Communication is complex and it is, of course, impossible for me to describe all of the dynamics and complexities of relationships or interactions in a short post.
What this post will do is describe some general positive characteristics and potential challenges when two people with preferences for Introversion interact.
I hope you can use this information as a starting point for a better understanding of your relationships with others.
Enjoy the conversation
• Quiet time and room for inner space and privacy
• Conversations with deep meaning and minimal small talk
• Calm, peaceful interactions
• Being able to recharge while together
• Neither have high needs to fill in silences
But watch out for
• Avoiding conflict
• Magnifying unresolved issues internally
• Not verbalizing important concerns (especially IF’s)
• Avoiding social events and networking opportunities
• Potential misunderstanding because thoughts and decisions may not be expressed
Of course, personality type preferences are only part of how you communicate and a discussion of one personality type preference pair doesn’t adequately describe personality type dynamics.
If you live in the USA, Introduction to Type and Communication is now available on Kindle.
