I absolutely loved this book as a sensitive introvert myself. The author is able to clearly articulate my experience and frustrations and it was so inspiring and refreshing to finally feel Understood while learning tools to improve my own interactions
Yes, because it helps people to understand the two different personality traits. Also helps you to understand yourself if you are an introverted person.
Answered the questions about myself that I never understood. Very well written and researched! Thank you so much
She was awesome. I loved her voice and tone
I pretty much did. 2 days
I understand why I am the way I am now and knowing that I can take care of myself the way I need to
The book reveals itself slowly and the importance of the message takes hold in a very satisfying conviction. The narrator is so pleasant to listen to any message could be delivered and understood, however, the content is well written and argued. A wonder really.
Today's society is mainly awarding and adjusting itself to the extrovert oriented people. By doing so, we are harming everyone. Read this regardless of your main traits and personality and everyone will be better of.
I truly appreciate Susan Cain's hard work and ability to explain the phenomenon of "quiet". As a strong introvert I have honestly spent most of my life being upset with my shy and nervous tendencies. Seeing the anxiety I feel before a test, presentation, or even speaking to a large group as weakness. It's actually ironic how I would become more anxious at the initial feeling of anxiousness that it would compound out of control.
After reading, or should I say listening, to this book I have accepted and even embraced my tendencies.
This book has helped me reach the conclusion that my introverted tendencies are not only correct, but should be appreciated.
Only beg is that the last chapter about how to raise an introverted child, though helpful when I reflect on my own childhood, didn't hold my interest. Not being a parent, I couldn't appreciate the content as much as I did the rest of the book.
Covers the implications of multiple physiology studies and how different personalities interpret the same stimulus, different reactions and coping skills to dealing with becoming overstimulated.
Say something about yourself!
This is an excellent book, well written and presented
She has a very good voice and tempo for this book
No - I had to review constantly, the information was great
I love to read mysteries, histories, biographies, humor, and Jane Austen.
Too much of the book is devoted to the problems of introverts in an extrovert world. The first half of the book reminded me of my painful youth as an introvert. I almost gave up because the book
made me feel bad about myself. There is not enough celebration of the powers of introversion to offset the depressing recital of our misfit status in American society. The reader does a good job, but I cannot recommend this book.
This clears up so many things about introversion and provides real insight into how to make it a strength in a society that fails to value its gifts.
Throughout, the book illustrates the value of introversion and how introverts can cope with the difficulties they face.
Everyone I talk to about this book says they have read it multiple times and it has helped them with a child, a spouse, a boss, themselves, and more.
