    Episode #24: How to Navigate Romantic Relationships as an HSP

    Episode #24: How to Navigate Romantic Relationships as an HSP

    Are you an introvert who’s also a highly sensitive person? There’s a good chance you are, because 70 percent of HSPs are also introverts. If you’re a highly sensitive introvert, you know how challenging that can be, and most likely, one of your biggest challenges is love and relationships.

    In today’s episode, we talk about the challenges of being an HSP in a romantic relationship with a non-HSP. We’ll hear from a couple who’s doing just that — Jenn and her partner Andre, founders of Highly Sensitive Refuge, a new community just for HSPs. Also, stay tuned, because we’ve got a big announcement about this podcast later in the show.

    Episode #23: How to Nail the Job Interview as an Introvert

    An interview can feel like small talk on steroids for introverts. Only the stakes are raised as you need to put your best foot forward because a job you want is on the line. The thought is enough to give you sweaty palms and a queasy stomach. What’s an introvert to do?  
    Today, we’re talking with Amanda Glover about how to nail the job interview.  
    As a journalist at heart, Amanda combines her love for writing and business to help introverts create compelling resumes and interview stories. As an introvert who discovered personal acceptance late in life, she founded Rising Introverts to help introverts nail the job interview and generate greater confidence in their everyday lives.

    Episode #22: How to Cope with Anxiety as an Introvert

    Episode #22: How to Cope with Anxiety as an Introvert

    When many people hear the word introvert, they picture a nail-biter, cowering in his or her bedroom, refusing to interact with the rest of the world. Frankly, this definition of introvert misses the mark by a long shot. But it is true that introverts sometimes feel nervous around certain people and for a variety of other reasons. While introvert and anxiety don’t necessarily go together, when they do, it’s helpful to know why and to have some strategies for coping with the challenges that come your way.

    Episode #20: The Benefits of Being an Introvert

    Episode #20: The Benefits of Being an Introvert

    Modern society celebrates the strengths and virtues of extroversion. It’s no surprise: Extroverts are masters of tooting their own horn. While the outward-focus extroverts bring to life is helpful at many times and in many ways, the one-sided praise only tells half the story. Too many people still need to discover the wonderful benefits of introversion. A quiet, inward focus is just as important and valuable as its counterpart.  
    On today’s show, we’ll try to level the playing field and shed more light on why introversion is just as valuable and advantageous as extroversion. Tune in to learn a few significant benefits of being an introvert!

    Episode #19: Yes, Even Introverts Need Friends

    Episode #19: Yes, Even Introverts Need Friends

    Introverts need good friends and strong relationships, just like extroverts do, but they go about socializing a little differently. Usually they require just a few deep connections - instead of a rolodex of acquaintances - and it doesn’t take as much to fill their social quota. 
    For introverts to be at their best, they need authentic, close relationships. So on today’s show, we’ll be exploring ways to take care of our friendships as introverts. And joining us to lend her expertise is author SophIa Dembling.  
    SophIa Dembling is a writer and editor in Dallas, Texas. She is author of The Introvert’s Way: Living a Quiet Life in a Noisy World and Introverts in Love: The Quiet Way to Happily Ever After. SophIa, who started her writing career at The Dallas Morning News, has had articles and essays published in more magazines, newspapers, anthologies and websites than she can list.

HSP/INFJ feeling alone no more.

Listening to this podcast has made me feel so very understood. I’ve been told my whole life [that my superpowers as an HSP/INFJ] make me “too sensitive,” this podcast feels as though I’m listening to friends who truly understand. Trying to spontaneously provide a well-stated reply in overwhelming social settings has been difficult my whole life. The exhaustion from the Se...ugh. Love you guys! I will miss this podcast. I will continue learning (and researching) thank you!!

Thank you!

A really great introduction to someone just realizing they are an introvert, and potentially a HSP! Thank you for your work, and I will be utilizing all of the books and blogs discussed on here 🥰

Kevin Darant ,

...NOW I get it!!!! Thank you!

I just listened to episode #23 and found out that introverts rely more on long-term memory and extroverts rely more on short-term memory!!! Such a revelation! This episode was great and I love the way Jenn and her co-host (Beau?) have such an easy, comfortable style of interviewing and are able to put these golden nuggets of info into relatable context. So glad I found this podcast!!!
