Discusses how extroverts in our society are bigged up so much, and if you’re anything other than an extrovert you’re made to think there’s something wrong with you. That’s like the story of my life.      source
@CaroWallis Love that book      source
Leaders needn’t be the loudest. Leadership is not about theater. It’s not about dominance. It is about putting the lives of others before any other priority. In Quiet, Cain affirms to a good many of us who are introverts by nature that we needn’t try to be extroverts if we want to lead. Simply being ourselves is more important — and more effective.      source

@norah_nr Haven't really. A good book I'd recommend is "Quiet" by Susan Cain —>      source
This book embarrassed me. It suggests that most of us undervalue introverts and, thus, effectively take a pass on about 40 percent of the population. In particular, introverts tend to be more thoughtful and deliberate.      source
@sfwriter Yes! Best book on introverts I've found.      source

My last book recommendation for 2020: Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can't Stop Talking by @susancain.It made me note that we should do our best to balance our introvert and extrovert personality traits to make them collaborate rather than conflict with each other      source
