National Introverts Week 

national Introverts week

It’s international introverts week (March 18 – 24, 2019)

I was feeling all introverted yesterday so didn’t come out and write about it yesterday! 😁

So, let’s celebrate the strengths of the introvert and tag the introverts in our lives who are making an impact in their own way.

If you are an extrovert reading this, take a moment to recognise the introverts in your lives and ask yourself whether they are bending their natural way to fit the extrovert norms – are the introvert’s needs recognised in your work place?


National Introvert’s Week is the 3rd week in March and was instigated by Mathew Pollard, author of The Introvert’s Edge.

This week is dedicated to confronting the stigma associated with introversion and to celebrate the inherent strengths and qualities that make introverts such a dynamic and successful part of our world.

Modern life seems geared to benefit the extrovert. Rewards seem to flow to those who embrace social interaction, and introverts are too often regarded as scared to speak up, trying to avoid attention.

What many people don’t realise, however, is that introverts can and do achieve amazing success – not only in the quieter realms like creative or intellectual work (J.K Rowling, Albert Einstein), but in areas traditionally thought of as extroverted territory, such as business, sales, entertainment, and many more.

The point is clear: Introverts can and do achieve incredible success; it’s a mistake to simply think of them as withdrawn, reserved, and hiding in the background. Achievement is not a matter of personality or sociability; it comes down to an introvert’s ability to discover and master the strategies to harness their inherent strengths.” states the National Day Calendar website


Use #NationalIntrovertsWeek to tag and share the discoveries you make about yourself, your personality type, and what you consider your own introvert’s strengths.

If you are an extrovert, share the amazing things the introverts in your life are achieving.
