Tips to working with Introverts

1. Keep distancing
Keep distancing both physically and mentally, do not get too close while talking to Introverts. Intimacy is counted for Introverts so keep in mind that you should not ask Introverts about their personal issue before you become their close friend.

2. Slow down your pace
Introverts need to reflect themselves before speak out so Extravert need to slow down their pace which makes Introverts feel more comfortable and trust.

3. Wait for their response
Whenever you are going to ask Introvert a question, what Extraverts should do is to leave them think about their response for a while , don’t repeat that question as it will interrupt their thought process.
