Confidence for Introverts (Not Another Patronizing and Simplistic Guide)

Clinically Reviewed by Steven Melendy, PsyD. on February 25, 2019

Confidence is normally described as a belief in yourself and your abilities. I don't like this definition because it feels too static. In my mind, self-confidence is not a single belief or idea but a process; it's how you function despite all the challenges you face and the critics who will make you question yourself.

She might be sitting near the back of the room, near the edges. Not all the way back, because that would increase the likelihood of being called upon.

How do you look at life? According to the brilliant Swiss-American physicist Albert Einstein, our choice of how to live life is simple. “There are only two ways to live your life”, he reportedly said. “One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.”

INTP Thinking About Freelancing? Consider This Before You Jump

There’s no ideal way to work – just an ideal attitude to adapting.

The gig economy has led to more and more of us working short-term jobs, often remotely and/or with teams of strangers. Some choose to work this way, but for many, it is becoming a necessity.
