A bunch of Pajibans reading and reviewing and honoring AlabamaPink.

Sophia’s #CBR4 Review #28: Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can’t Stop Talking by Susan Cain

When someone posted some interesting quotes on Facebook from Quiet: The Power of IQuietntroverts in a World That Can’t Stop Talking (2012) by Susan Cain, I developed a sudden interest in my natural personality type. I went looking for Quiet but the library was a little slow in its purchases. Instead I found, The Introvert Advantage by Marti Olsen, which I read earlier this year. I enjoyed both books for different reasons. The Introvert Advantage went into a little more detail about how the brains of introverts and extroverts function differently on a cellular level, which was fascinating. On the other hand, I appreciated how Cain did not turn Quiet into a cheering section for how much better introverts are than extroverts or a rah-rah self-help book. Instead she focused on the relative strengths and weaknesses of both personality types and how they work together to influence and interact in the world around us.
