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.
I have struggled with the negative impact of being an introvert all my life. Being called shy, aloof, and passive. After listening to this, I am more positive on my personality and confident in what I am able to do. I suggest this to anyone who wants to understand any introvert.
This book reminds me that I am an introvert and there is nothing wrong with it. It helps me to understand my sensitivity and uncomfortableness in public, but also about my strength. All the years that I try to make myself an extrovert. Now this book inspires me to embrace my true self and be very proud of it. Highly recommend this book to any introvert or parent or friend of an introvert.
I loved this book. it really made me rethink my interactions with other people and about how I am. I used to think being shy was a horrible thing to be and in middle school I did tons and tons of research to try to get rid of my shyness.
As an introvert, this book helped me understand a lot of things about myself and feel more comfortable with my personality. It also helped me understand the extroverts with whom I interact.
