Beautifully written and highly researches. Great book to read for everyone ... As we all deal with introverts in our life as a parent, leader, friend and family.
I loved everything about this book. It seems like it was written just for me. I am 100% an introvert. I would definitely recommend this book too introverts and extroverts.
I can't really give this book any stars because I couldn't finish it, but apparently I had to if I wanted to tell my experience of this book.
One mistake I did was to not first find out who this book is specifically written for: introverts in America, THE most extrovert country I know of. Coming from Northern Europe, a very introvert part of the world, this book was not for me. It is too much about how introverts are special snowflakes (even though she says that half the world is probably introverts), and how much better introverts are at being creative, smart and workaholics. In my experience, you're not better at something just because you get energy from being alone and not with other people, it's not that simple.
I get that living in a country that cherishes the extrovert, this book is good for you. But this book is not for you if you live in an already introvert society.
Brought to the forefront, reasons and meanings for the way I feel and react to various situations I have encountered throughout my life. it also gave me some insight into how situations have affected who I am, and that I am not alone out there. Hopefully I can use this information to improve my life and relationships going forward.
An introvert has shared her observations with the world and the world is better off for it. Thanks to the author for producing a page turner that will help many people's lives.
I decided to look into Quiet after having heard more than one business leader/entrepreneur recommend it. As some one who has seemed to be a natural introvert but always sought positions and careers where extroversion was a much more sought after, and perhaps appropriate trait, this book has truly helped me to find more comfort in my natural tendencies. By comfort, I mean that I can still communicate clearly and affectively, without overdoing my professional, extroverted alter-ego. The fact that Susan bases most of the book on interviews, and studies really makes this a great book with real world application. It has also shifted my long-term outlook, as I have reconsidered whether I am seeking career roles that I think I should want, versus ones I actually want and can thrive in. I also recommended this to sales coaches and company executives that I work with since so much of the info Susan provides is applicable to almost any work environment.
