Format: Paperback

ISBN: 978-0-141-02919-1

A revolutionary book detailing how society vastly underestimates introverts and teaches us what introverts and extroverts can learn from one another. Do you thrive in social situations or do you retreat to the quietness of your home? If you’re the former, then you’re likely extroverted and, lucky for you, are praised by western society. For centuries, extroverts have been seen as the ideal personality. They are social butterflies, they are bold, and they make great leaders. Institutions like Harvard praise extroverts and even presume extroversion to be the supreme standard for success. But why is this? Introverts are typically seen as awkward and shy, but that’s not the case. Instead, introverts simply thrive in a different kind of environment. Introverts value serious conversation over small talk and are more likely to contemplate big decisions, and for these reasons, introverts can be just as successful as extroverts in a world where we can’t stop talking. In fact, people like Dr. Seuss, Rosa Parks, Steve Wozniak, and Bill Gates are all people who contributed greatly to society despite having introverted personalities. As Susan Cain presents throughout Quiet, introverts and extroverts can learn from one another and can have the power to change how the world views the misunderstood, but influential introvert.
