Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can’t Stop Talking by Susan Cain

“There are times when silence is the best way to yell at the top of your voice.”

O.A. Battista

Do you prefer one-on-one interactions as opposed to group activities? Dislike small talk? Prefer solitude? Express yourself better in writing? Does time spent out and about often leave you feeling drained even if you have enjoyed yourself? If you answered yes, you may be an introvert.

What does it mean to be an introvert? In a world that values bold and hearty talkers what does it mean to be someone who is mellow and soft-spoken. Do not worry for without introverts there would be no writers, philosophers, inventors, and artists. Even in a world that cannot seem to stop talking there is still extraordinary power in those who choose to say nothing at all.
