This book demonstrates how introverted people are misunderstood and undervalued in modern culture, charting the rise of extrovert ideology while sharing anecdotal examples of how to use introvert talents to adapt to various situations. At least one-third of the people we know are introverts. They are the ones who prefer listening to speaking, reading to partying; who innovate and create but dislike self-promotion; who favor working on their own over brainstorming in teams. Although they are often labeled "quiet," it is to introverts that we owe many of the great contributions to society, from van Gogh's sunflowers to the invention of the personal computer. Filled with indelible stories of real people, this book shows how dramatically we undervalue introverts, and how much we lose in doing so. Taking the reader on a journey from Dale Carnegie's birthplace to Harvard Business School, from a Tony Robbins seminar to an evangelical megachurch, the author charts the rise of the Extrovert Ideal in the twentieth century and explores its far-reaching effects. She talks to Asian-American students who feel alienated from the brash, backslapping atmosphere of American schools. She questions the dominant values of American business culture, where forced collaboration can stand in the way of innovation, and where the leadership potential of introverts is often overlooked. And she draws on cutting-edge research in psychology and neuroscience to reveal the differences between extroverts and introverts. She introduces us to successful introverts, from a witty, high-octane public speaker who recharges in solitude after his talks, to a record-breaking salesman who quietly taps into the power of questions. Finally, she offers advice on everything from how to better negotiate differences in introvert-extrovert relationships to how to empower an introverted child to when it makes sense to be a "pretend extrovert." This book has the ability to permanently change how we see introverts and, equally important, how introverts see themselves.… (lisätietoja)

I loved this book. I can't count the number of times I found myself nodding and thinking "uh huh" to myself as I listened. Helps to remove that shroud of shame that hovers over the introverted living in an extraverted world.

Highly recommended for any introvert and for any extravert who has an introvert in their life. (Hint: That's all of you.) ( )

Let me start by saying that I probably fall toward the introverted side of the spectrum, and am at most an ambivert. What Cain has to say is important, and I am glad I read this book.

However, something to keep in mind while reading it: she is making a lawyer's argument, not a scientist's.

She rarely, if ever, presents arguments that undermine her position. She gives her interpretation of a clinical study, then follows it up with words like "suggests" and "speculates." In other words, she presents a study, then interprets and extends it for the reader in a way that bolsters only her case. It is not an impartial examination of the issue. She is trying to persuade us.

What makes this noteworthy is that she frequently makes value judgments on introversion vs extroversion. She often presents introversion as a virtue, and extroversion, at best, as something we all just need to put up with.

This book can help people realize that introversion is not a personality flaw, and that's an important point to make. But when she extends her argument to imply that introversion is *better* than extroversion, she loses me.

Overall, I'd recommend this book as an important book of our time, and for parents, teachers, and managers who'd like to better understand the introverts in their lives. But, it is an opinion piece, not a science book. ( )

This is an important book, particularly for decision-makers around HR, educators and office space planners. I found the central message very relevant to my life. ( )

É um daqueles livros que dá vontade de dar para todo mundo que conheço ler.
Como uma introvertida, me identifiquei com muitas colocações feitas e fico muito feliz, primeiro por esse livro existir, segundo por haver estudos apontando como a dificuldade de falar com pessoas estranhas, de se apresentar, de se expor de forma geral, não é um defeito, é apenas um traço de sua personalidade. Isso não te faz pior que ninguém.
Queria que o pensamento desse livro fosse exposto ao mundo inteiro, para que pudéssemos ser visto como deveríamos: nem melhor nem pior, apenas diferentes. ( )

La tesis de este libro es muy interesante: en la sociedad actual, lo que la autora llama "el ideal extrovertido" se ha entronizado como el modelo a seguir, superando con creces a la introversión al momento de relacionarlos con términos como éxito o liderazgo en el imaginario social.

La autora, a lo largo de las 333 páginas de este libro, se encarga de atacar esta idea desde varios frentes. Recurriendo a la estadística, la historia y la neurobiología, Susan Cain nos muestra que los llamados introvertidos cuentan con una serie de rasgos que, bien cultivados y alentados, no solamente son positivos sino que complementan a sus opuestos; y deben ser considerados en cualquier tipo de emprendimiento. Por ejemplo, tienden a una mayor capacidad de concentración al momento de enfrentarse a problemas de dificultosa resolución. O a persistir por más tiempo en ello.

Es un libro enfocado en gran medida al ámbito laboral, y más puntualmente al trabajo de "carrera". Aquí es donde Cain se pasa un poco en su celo, y parece caer en una suerte de declaración de superioridad de las personas en este lado del espectro de personalidad. Sobre el final, no obstante, admite el valor de los extrovertidos, y cómo los introvertidos pueden beneficiarse de su compañía, tanto profesional como personalmente. Del mismo modo, propone la llamada teoría "situacional" de la personalidad. Básicamente, que una persona puede actuar en forma diferente de acuerdo al momento y a las personas que la rodeen. Así, existirían muy pocos introvertidos o extrovertidos "puros", y se trataría más de cómo administramos nuestra energía de acuerdo a cada situación.

Como punto en contra, el libro está abarrotado de ejemplos, en los que la autora habla de introvertidos famosos y no tanto. Lo que está perfecto a modo ilustrativo, pero con el correr de las hojas se torna agobiante. Tanto, que hizo que dejara su lectura de lado por más de un año. A pesar de todo, plantea varios puntos que viene bien considerar en estas épocas de cuarentena. ( )

Tiedot englanninkielisestä Yhteisestä tiedosta. Muokkaa kotoistaaksesi se omalle kielellesi.
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.

[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.

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.
