"Hello Stephen, Great points. I like that word, "introvertness". The last book discussion we did was great, it would be great if we continued. I've never participated in a Google Hangout before, but I'm interested. - Leslie"

"You make a great point, Rodney. Susan Cain's book would be a good one to reread. It's interesting how many leaders & historical figures were actually introverts, even though it may not have been obvious."

"OKAY, so has anybody else read Susan Cain's "Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World that Can't Stop Talking"?  That book is like the Introvert's affirmation bible or something!  What do you guys think of it?"

Looking for a decent mic

I'm just starting to dip my toe into video. I have my camera and a mini-mixer/recorder. The first projects I'm doing are documentary type. I will be using the mic(s) to interview one to two people at a time. Would I be better off to get a two lavalier setup or just use a quality shotgun? I want to get both, but to start, I just need one. It's really the only thing holding me back from starting. I've got a couple hundred dollars saved and just started delivering pizzas again to fund my…See More

Josh, you asked me about working with extroverts vs introverts as their sales manager. Neither is easier, just different.  With an introvert I may be more subtle, because they will be more likely to self-evaluate and self-correct. With extroverts, more direct instruction is used.  

Extroverts may not realize they come on too strong for some customers, and introverts may need more work with rapport-building. Each have their own challenges. I probably see it that way because I value both types instead of seeing one as deficient.

I will say that I'm a more effective manager when I am introspective. It takes well-planned conversations to bring constructive correction.

Thanks Josh for the welcome!  I hope as time goes by, more introverts will join us so that we can create a community where we embrace and support who we all are.

Josh,

 Thanks for the welcome. I am hoping tho learn somethings about me not only in the Embracing Introvertedness group but other groups I have recently joined at 48 days and Yes I actually have read through a Mackie Mixer board intructions/owners manual. That is how I actually started learning about sound and audio 6 years ago. Yes they bring it to a level you can actually understand.

Great suggestions. I listened to Michael Hyatt's podcast. A lot of good stuff there. So much that I'm going to listen again and take notes this time. I added my Twitter feed and am trying to post more. I've added a feature I call "Free Sci-Fi Friday" where I post old, classic Science Fiction movies and TV shows (that are in the Public Domain) that can be watched right on the blog.

As for the welcome video...I had actually recorded another, more condensed version a few months back. Unfortunately, before I could upload it and switch it out with the current one, my laptop's hard drive crashed. So now I need to record another one. One of those things that I don't particularly enjoy doing. :-(

The time I can spend on the blog is limited. I'm considering trying to get some others to guest post. That will help me keep it fresh as well as get other perspectives on the world of Science Fiction [not to mention I lean heavily toward Star Trek in the majority of my posts. :-)].

Thanks for the ideas. Let me know if you have any more. I'm really hoping to get my readership up. Maybe you could recommend The Sci-Fi Dude.

Ah gotcha...My field is librarianship. I graduated in the fall of 2011 and have yet to find a full time job in the field (many of my peers are facing similar circumstances).

Hello Josh!

I have not read through Susan Cain's Quiet book yet (I am in the middle of several books that I haven't yet gotten to finishing), but I'm already finding it affirmative and helpful. Which "field" do you mean?

Thank you so much. Over the past couple of years I have been on a journey of self awareness. I just recently took the DISC profile and quite frankly was amazed at the accuracy of it. I am currently studying the report and trying to learn more about myself and how I interact with others. I am sure it will be a huge help to understand what makes me tick.

Thanks Josh. I'm still working on the whole discovering my passion thing. It seems like there are a lot of things I like but sometimes I feel disconnected from those.

I was praying about it the other day and I remember that I used to be able to dream. Just trying to remember how. Thanks for asking.

Josh,

You can definitely count me with you as one of the few that liked (really, really liked)  Enterprise and Captain Archer. They are both my 2nd favorite Trek series and captain! It was particularly painful for me when Enterprise was axed! After Picard, Archer, and Kirk, Janeway is my next choice. Loved Voyager. Just finished re-watching the entire series start to finish thanks to Netflix. Now I'm working back through Enterprise. I've always considered DS9 and Sisko the weakest of the series' and captains (although I always enjoyed the confrontations between that Ferengi Quark and Constable Odo).

Warehouse 13 is a terrific show. I'm also fond of Torchwood.

If you have any suggestions for making my blog better, I'd love to hear them.

Hey Josh,

Thanks for the welcome and for starting the group. To be honest, I've put the novels on hold for awhile and am concentrating on short stories, as well as some non-fiction (check out my blog if you'd like). I have completed a few stories but nothing published yet. I'm actually thinking of publishing a collection of stories on Amazon. My favorite captain? Jean-Luc Picard. Who's yours?

Oh, I also really, really love classic Sci-Fi books, short stories, and movies.

I know what you mean about the border. I always dread stripping wallpaper, especially if the wall wasn't prepped correctly before it was put on. There's a 5-step process I use. Here's the quick version:

1) Use perforating tool on the border (course sandpaper sometimes works...and it's cheaper)

2) Mix warm water and wallpaper stripper (fabric softener might work, too) in a sprayer.

3) Saturate the border

4) Let it sit for 20-30 minutes

5) Peel it off

Be sure to wash off any left over paste. If you don't, your paint might just slide right down the wall. 

Let me know how the painting project goes and if you need any more tips, just let me know.

I'm looking forward to interacting in the group and seeing it grow. I know there are tons and tons of introverts out there. I think they're just too shy to join the group...
