Introverted Black Girl with Extroverted Qualities

I am a full time entrepreneur, mom, wife with an introverted personality, & my husband is an extroverted Special Education Teacher. For me, this has been quite a learning experience for my husband and for myself.

He's the yin to my yang. Although we are quite different, we compliment one another very well. I have learned a great deal of communication from my husband, how to assert myself in situations where I once avoided due to the fear of conflict. I was never afraid of the actual conflict, but more so how I might respond to it. Although conventional wisdom believes you need to be an extrovert to succeed in life, my experience and recent research say otherwise. There is also a false perception that introverts don’t communicate and lead with great influence or effectiveness. Nothing could be further from the truth. (Merrick, 2016)
