One of the best books I’ve ever read! Susan Cain discussed intro/extroversion from a cultural perspective, the difference between the extrovert ideal in Western culture and the introvert ideal in Eastern one. Being an introvert myself, this book reasonates so much with me. It shows me my strengths and how I can live in an extroverted world, how to communicate with other extroverts and how to raise an introvert child. It helped me seeing the bigger picture, of how I am not a special snowflake, and that extro/introversion are only part of a human trait that help us survive until now as a race.… (lisätietoja)

Dulce-amărui

Dulce-amărui
E ca și cum ai sorbi
Un pahar cu apă rece
După ce ai plâns
O tristețe
Simțită adânc în oase
Care te motivează să faci
Ceva inspirațional
Dar te lasă într-o stare de
Îndoială
Dacă ești destul de bun
Pentru sarcină.

English:

Bittersweet

Bittersweet
Is like sipping
A glass of cold water
After weeping over
A sadness
Felt deep inside your bones
That motivates you to do
Something inspirational
Yet leaves you in a state of
Questioning
Whether you are good enough
For the task.

Reading this has been an epiphany for me; I fit almost 100% into the description of an introvert. I wish someone had explained this to me years ago. Things that I thought were a problem are simply natural for the type of person I am. And there is nothing wrong with being an introvert. Many of our greatest minds are and have been introverts. Now, if anyone tells me I should make more of an effort to socialize in big groups (where I do not feel comfortable), or learn how to chit chat about meaningless things, or stop being so serious or so sensitive, I can ignore them (or if I'm in a good mood, explain why that isn't necessary or true). Cain also explains about extroverts and how our society (most of western society) is prejudiced in favor of extroverts, how classrooms and open-plan offices are set up for them, and much more. As the blurb on the back says, "For far too long, those who are naturally quiet, serious or sensitive have been overlooked. The loudest have taken over -- even if they have nothing to say."… (lisätietoja)

This was quite a thought provoking book. I see a lot of myself in it. It's heartening to realize that introversion isn't a handicap.
