Many people confuse introversion is shyness and antisocial behavior. This is a strong misconception, and “Quiet” dispels the many myths surrounding this important personality spectrum.
Quiet first explores the characteristics of introversion, and then covers how introverts can both succeed and fail. It tells stories of specific introverts and how they function in what, in many ways is a society that encourages extreme extroversion.
Finally, “Quiet” explores some habits introverts can employ to thrive.
