Every week I’ll be sharing what I read with you & please share with me what you are reading to inspire ✨ each other and break out of our filter bubbles. What I’m reading 📖 this week: QUIET // Want to know more? Read on!
Do you prefer one-on-one conversations to group activities? Do you work best on your own? And do you often let calls go through voicemail? Chances are you might be the introvert 🙊 type.
We seem to live in a society where being extrovert 🗣 is the default. ‘Quiet’ describes how we moved from modesty being an admired character trait to nowadays extravert ⚡️’out there’ personality branding bonanza.
Sensitivity, seriousness and shyness are mostly seen as second-rate personality types, but this book shows the advantages ✨ of having not only extroverts calling the shots. Solitude 🙌🏻 is an important key to creativity. But creativity (and innovation) often gets killed by extrovert aspects like collaboration and group-think.
Where do you think you are on the spectrum of introvert - extrovert, and why??
