I'm an extreme introvert, so this book did me so much good explaining the difference between the extrovert and the introvert and describing the pros and cons of each personality type. I now feel less ashamed of needing alone-time to recover from any social interaction. Highly recommended for the many introverts among us readers!
I appreciated the various areas covers from child rearing to dating, first years of college and promotions at work. Very interesting compilation of findings shared and crafted into meaningful messages for any type of person.
This book has definitely changed me. It is a mind medicine for introverts. I definitely recommend this book to be read by everyone, including parents and school teachers who look after introvert children.
This book enlightened me on so much history concerning personality and its influence on centuries of generations. It is a very affirming book with excellent verbalization on the cerebral world. Great insight and great delivery. I can easily recommend this to many of my closest friends and family!
This book is beautifully written and narrated. Gives such insight into the labels we have given people and how being "introverted" implies a bad thing instead of seeing it as an attribute. Interesting when we as a society started feeling the pressure to be outgoing, that being extroverted was considered good, and the why. Will re-listen to it one day, as it was so interesting. Gave me some insight into others personality traits.
I related to so many things in this book, loved it. My wife and I learned a lot about each other's approach to things and to our kids. Highly recommended if you have an interest in learning about different ways of processing information and looking at the world. Useful for family relationships, but also in the corporate world or anywhere you work with other people.
excellent book; highly recommended for anyone who is an introvert or knows one. I found the stories in this book to be truly inspirational.
This is a very in depth look at introversion and how our society responds to it. We refer to it mostly as shy or quiet, and often misunderstand it as a weakness or setback. However, this book argues that it can very much be associated with a deep thinker that is well informed, well planned, and therefore, well prepared.
The book uses many examples (scientific and anecdotal) of actions/traits of extroverts & introverts and how they are viewed as a strength or weakness. The very detailed statistics can get overwhelming, maybe bc I'm an introvert, but they help support the very in depth look at introverts and their obstacles in social interaction.
Overall, it is a great read, and helped very much to get the reader to understand the "quiet" person
For every person who never understood why other people threw big parties and seemed to enjoy them - THIS IS YOUR BOOK!
this book was great in me introspecting on my own nature. I also found that the narrator was excellent given the subject matter. while listen, I found myself in a "meditative zone". good work.
