Every introvert needs this guide

I’m so glad that I found this book. As a self-proclaimed “Biggest Introvert In The World”, it’s a bit tough to get ahead. But this book gives a lot of great tips for Introverted people to not go insane in an extroverted world. Just about every area of life is covered, from professional, to romance, to social stuff, to self-confidence and getting over negative thinking. I actually learned quite a lot about introverts that I didn’t know, too, so that was neat. This book is fun to read, with nice humor and a laid back writing style that I’ve come to expect from For Dummies books. I know I’ll be going back through this one again and again!

This is a good reference and advise book. It seems like it might be most helpful to a person who is high on the spectrum of introversion. I think I am more in toward the middle so some of the advise for me seemed a bit “eh.” it also seemed to give specific advise for people who work in a traditional cubicle office environment. So if you don’t work it that specific type of environment some of the advise doesn’t carry over. Yet overall it was an easy read. It is good to refer back to for advise in certain situations. The advise was practical and for the most part useful.

Be successful as an introvert (without bashing extroverts)

When looking for a book on introverts and how to be successful as one, I did not like that I was finding books that pit introverts and extroverts against each other. I love that this book does not bash extroverts in order to make introverts feel better about themselves. This was important for me in finding a book because I want to flourish as an introvert without having to look down on extroverts who have their positives (just as I do). Very good read!

Great book and easy to apply to everyday experiences!

The book does a nice job of addressing the issues we all run into each day and provides tools for mastering the best way to interact in different settings successfully. I consider myself an introvert who has learned to operate in a work environment filled with extroverts and the book had some good tips for me! Enjoy!

I am an introvert, not dying

I have been studying up on introverts for awhile, mainly because I am one and also I have a daughter who is even more introverted than I am. What I have found all across the internet and in books is this idea that introverts should be coddled and treated as if they are dying–basically its like we have a disease and should be handled with kid gloves. In the process, I feel as if we as introverts somehow see extroverts as the enemy when clearly, that isn’t the case at all. We are just all different. Period. So when I picked up this book, I felt like “oh boy, here we go again…another sad call to action to treat introverts special”. But what I got instead was a deeper knowledge of ways that I, as an introvert, can blend in to a universe that clearly is extrovert-leaning.

Some stuff I’ve heard before. Still, pretty good advice.

I am an introvert. I’m so introverted I can make other introverts look social. Not all the time, but sometimes. My reticence has affected every aspect of my life: work, school, social… I consider myself reserved and dislike those who dislike moments of silence, feeling they must fill the void with blather. I don’t think there’s anything wrong with me. I think the fault lies with society.

+ ½ *: Excellent companion to Quiet book

Absolutely Delightful Book On (Jungian) Introversion

Far too many people still confuse introversion with shyness or sensitivity. As author Joan Pastor illustrates, these three qualities are not the same.

Useful and timely info

This book presented some new ideas I had never read before regarding the personality trait known as introversion. I knew that introversion, shyness, and sensitivity are distinct personality factors. But I didn’t know how they reacted together. I especially liked the part on how to cope in an extrovert-centric world. If you need to learn how to cope with an open office plan-which is quite hard on introverts-this book will give you plenty of ideas and coping methods. Some chapters like Managing for Introverts I skimmed as I am not a manager but there is plenty of info there for the manager who is introverted or who manages introverts (although I have difficulty imagining an extrovert being interested in this problem).
