Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can't Stop Talking, Susan Cain
Our society is built for those of us who thrive in social situations — but what about the introverts among us who suffer the consequences of being quiet in a noisy, community-focused world? Self-proclaimed introvert Cain suggests that shyness isn't a negative trait, but rather serves as an advantage in a social-focused culture. By choosing to avoid the spotlight, introverts can in turn prove to be more focused, more loyal, and, most importantly, more assertive than their extroverted counterparts. Cain's book helps introverts recognize their quiet powers and learn by themselves what they could be missing from an extrovert-dominated world.
