It’s time for a “quiet revolution!”
America’s “culture of popularity” holds extroverts—those who are gregarious, outspoken, and larger-than-life—in higher regard than those who tend to be reserved, serious, and contemplative. But think of all the great introverts—Rosa Parks, Albert Einstein, John Quincy Adams, and Lewis Carroll, to name a few—who were great leaders and thinkers, but just have a different way of expressing themselves.
Based on extensive research related to the latest psychology and neuroscience, and in-depth interviews with renowned psychologists and professors, Quiet looks at “the power of introverts” from a cultural point of view.
