The only person you can affect is yourself.
You can influence other people, but they will always be free to make their own choices.
That said, you do have a few methods you can use to exert that influence:
When put to use, these can directly affect another person’s:
Therefore, if you care about someone enough to spend more time with them, you can tell them (Words), show them (Actions) or do both combined.
This will spark some type of emotion in the other person, which will generally affect their thoughts – and likely lead them to a new set of Words/Actions in return.
As you are an introvert and spend time with many introverted people, you probably have Thoughts/Emotions down. Start practicing with Words/Actions.
