Introverts. You’ve probably heard the term: people who are refreshed by time alone and often enjoy creating things, as opposed to extroverts, who are refreshed by time with other people. Most people in the world – at least two thirds to one half – are extroverts. In schools today, extroverted kids are most valued. They’re the kids who raise their hand first, the ones who always have something to say, the ones who work best in groups. Not many teachers value the kids who sit quietly, taking notes and listening without speaking once. Susan Cain’s Quiet Power explores the upsides of introversion. These books can be refreshing to introverts, as many of them think there is something wrong with their personalities. Believe it or not, I’m an introvert myself. This book explains the nature of introverts, the way introvert and extrovert friendships work, and how some of the world’s best companies are run by introverts. I can’t wait for my extrovert younger sibling to read this book and understand just how differently our brains work. For all of the introverts out there: you’re not alone. This book is for anyone who wants to read it – introverts, extroverts, parents, teachers… anyone!
