  • Natural introverts might find big events — like Inman Connect San Francisco — overwhelming.
  • How do you know if you’re an introvert, and how can you make the most of events like Connect?
  • Tim Harris discusses how to overcome solitary tendencies and achieve success.

Going to Inman Connect San Francisco this year? Feeling a little trepidation about the hustle, bustle and crowds?

If you find yourself hiding away for a few minutes to refresh yourself during the conference, you may be a natural introvert! In today’s show, we’re going to help you identify whether or not you truly are an introvert, and we’ll be discussing how introverted people can overcome their solitary tendencies to achieve true real estate success.

There’s a myth going around that you need to be an outgoing, gregarious “people person” in order to be successful in real estate — but we’re here to tell you that it just ain’t so!

If you’re naturally a little shy, or maybe even a full-blown wallflower, you can still be just as successful in real estate as more outgoing agents are — it just takes a bit more work and some attention to detail to get there.

Would it surprise you to know that all of these famous and successful people are introverts?

  • Emma Watson
  • Eleanor Roosevelt
  • Bill Gates
  • Christina Aguilera
  • Warren Buffett
  • Michael Jordan
  • Albert Einstein
  • Gwyneth Paltrow
  • Harrison Ford
  • David Letterman

All of these people were or are introverts. In fact, introverts can be very powerful speakers, salespeople, entertainers, entrepreneurs and great leaders. Watch Susan Cain’s TED Talk on introverts here.
