If you’re an introvert like me, the answer is probably yes. Introverts tend to think before we speak…if we speak at all.
I have to be honest, there are so many things that get in the way of introverts speaking our mind and our heart, especially in scenarios like...
* Meet and greet events where you are bombarded with small talk
* Conversations with coworkers outside of the work setting
* Times when you need to stand up for yourself and speak your truth
* Those awkward first sentences with someone you like
The Most Annoying Advice For Introverts
People give introverts vague advice like “open up” and “be yourself”. They have no idea how painfully difficult this can be for you.
You might feel guarded and tongue-tied in conversation. As much as you desperately want to open up and let your fun, playful, witty side show, you feel stuck.
Many introverts get stuck at meet and greet. They don’t know how to effortlessly use icebreakers to spark interesting conversations. Or the OAR Method to prevent awkward silences and keep the conversation moving.
When You Know You Should Speak Up, But Don’t Know How
When you finally do develop a bond with someone, you find it hard to have those difficult conversations.
After all, it can be really tough for introverts to speak up when…
* your boundaries are crossed
* your needs aren’t being met
* you feel belittled or disrespected
* your buttons have been pushed
Even having those oh-so-important initial conversations about your need for space and time to recharge can often seem impossible for introverts.
Too Serious In Conversation?
Having light and playful conversations can seem even more impossible than having serious talks. Why?
Well there are lots of possible reasons.
Being witty and funny in conversation might go against the limitations others have put on you as an introvert. They labelled you as the quiet, reserved wallflower and you believed them.
You might also feel so inhibited in conversations with new people that you seem way more serious and ‘in your head’ than you actually are.
It’s sad because all of the above — everything from knowing exactly how to spark fun conversations with anyone, to expressing your needs and boundaries, to being funny and playful in conversation —are SKILLS that can be learned and mastered.
But there is a really frustrating reason why too many introverts get stuck.
The Sneaky Reason You Get Stuck
Introverts have different needs and challenges than extroverts. Your brain is literally wired differently.
And yet, most of the social skills ‘experts’ out there make one-size-fits all advice that doesn’t address your unique communication challenges.
That’s why Introvert Conversation Genius is an instant game changer for introverts.

"The OAR method helped me tremendously when I went to visit a friend and her family. I watched your video the day before I left, and I was surprised how it worked so quickly. I wasn’t perfect but I noticed that I was reacting positively towards people’s conversations even if they were talking negatively." —Christina, U.S.A
"My brain feels more relaxed, and I feel more at ease in conversation. And one celebration I have to share with you is my consultant said that I have improved comparing to when we first and second met. I have a warm greeting, I speak louder, and express more. I think this course has inspired and helped me.” - Jenny L., Macau
"The conversation ignitors were put into practice at a recent Labor Day Barbecue. While I do like meeting new people, the whole experience of socializing can be exhausting to say the least. At this barbecue, I found myself much more present and grounded. I was able to interact with those present without becoming overwhelmed, overloaded. I had some great conversations that night, was able to expand upon initial introductions, using what the other person stated and go from there." - A. Lavelle, U.S.A
"I took the advice from it and the best thing now is that I am now the most popular person at work and I can connect with people outside of work, it is like I can meet any new person and make them feel comfortable and interested in me." - Keith H., U.S.A

Brisbane, Australia
