Lending legitimacy to the introvert way of being as a natural part of the spectrum is something valuable to each of us, our teachers, partners, friends and families. Although valued historically and even now for its cultural and scientific benefits, our culture has superficially derided introversion
to the detriment of all and the unnecessary suffering of many.
This book was recommended to me along time ago. It was very thought-provoking made me think a lot about my own children and their personalities. I realize I need to relax and let them be there selves. Because I listen though I was confused as to what type of person I am I think a mixture of both. I wish I would've read this book years ago would help me to understand different types of personalities including my relationship with my own husband. Although it did feel like at some points that extrovert is bad introvert is good, but maybe that's how introverts feel every day in the mainstream world. Something to think about.
This book helped me understand after 50+ years on the planet why I prefer my own company most of the time.
This is a must read for every parent.
I am a self proclaimed introvert. I enjoy my alone time and find self in my writing. But many whom I work with find it difficult to swallow that I am introverted. This book helped me understand my self a bit more when I describes many introverts can be publicly extroverts and choose to go home and enjoy alone time. I spend several minutes in the morning before work pumping my self up, telling my self that the sooner I get started the sooner I can go home. Once home I immediately change get my self some tea and fall in to a relaxing chair with my love and our 3 dogs. This to me is heaven. I have recommended this book to most I know because it is a true reflection of people and can explain the many why's we have about ourselves and others!
