Fake being an extrovert when you need to
1. Evaluate whether the situation actually needs you to fake being an extrovert
Does it further your goals in an effective manner? Is it for someone who means a lot to you, or for something you truly believe in? Will it bring you benefits? Remember, you will be trading time and energy for this.
2. Practise your self-monitoring skills
When you’re having a conversation with someone, pay attention to how they indicate their feelings. First, you need to practise recognizing when they are bored, or interested, etc. Then, try to adjust your conversation accordingly and smoothly. People will be much happier to have conversations with you as you improve your skills - you can use this to evaluate your progress.
3. Create a “restorative niche” for yourself
This could be a part of the house that is just for yourself, or even a part of your room that is just for you to relax in. Fill this niche with the things you love and what you use to de-stress. Use this niche regularly in order to prevent burning out!
4. Identify alternative strategies if you have to be away from the house for long periods
For example, you could carry a book with you to read on the morning commute or during your lunch break.
