What do you think of when you think of an RA?
How does the stereotypical RA act?
How is this in conflict with an Introvert personality?
How do you embrace your introversion in a stereotypically extroverted job?
Not everyone can be an extrovert
Not all residents respond to extroverted RAs, some respond better to us introverts!
We are motivated, dedicated, and focused
We are imaginative, creative, enthusiastic
We are great listeners...and half of your job as an RA revolves around listening!
Many RAs don't know how to handle an introverted resident. Guess what? We do!
We don't exactly plan on going out every weekend, so our staffs know we are dependable
People trust you, because you don't talk a lot! (Seriously...this is the reason I have been told people confide in me. Because they know I won't talk about it.)
Quiet residents are more comfortable talking to quiet RAs (we know this from personal experience.)
Believe it or not....Ice breakers!
Individual coffee or lunch/dinner dates
Make a point of matching faces to names.
Motivational bundles...The small things!
Embrace opportunities to get to know them through Social Media
Two Words. Passive. Programming.
Some programs require a lot of instruction or speaking on your part. Do a program that is more about you planning it, than you leading it
Do a program that you would go to
Collaborate with another RA!
Collaborate with a department
Follow through with it!

Getting To Know Your Residents
Working With Your Staff
I won't be able to get to know all of my residents
I'm too quiet. None of my residents will like me
If I don't like going out, how can I expect my residents to want to come to my programs?
I don't know how I will handle having to deal with hall incidents
What if my residents don't listen to me?
What if I'm not excited enough?
