The Most Effective Tool for Your Social Success

– by Wes Colton, Introvert Unbound

MBTI-headsWe’re all about personal growth here at Introvert Unbound. Which is why I’ve become a Certified Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® (MBTI) Practitioner to better help our coaching clients achieve their social goals! Here’s what that means…

If you’re reading this, you probably have at least a vague idea of the difference between introversion vs. extroversion, the two opposite ways people direct and receive energy. While “extroverts” recharge from the outer world of people, objects, and activities, “introverts” do so from the inner world of ideas, memories, and experiences.

This classification of personality types come from the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® (MBTI), the most widely used personality assessment in the world, based on the research and writings of psychologist Carl Jung.

As you may know, Introvert Unbound has long specialized in the social integration of those of us with a preference for introversion. As a newly certified MBTI® practitioner, I’m not only qualified to administer the MBTI® assessment, but to interpret the results for your specific personality type and craft an individualized game plan for your social success in dating, making friends, or at work.

After taking this deep dive into what makes you tick, we’ll zero in on how your preference for introversion or extroversion impacts how you:

  • Take in information
  • Decide and come to conclusions
  • Approach the outside world

Unlike the vast majority of coaches out there, we won’t be selling you some one-size-fits-all approach for your social challenges nor will we simply go with our gut and wing it. Instead, we’ll be relying on one of the most accurate personality assessments ever created to draw a clear roadmap for how you can best interact with and relate to other people, effectively taking your social life to the next level!

We’re already using MBTI® to help clients and want to give you the opportunity to be our next success story. That’s why for the month of May, we’re offering a 20% discount on 1 hour of online/phone coaching with myself and Regina Hopkins, LPC, to interpret your MBTI® results and use them to design a social blueprint that works for you.

Just send an email to wes@introvertunbound.com today with subject “MBTI” and we’ll hit the ground running!

Overcoming Hardship as a Man

– by Wes Colton, Introvert Unbound

sad-boyNo question being born a man has its advantages. But you don’t need me to tell you it also comes with its share of obstacles.

When you’re struggling to pay the bills, getting left-swiped on all the dating apps, and generally confused about your place in the world, it can hurt to be constantly told how easy your life is simply because you were born with an X and a Y chromosome.

Painful as it is to have your problems laughed at and dismissed, whatever you do, don’t let yourself become bitter. Wallowing in negativity does nothing to improve your situation and, in fact, can knock you off your path entirely.

Skipping a Level Isn’t the Same as Beating It

-by Wes Colton, Introvert Unbound

Skipping-levelI get it. You’re not where you want to be in life and you’re overwhelmed by all the hard work it’s going to take to get there.

You’re constantly bombarded with advice from friends, family, coaches, therapists, and gurus: Read books. Socialize more. Lift weights. Take classes. Change your diet. Find a new career. All of these options—many of which aren’t right for you now or contradict one another—no wonder you’re starting to tune them out.

Obviously, you can’t do everything at once. The key is to pick a single area and make that your focus for a while.
