I always considered myself an introvert without knowing what it ACTUALLY means.
I just know that I am not loud, I hate being in the center of attention and I avoid large groups.
“But still you are choosing a career as an Instructor?”, a colleague asked me.
Funnily enough, I do.
I am definitely up for making a training more fun and interactive.
Especially if it takes a few days, I want to maintain a closer relationship with the students.
But essentially, what they come for is to hear facts.
And facts are exactly my comfort zone.
I asked that colleague (who is definitely an introvert) how she felt about sitting in the canteen during lunch.
“The other day someone brought a box of chocolates”, she tells, “and honestly, not only during lunch, but the entire day they talked about the different types of chocolates. It was such a waste of time.”
I laughed when she rolled her eyes. I am with her.
Today, after some time, I somehow dragged myself to the canteen.
I think they simply continued where they left of those few months back.
Always the same, boring topics.
Just now I asked Jasper if he feels more comfortable in a group of people or one or two more.
Surprisingly he answered with “Definitely a larger group”.
“When there are more people, there is less opportunity to pay attention to me”, he explained, “so I can eat my steak in peace and quiet”.
He is a wise human 😉
Do you prefer to be in a large group?
What are your favorite topics to talk about during lunch?
