering or egocentric. Replace the absurd debates about which style is right and which is wrong — extroversion or introversion — with understanding of each. (In a future post, I will explore introverts’ preferred style!)

    Yes! With you! It’s time to end the debate over which style is more effective and recognize that it’s about understanding each style and the strengths and challenges they bring. Thanks for shining a light on extroverts not being egomaniacs who can’t be quiet and helping spread the word about how their default style is also their strength. Introverts and extroverts need awareness of each other’s preferred style and communication to foster appreciation and let go of judgment.

    Will share!

      Thanks Alli. There are assumptions all the way around. My next post will be about introverts and how better to adapt to them.
