Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can't Stop Talking by Susan Cain (Read 12/30/2015 to 1/9/16)
This was a great read. I'm an introvert myself, although after reading the book I believe I am a highly reactive introvert, which means I can play the role of an extrovert when there is something I am passionate about. I felt the research and write up of the research on personality types was interesting and easy to read, unlike some books were the research portion puts me to sleep, Cain wrote in a manner that kept me interested and awake. There were many parts of the book where she was describing introversion, and I went "Ah yes, that is me" or "Ah yes, that total sense." There were some great tips on how to get along in an extroverted world, but to still be true to your introverted self. Remember, Introversion doesn't mean Anti-Siocial, it just means limited dosages or smaller portions of social interactions.
