Quiet


“There's zero correlation between being the best talker and having the best ideas.”


The book brings a deep and refreshing view on introverted people and how they can use this trait to their advantage. It also shows that in order to succeed in life, contrary to popular belief, one doesn't have to be an extrovert.


KEY TAKEAWAYS:

1) The loudest person in the room is not necessarily the smartest, the brightest or the most effective.

2) Introverts can be excellent leaders and in many cases, better than extroverts.

3) Being introverted vs. extroverted is not necessarily good or bad, as long as you learn how to use your personality trait to your advantage and also relate to others who are different to you.


READ IF: You are an introvert and could use some ideas around how to use that to your advantage, or if you are an extrovert who wants to better understand introverts.
