Quiet: The Power of Introverts


โ˜‘๏ธ After reading this, I felt like I understood myself more as an ambivert (i.e. mix of intro/extrovert) and learned what styles or strategies may suit those across that spectrum.

โ˜‘๏ธ Historically, activities/skills linked with extraversion has been praised as a key factor to success, for example, public speaking, presenting and socialising/networking. While there is nothing wrong with these solid skills, they are geared towards and favour the extroverts among us.

โ˜‘๏ธ Susan cleverly discusses the experiences of introverts and how we can better value their contribution and talents (whether they be your colleagues, friends or family).

โ˜‘๏ธ To 'Lean in' means to grab opportunities without hesitation.

โ˜‘๏ธ The style of writing is more conversional and an easy read.
