Among my cohorts, we have a phrase about extroverts who can not withhold from chiming in on any topic no matter if it is evangelization to priest pedophiles to car wax…
They can not avoid “swinging at every pitch.”
Part of this is related to their own insecure needs to be significant, but often that is masked by the perception of (ill-deserved) arrogance.
And here’s the challenge: is it about you or is it about others? Humility is the ability to hold your power for the good of others and not personal gain.
Humility is just common-sense. If you are an expert in one area, you should recognize that there is a great depth of information in other area’s where you are not an expert.
You just don’t need to swing at every pitch. Listening and nodding works well.
