My Biggest Strength

Time once again for the 52-week blogging challenge. Today's prompt is "Your biggest strength."

I had to think about this for a while. And I finally decided what my biggest strength is.

I'm a very, very shy person. My Myers-Briggs personality type is INTJ. The "I" stands for "introvert." I would rather be alone with my thoughts than at a party where I have to interact with people. All you introverts know what I mean.

But despite that, I am a pretty good public speaker. I can speak in front of a group of people without a problem, if I'm sure about my subject. Part of that is because of my work in Toastmasters. But even before Toastmasters I was fairly good at public speaking. When I worked in the corporate world, I would gladly give presentations all the time.

So I think my greatest strength is overcoming my inherent shyness to be a good public speaker.

Or it might be that I'm capable of doing freelance writing work because that means calling people I don't know and asking them for interviews. It's very hard for me to do that. But I do it because I enjoy the freelance work so much.

What is your greatest strength. Comment below!
