    Made me feel normal

    As I am a full blown introvert, I enjoyed reading this book because it let me know I was "normal." Now I wish my husband, children (all adults), friends, and work associates would read it also. I am tired of getting poor employee reviews because I don't reach out and hang around the water cooler with my fellow employees.

    If you want to understand more about why you feel the way you do read this book. If it doesn't matter don't bother. I am the true introvert and always always want to understand everything. This book was recommended to me by a friend. I didn't read it right away but after a few chapters it really became interesting to the point I was reading it outloud to my signfcnt-other. Very thought provoking. We both took the test too.

    A survivor¿s guide for introverts

    Look around you: The world was surely made by, and exists for, extroverts. It is loud. It is fast. It values aggression. It rewards push. These are all extrovert characteristics. In such a world, introverts are sojourners. How can these quiet, contemplative, reclusive personalities get by? Learned psychoanalyst and proud introvert Marti Olsen Laney has some thoughts on the subject. She spells them out in her guidebook for introverts. She details introversion, what the introverted temperament involves and why it exists. The book provides some helpful approaches and techniques introverts can use to exist and even thrive in an extrovert world. getAbstract concurs that audacious extroverts make the external world go around and that thoughtful introverts help them understand the internal world, or the ¿tides of day and night,¿ as poet and introvert Dante Gabriel Rossetti described it. If you are an introvert or want to understand one better, turn to Laney¿s insightful book on introversion. She is, quietly, a leading authority on the topic.

    I Feel So Much Better

    Until I read this book I felt something was wrong with me, basically because people were always telling me there was something wrong with me. Now I know this is just how I am and it is OK. I am not anti-social. I am not rude, I am not stand-offish, etc... I just work in a different way than the 'extrovert world'. I don't normally write reviews on-line for whatever reason. I guess I feel if there is a good product out there it should be that way and we shouldn't need to celebrate it. This is different. While this book does not really give you tools (which is why I gave it 4 stars) to deal with the extroverted world it helps you understand it is OK not to be an extrovert in an extrovert world. I would recommend this book to anyone who has been told they are anti-social when all they want is some peace and quiet time for themselves.
