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.… (mais)

4.5 stars. As an introvert, I appreciated her quiet tone, the gentle way in which she described the sometimes opposing sides to extroverts and introverts. As a 9 on the enneagram, I LOVED that she found value in both sides, one isn’t better than the other overall, but both have strengths to be encouraged and weaknesses to confront. Concepts were explained with stories, facts backed up with studies and proofs, and I came away encouraged with even more confirmation (as if I needed it) of my introversion, but also tools to assist me to use that to my advantage.

The only thing that I clashed with was her insistence on evolutionary development of these traits, just a simple difference of opinion/belief that doesn’t undo the value of her viewpoint, IMO. ( )

I love this book, and I love the extensive notes and research that have gone into it. ( )

Having picked up this book, I was, as a thoroughgoing introvert, at least expecting applicable descriptions, if not insights.

Indeed, there are a few points where I found myself in agreement with the text - for example, in her treatment of the current fad in schools for group activity as opposed to individual learning.

However, I generally did not see myself reflected in the book. The author spends a lot of time talking about traits such as fear of public speaking (I have never had difficulty speaking in front of groups) or nerves when confronted by crowded parties (I don't get nervous in such contexts, just very, very bored). I like throwing dinner parties (with, I grant you, interesting people).

Great blocks of the book are anecdata, although she cites some research. The research looks valid as far as it goes, but has the problem of her taking a probably multiply-caused phenomenon and then focussing on one cause which explains some of the cases, and not casting her net more widely.

Eventually I got to the back of the book, and there she says: "Contemporary personality psychologists may have a conception of introversion and extroversion that differs from the one I use in this book. Adherents of the Big Five taxonomy often view ... the tendency to have a cerebral nature, a rich inner life, a strong conscience, some degree of anxiety (especially shyness), and a risk-averse nature as belonging to categories quite separate from introversion." This might explain why those traits, all tangled up in her treatment, result in a portrait I don't recognize or find useful, although some are more applicable than others. (I'll cheerfully accept the "cerebral" label, and I'm broadly risk-averse and conflict-averse.)

In the same place she explained, sort of, her decision to misspell extravert as "extrovert" throughout the book, which was a constant irritant.

She wants to cast introverts as otherwise "normal" but shy, sensitive, and inward turning, probably because that's her experience, but also because it's an easier case to sell to extraverts than introverts who avoid many forms of socializing without shyness as an excuse.

This limits the overall usefulness and applicability of the book; instead of being a good coverage of a general phenomenon, it rides a hobby-horse. ( )

This is a spectacular book that both made me feel good about my introvert status and gave me some ideas for how to cope in the LOUD world of today. I heartily recommend it, it is an enjoyable and insightful read. ( )

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.

[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.
Citações

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.
