Publisher's Summary

Is there a hidden part of you that no one else sees? Do you have a vivid inner world of thoughts and emotions that your peers and loved ones can't seem to access? Have you ever been told you're too quiet, shy, boring, or awkward? Are your habits and comfort zones questioned by a society that doesn't seem to get you? If so, you might be an introvert.

On behalf of those who have long been misunderstood, rejected, or ignored, fellow introvert Jenn Granneman writes a compassionate vindication - exploring, discovering, and celebrating the secret inner world of introverts. Drawing on scientific research, in-depth interviews with experts and other introverts, and her own personal story, Granneman reveals the clockwork behind the introvert's mind - and why so many people get it wrong.

So whether you're a bona fide introvert, an extrovert anxious to learn how introverts tick, or a curious ambivert, this empowering manifesto will answer questions you've always had.

Now I know nothing is wrong with me

I suspected I was an introvert, but had no idea into what level.
A big portion of the topics spoke to my experience growing up. That shame of being shy, a mumbler, and really thinking before acting.

I hate hearing: aww you are too shy! In a condescending tone specially. There’s nothing wrong with me.
Or the: smile girl! While walking down the street.

It’s comforting to hear that the way I process, react to situations have a perfectly sane explanation.
thank you ❤️

A book you would listen to more than once

Would you consider the audio edition of The Secret Lives of Introverts to be better than the print version?

I liked the audio version because I was able to repeat the nuggets of wisdom instantly - while driving.

What other book might you compare The Secret Lives of Introverts to and why?

This book was a new topic for me. I wasn't sure exactly what an "introvert" was, until I heard this. I don't think there's a comparable book out there on this topic.

What about Susie Berneis’s performance did you like?

The voice was paced well, not dramatic unless the content called for it. She was enjoyable to listen to.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Everyone knows one

Any additional comments?

It was worth my monthly credit!

Great book!

This book was well written. The author knows her information thoroughly and describes the attributes of introversion completely. I would highly recommend this book to anyone curious about introversion. Thank you for this information.

excellent book for people on the spectrum

as a extrovert listening to this book while being alone, do keep in mind of the "in general" theme that is present in the book. at some parts you might think the author is placing introverts as being better in some aspects, but in certain environments, you can achieve the same thing with self awareness. anything that is talked about in this book is the same for both extrovert Ambi and introverts in the sense that if you're over stimulated or under stimulated, you will be less than you are - less creative, less focused so on and so forth.
