'A gentle tongue can break a bone'

Can introverts succeed in PR?

Scott Baradell of Media Orchard recently wrote an insightful post on whether one needs an "outgoing personality" to succeed in public relations. What he says may surprise you.

Scott writes that "the PR field has too many surface smiles and surface thinkers, and not enough going on underneath. That's something we introverts can use to our advantage." Check out his post.

I've known people who are almost painfully shy who have excelled in such realms, Deb. Personally I'm quite situational and am probably shier and more introverted than many might think. But, when I am on the job it's a bit like walking on stage. Interesting post, but all of yours are, so there.

Ian: I'm convinced that you're at the top of your game when it comes to working a room. You're going to have a tough time convincing people that you can be shy. :-)
