A really great book that made me really examine my life and social interactions. I've always known I was an introvert, and that I had to work harder to get social skills and gear myself up for social interactions, and this book gave me new tools for examining that. I think I'll be able to make myself happier and understand people better with all the examples and studies this book talked about. ( )

While it's nice to read a book about the positive side of introversion, Cain's writing made me feel kinda awful about myself for having a few extroverted qualities. Didn't really appreciate that. But there was some good advice in it, so that was good. ( )

Interesting in many ways, although the constant mantra of introverted is better gets tired after a while. In spite of that, there are some real points to be made about how shallow and superficial the US society has become with an emphasis on style over substance every time. From Dale Carnegie to Tony Roberts,the smiling glad-handers seem so persuasive and no one stops to ask why, much less what. Good book for educators in its discussion of children and school, although a misunderstanding of PROPER cooperative learning groups is apparent. Not surprising, since some teachers don't get it either. ( )
  PattyLee | Dec 14, 2021 |
Reading this book in 2021, aspects feel dated or less important. That probably speaks to how widespread the ideas have become since the writing. I appreciated the information about the balance between a person's amygdala and prefrontal cortex, as well as Cain's stress on the need for balance between introverts and extroverts.

Some parts of the book seem to expose Cain's privilege, particularly when she talks about choosing schools for your children or switching careers to match your personality. Many people don't have this option. There were also points in the book where Cain gave advice that I do not think she has the expertise to give (marriage counselling).

If I had read this book ten years ago, I would have liked it better, but in today's slightly self-care obsessed world, introverts have been accepted as a norm, possibly partially due to this book. ( )

Epígraf
Informació del coneixement compartit en anglès. Modifica-la per localitzar-la a la teva llengua.
A species in which everyone was General Patton would not succeed, any more than would a race in which everyone was Vincent van Gogh. I prefer to think that the planet needs athletes, philosophers, sex symbols, painters, scientists; it needs the warmhearted, the hardhearted, the coldhearted, and the weakhearted. It needs those who can devote their lives to studying how many droplets of water are secreted by the salivary glands of dogs under which circumstances, and it needs those who can capture the passing impression of cherry blossoms in a fourteen-syllable poem or devote twenty-five pages to the dissection of a small boy's feelings as he lies in bed in the dark waiting for his mother to kiss him good night. . . . Indeed the presence of outstanding strengths presupposes that energy needed in other areas has been channeled away from them.

[Introduction]
Montgomery, Alabama. December 1, 1955.
[Author's Note] I have been working on this book officially since 2005, and unofficially for my entire adult life.
The date: 1902. The place: Harmony Church, Missouri, a tiny, dot-on-the-map town located on a floodplain a hundred miles from Kansas City.
[Conclusion] Whether you're an introvert yourself or an extrovert who loves or works with one, I hope you'll benefit personally from the insights in this book.
[A Note on the Dedication] My grandfather was a soft-spoken man with sympathetic blue eyes, and a passion for books and ideas.
Citacions

To ask whether it's nature or nurture ... is like asking whether a blizzard is caused by temperature or humidity.
"It's so easy to confuse schmoozing ability with talent. Someone seems like a good presenter, easy to get along with and those traits are rewarded. Well, why is that? They're valuable traits but we put too much of a premium on presenting and not enough on substance and critical thinking." (one venture capitalist)
We need leaders who build not their own egos but the institutions they run.
So if, deep down, you've been thinking that it's only natural for the bold and sociable to dominate the reserved and sensitive, and that the Extrovert Ideal is innate to humanity, Robert McCrae's personality map suggests a different truth: that each way of being—quiet and talkative, careful and audacious, inhibited and unrestrained—is characteristic of its own mighty civilization.
If there is one insight you take away from this book, though, I hope it's a newfound sense of entitlement to be yourself.
