Mediator: Ambivert and Adaptable Advocate

Mediator advocates are ambiverted and adaptable.

Mediator advocates believe in assessing a situation and then using the best strategy possible to bring about progress in the issue they care about. They’re comfortable working in the public sphere or one on one. They believe change can come from working with people on both sides of an issue, but that you also need to call attention to your issue for progress to happen.

Ways to Advocate

There are many ways to take action and make your voice heard. Here are some ways that a Mediator might like to advocate:

  • Call or email your elected officials
  • Volunteer to register voters
  • Vote
  • Have political conversations with your friends and family about topics you may not agree on
  • Volunteer to work at a polling place
  • Run for office

An ambivert is someone who can be introverted or extroverted depending on the circumstances. They are sometimes called outgoing introverts or antisocial extroverts. In the right situations, they feel comfortable expressing their more outgoing or reserved natures.

An adaptable advocate believes that to bring about change, you need to employ both the barnstormer and bridge builder style of advocacy depending on the situation. The basic principle behind a balanced approach is being able to see where both methods of advocacy can work to further goals of a cause.
