Experienced sales manager Joe Arrigo started his career coaching practice, Advisr Enterprises, in 2018. Joe Arrigo helps clients identify their ideal careers based on the Myers-Briggs Types Indicator personality assessment.
Myers-Briggs defines introversion as a preference for examining abstract concepts, such as internal feelings, over physical and social topics. Introverts may feel worn down when placed in over-stimulating work environments or required to interact with high volumes of people. In order to succeed in business, which is often dominated by extroverts, introverts must play to their strengths and design suitable work schedules and environments.
For example, because of their preference for solitude, introverts are often able to work well independently. This makes them ideal as consultants or in other roles that require self-direction. Introverts working in open office environments should seek out private offices to find a quiet place to complete their tasks. Since clear communication is key for securing clients and reporting progress, introverts can minimize anxiety by frequently practicing upcoming presentations and having a prepared elevator pitch for impromptu interactions.
Outside of his varied professional pursuits, Joe Arrigo enjoys reading and weightlifting, working out four times per week. He also reads upward of 50 books per year and enjoys ping pong, darts, and partaking in political discussion.
