Have finally understood certain aspects of my character better through reading this book, including my deep dislike for playing charades: Thank you for writing this book Susan Cain. Especially how psychologically taxing it is to be social. I am introverted and have always be I agree with so much you said being an introvert myself.
I work with a girl who is also introverted and we talked about how it takes a TON of energy to be social for us. This is something I am sure extroverts do not understand or experience. I have started reading 7 Habits of Highly Effective People and it actually helps very much with accepting being introverted because it talks about how what matters is value driven actions vs.
It helps me realize that it is not about being socially acceptable because of being outgoing and social and have a huge personality but about rich values and innate traits.
I am sure this book will also do the same. It was recommended to me by a customer who picked up on my introversion and thought I would like it. I can be alone in my car for a 1h drive and not want to have the radio or music on. On sundays I often join the walking club for a long 25km walk, but I prefer to do it alone and oh, all the pity looks you get!
The idea of surprise parties makes me sick to my stomach, and any event where a thousand people are together is possibly even worse. I dislike small talk, but I probably hate even more how nervous I get when I have to do it.
I can feel sad for a brui I always thought I was just weird I can feel sad for a bruised tomato no-one wants to buy hey, he tried his best too, not his fault someone dropped him! After being with friends or colleagues, I need recharging time. I need to be alone. I almost always think before I talk.
I enjoy getting to the bottom of things, I enjoy detective work.
And I can go on and on. While reading this book, on occasion I was nodding so hard I thought my head might fall off. Even a few occasions I thought she was idealizing introverts. This book was not perfect, but somehow i feel that it was important for me to read it.
Overall, it was quite liberating. But that might not be an issue.Port Manteaux churns out silly new words when you feed it an idea or two. Enter a word (or two) above and you'll get back a bunch of portmanteaux created by jamming together words that are conceptually related to your inputs..
For example, enter "giraffe" and you'll get back words like "gazellephant" and "gorilldebeest". All the latest news, reviews, pictures and video on culture, the arts and entertainment.
