A survivor’s guide for introverts who live in an extrovert world

Look around you: The world was surely made by, and exists for, extroverts. It is loud. It is fast. It values aggression. It rewards push. These are all extrovert characteristics. In such a world, introverts are sojourners. How can these quiet, contemplative, reclusive personalities get by? Learned psychoanalyst and proud introvert Marti Olsen Laney has some thoughts on the subject. She spells them out in her guidebook for introverts. She details introversion, what the introverted temperament involves and why it exists. The book provides some helpful approaches and techniques introverts can use to exist and even thrive in an extrovert world. getAbstract concurs that audacious extroverts make the external world go around and that thoughtful introverts help them understand the internal world, or the “tides of day and night,” as poet and introvert Dante Gabriel Rossetti described it. If you are an introvert or want to understand one better, turn to Laney’s insightful book on introversion. She is, quietly, a leading authority on the topic.
