This book is a must-have for anyone who is or has an introvert in there life. As an introvert I learned a lot about myself and others. Mainly how some of my most frustrating points of my life had to do with my misunderstanding of my own view, and or someone else's view on "life". Get this book and help yourself to learning more about human life and diversity.
My husband and most of my friends and family are all introverts while I am one of the most extroverted people I have ever met, made more obvious by those I surround myself with. I wanted to read this book in order to get more perspective.
Unfortunately, along with the perspective came a lot of hurtful words: Studies that suggest extroverts are better at leading, need more data. Disney authors draw all of their positive characters to reflect introverts and negative characters to reflect extroverts. Extroverts are unempathetic. Extroverts are not good at listening. Extroverts have a hard time understanding others. Extroverts are not considerate. Extroverts are not as good at reading as introverts! By the end I felt horrible about myself and I was horrified that I may be in a constant state of offending my loved ones.
I appreciate the goal of empowering introverts and I will strive to do so in ways that this book helped me to understand. I just wish this book had the ability to lift up introverts with out stepping on extroverts.
The fact that the book covers all my questions about who I am is amazing. I felt the book was talking to me and it really helps me understand my children as well
I'm having to listen to it over and over. I am easily DISTRACTED THOUGH THE CONTENT IS INTETESTING. PROBABLY DUE TO THE FACT THAT I'M AN INTROVERT WITH A.D.D..
