Summary

Is there a hidden part of you that no one else sees? Do you have a vivid inner world of thoughts and emotions that your peers and loved ones can't seem to access? Have you ever been told you're too quiet, shy, boring, or awkward? Are your habits and comfort zones questioned by a society that doesn't seem to get you? If so, you might be an introvert.
On behalf of those who have long been misunderstood, rejected, or ignored, fellow introvert Jenn Granneman writes a compassionate vindication - exploring, discovering, and celebrating the secret inner world of introverts. Drawing on scientific research, in-depth interviews with experts and other introverts, and her own personal story, Granneman reveals the clockwork behind the introvert's mind - and why so many people get it wrong.
So whether you're a bona fide introvert, an extrovert anxious to learn how introverts tick, or a curious ambivert, this empowering manifesto will answer questions you've always had.

mostly a very interesting book.

To get the bad out of the way. The section about love and romance droned on a fair bit too long and just made me think teenage girls wrote this section. There's other areas that can be misleading such over thinking. This isn't an introvert quality, my extroverted wife is constantly over thinking situations, and always focuses on all the negative possibilities rather than the positive ones.

Otherwise this book was really interesting. There is lots of #meto moments.

Now I know nothing is wrong with me

I suspected I was an introvert, but had no idea into what level.
A big portion of the topics spoke to my experience growing up. That shame of being shy, a mumbler, and really thinking before acting.

I hate hearing: aww you are too shy! In a condescending tone specially. There’s nothing wrong with me.
Or the: smile girl! While walking down the street.

It’s comforting to hear that the way I process, react to situations have a perfectly sane explanation.
thank you ❤️

A book you would listen to more than once

Would you consider the audio edition of The Secret Lives of Introverts to be better than the print version?

I liked the audio version because I was able to repeat the nuggets of wisdom instantly - while driving.

What other book might you compare The Secret Lives of Introverts to and why?

This book was a new topic for me. I wasn't sure exactly what an "introvert" was, until I heard this. I don't think there's a comparable book out there on this topic.

What about Susie Berneis’s performance did you like?

The voice was paced well, not dramatic unless the content called for it. She was enjoyable to listen to.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Everyone knows one

Any additional comments?

It was worth my monthly credit!
