The book that started the Quiet RevolutionAt least one-third of the people we know are introverts. They are the ones who prefer listening to speaking; who innovate and create but dislike self-promotion; who favor working on their own over working in teams. It is to introverts—Rosa Parks, Chopin, Dr. Seuss, Steve Wozniak—that we owe many of the great contributions to society. In Quiet, Susan Cain argues that we dramatically undervalue introverts and shows how much we lose in doing so. She charts the rise of the Extrovert Ideal throughout the twentieth century and explores how deeply it has come to permeate our culture. She also introduces us to successful introverts—from a witty, high-octane public speaker who recharges in solitude after his talks, to a record-breaking salesman who quietly taps into the power of questions. Passionately argued, superbly researched, and filled with indelible stories of real people, Quiet has the power to permanently change how we see introverts and, equally important, how they see themselves.Now with Extra Libris material, including a reader’s guide and bonus content

Quiet: The Power Of Introverts In A World That Can’t Stop Talking

Cain’s argument is clear and interesting, though not original: over the past century the US has moved from a “culture of character” to a “culture of personality”, as social admiration has shifted from ideals of private honour to public perception. This has led to the inexorable rise of the “extrovert ideal” and the “new groupthink” the belief that a team or collective is more intelligent and creative than the individuals who form it. Cain believes, firstly, that this is not actually the case, and, secondly, that it not only wastes the talents but also pathologises the psyches of the 30% or so of the population (including herself) who are introverts.

I think this is silly. Perhaps it is true in the US, but it is not true in Britain. We have not idealised extroversion. Most people in Britain would still rather be described as sensitive, spiritual, reflective, having rich inner lives and being good listeners than the opposite. (And, incidentally, I am not at all persuaded that introverts are “good listeners” in my experience we usually can’t be bothered.

Extrovert and introvert are simply not the same sort of things as female/male, black/white or alive/dead. I joyfully live one of the most “introverted” (and, indeed, quiet) lifestyles of anyone I know, but I do not tick all the boxes on any of the tests for introversion I have tried out this past week. All extrovert traits. But that wouldn’t be true, because, like most journalists most humans I’m a mixture of extrovert and introvert. But I also love spending time on my own writing and reading.
