Chad Fowler: Your most important skill: Empathy

Chad Fowler – Your most important skill: Empathy:

“I’m also a very strong introvert. I recharge when I’m alone or in very small groups of people (no more than 2 including myself is ideal) and I exhaust myself in crowds or in constant discussion.

[…] The reason crowds of people exhaust me is that I am constantly trying to read and understand the feelings and motivations of those around me. If I could just go through life talking and not listening, hearing but not processing, alone time and time in groups wouldn’t be so different for me.”

That’s totally me.
