If they didn’t invite you, don’t just show up thinking you are going out of your “comfort zone“. Situations like these can cause an introvert terrible anxiety–imagine showing up uninvited to a private party then the host turning you back in front of a crowd of people. This could set you back for years and you have always had that memory of public humiliation.
Practice in the Mirror
Ever had a big speech or presentation and practiced in the mirror? This is the same principle! All you have to do is look at yourself in the mirror as you say the things you plan to say at the event. This is great practice to make you more fluent in your speech and it helps you to see what you look like while saying it. This method has helped me so many times especially when there are specific influential people I want to speak with and I don’t want to have that weird dead silence during mid-conversation.
Being an introvert is not as bad as you think it is –as it relates to making conversation at events, it takes a great deal of practice to make it perfect. We hope this guide will help you to be more confident.
