Introverts are people who primarily look inward, paying close attention to their thoughts and emotions. It’s not that they are incapable of paying attention to what is going on around them, it’s just that their inner world is much more stimulating and rewarding to them.
The title extrovert many times is equated with being a rock star public speaker. I've found this isn't necessarily true. Just because someone feels at ease in front of others doesn't automatically mean they'll be a phenomenal orator. In fact, many of the greatest speakers of all time were introverts and managed to find their speaking niche. Ghandi, Winston Churchill, President Barack Obama, Eleanor Roosevelt, and Abraham Lincoln to name a few.
Being an introvert can be an asset in public speaking rather than a deficit! Let’s stop looking at introversion as something a speaker has to 'get over'. Instead we should identify why introverts are amazing public speakers.
