    At least one-third of the people we know are introverts. They are the ones who prefer listening to speaking, reading to partying; who innovate and create but dislike self-promotion; who favor working on their own over brainstorming in teams. Although they are often labeled "quiet," it is to introverts that we owe many of the great contributions to society--from van Gogh’s sunflowers to the invention of the personal computer.

    If you could sum up Quiet in three words, what would they be?

    Almost completed with Part 1 and it sounds like she is writing about my life. For me, it has begun to put me at ease at work, after only 21 years, I can now feel comfortable with myself and realize nothing is wrong with me. Thank You! Excited and looking forward to Part 2. Three words:


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Quiet?

    My life has been very similar in almost all the situations talked about in the book. Unbelievable. Hit it right on the head! Made me giggle and laugh at times as I listened in my vehicle during my long commutes. Anybody who may have seen me, probably thought I was pretty weird. That really doesn't bother me though as my two boys always tell me I am a nerd. :)


    Any additional comments?

    Just to hear there are truly other introverts out there going to similar life situations make me feel like I am okay and normal in a wold of extroverts and a society that reinforces and favors those behaviors.
