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.
The summary and analysis in this ebook are intended to complement your reading experience and bring you closer to great works of nonfiction.

    n the flip side, studies show those with a certain serotonin-regulating gene, associated with introversion, take 28% fewer financial risks and have been shown to outperform their dopamine-driven counterparts when sophisticated decision-making is involved. It’s this “sophisticated decision-making” that can make all the difference in a financial scenario.

    Cain argues that stimulation plays a vital role: A person’s preference for external input is likely the single biggest difference between introverts and extroverts. Psychologist Hans Eysenck developed a theory that says humans will always seek out just the right amount of stimulation. Extroverts will seek out more; introverts, less. He focused his work on the ascending reticular activating system (ARAS).

    Cain wraps up this chapter by sharing her experience of joining a public-speaking support group that used exposure therapy and desensitization to help its members overcome intense public speaking fears. For her, it was successful.
