First you feel lied to and then you feel like you should have known. It's actually been only recently that I've heard someone say that introverts online don't often match up with who they are in person. Well excuse me! I bet that could be said of almost anyone online whether introvert or extrovert. Just what kind of lessons might there be for anyone online to show up authentically? Because if you aren't duping people, you are being the real you, right?

Courage coach patricia_weber_how_do_you_feel_when_you_are_duped

  1. 1. pro st rat e gie s.co m http://pro strategies.co m/wo rdpress/ho w-do -yo u-feel-when-yo u-are-duped/Courage Coach for The Reluctant Marketer HowDo You Feel When You Are Duped?First there was the media attentionto Beyoncés lip-synching at this years Presidential inauguration. She was stunningat the Super Bowl though. There was also Lance Armstrongs almost sad apology onOprah. Also was a conf using report of Manti Teos f ake girlf riend. The list could goon. Any one or all of these situations might have lef t you f eeling deceived.First you f eel lied to and then you f eel like you should have known. Its actually beenonly recently that Ive heard someone say that introverts online dont of ten match upwith who they are in person. Well excuse me! I bet that could be said of almostanyone online whether introvert or extrovert. Just what kind of lessons might there bef or anyone online to show up authentically? Because if you arent duping people, youare being the real you, right?Take time to have the courage to be you. Lets say you are more of an introvert. Itcertainly doesnt mean you are unsociable. And if you go the other way, moreextroverted, it certainly doesnt mean you of ten get so carried away in your talking that
  2. 2. you ignore others. It seems to me that some of our online behavior says otherwise.Some people may connect but then they drop things at the connection. Others makeshallow connects by f ollowing, f riending, or sending a def ault invitation to connectand leave it there. I doubt this has anything to do with more introverted or moreextroverted. Instead, people seem to rush into online social networking doing thingswith the least path of resistance f orgetting one of the most important things – to bethe real you.Have real conversations. Lets say you are the new person in your neighborhood.Someone comes knocking at your door to welcome you. Do you say you are too busywith whatever task is at hand? Or do you welcome them in f or a cup of cof f ee orsomething to munch on? My guess is, if you dont already have a previouscommitment, you welcome them in and have at least a brief conversation. Its reallynot too dif f erent f rom someone online connecting with you and then – accepting thatinvitation but not saying a word. Move the conversation f orward somehow.Only you can verif y the truth about you. Or thats what we tend to of ten think. Butsomehow the truth was uncovered about Beyoncé, Armstrong, Teo and more. Whileyou may not have such a high prof ile lif e to have reporters digging f or the truth, youdo have a lif e in which other people know you. By being the more authentic you, therewill be little reason f or gossip, rumors or untruths that may circulate about you. Myparents used to say to me, always tell the truth because you always will remember it.Ive f ound that keeps things simple too.On the surf ace it seems common sense to be someone worthy of belief and trust. Yetof ten we can be like the high prof ile people we hear about in the media, disbelief andliars, by many of our networking online actions.How do your actions or inactions in regards to connecting onlinepossibly make someone feel duped? Or do they know the real you?
