Seek out like-minded people

Most introverts have a hidden strength: we're great listeners. This skill can be an immense asset when it comes to resolving conflict. Allow the other person to talk with minimal interruption, and rephrase what they've said to demonstrate understanding while expressing empathy for their feelings.
