Strong intuition is the foundation for leadership and allows for better decision making. The capacity to feel for others ups our emotional intelligence quotient and engenders self- awareness in both us and in others.
Sensitivity is not exclusive of extroverts. Sensitivity shows up across the personality spectrum but in my experience, introverts tend to have a larger share of it since our nature is to be naturally reflective. Elaine Aron is the author of The Highly Sensitive Person and defines such a person as normal, with an innate sensitivity trait that is often misunderstood in some cultures, primarily Western culture. Highly Sensitive People or HSPs are often made to feel like something is wrong with them, that they are somehow deficient if they take too long to make a decision or hang back before jumping into a conversation. Sounds like Introversion doesn't it?
Jennifer Kahnweiler, author of The Introverted Leader: Building on Your Quiet Strength wrote an article in Forbes about why introverts can make the best leaders. She said:
"Learning by listening, not talking, is a trait that introverts consistently demonstrate. They also use their calm, quiet demeanors to be heard amid all the organizational noise and chatter. (One thoughtful, reasoned comment in a meeting can move a group forward by leaps and bounds.) In fact, the most powerful person in the room is often the most quiet. "
I see you. I'm cheering you on.
