Tracey Wow. I've been looking at this on Audible for a while – I think I need to stop looking and start buying. It sounds like an extended version of that moment watching Star Trek all those years ago when I heard myself described:

Barclay: Being afraid all of the time, of forgetting somebody's name, not, not knowing... what to do with your hands. I mean, I, I am the guy who writes down things to remember to say when there's a party. And then, when he finally gets there, he winds up alone, in the corner, trying to look comfortable examining a potted plant.
Geordi: You're just shy, Barclay.
Barclay: Just shy... Sounds like nothing serious - doesn't it? You can't know.

Crystal Starr Light It's a great read, definitely eye-opening!! If you can get your hands on it, do!

Ien van Houten I listened to an interview with the author, and my reaction was this: only in North America does one need to devote a whole book to state the obvious. Not all people are outgoing, really? Surprise! But if this gives some people permission to be themselves, more power to it.

Crystal Starr Light I know; I think the hard thing is that so many who are "quiet" are made to feel out of place and somehow wrong at work and school. At my work, I'm constantly being told to be more aggressive and confident. In college, I got so much anxiety when doing group projects or oral presentations. I knew I was an introvert, but I don't think I quite understood everything that entailed.
