At 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 that we owe many of the great contributions to society.
In The Introvert’s Story, Peter de Kuster argues that we dramatically undervalue introverts and shows how much we lose in doing so. He charts the rise of the Extrovert Ideal throughout the twentieth century and explores how deeply it has come to permeate our culture. He also introduces us to successful introverts in Amsterdam—from a witty, high-octane theater artist who recharges in solitude after his performances, to a designer who quietly taps into the power of questions. Passionately argued, impeccably researched, and filled with indelible stories of real people, The Introvert’s Story has the power to permanently change how we see introverts and, equally important, how we see ourselves.
Does this sound like you or someone in your life? You enjoy time on your own but you care about people too. You’ve been told you’re a good listener. You think before you speak. You often notice what others miss. You do your best work when you can fully focus. You value quality over quantity in relationships. Your active mind is always thinking. In meetings, do you need to be asked for your opinions and ideas? Do you tend to notice details that other people miss? Is your ideal celebration a small get-together rather than a big party? Yet in spite of these strengths, you compare yourself to others. Fear sometimes still gets the best of you.
The good news is, you’re an introvert. The better news is that by celebrating the inner strengths and uniqueness of being introverted, The Introvert’s Story shows introverts how to work with instead of against their temperament to enjoy a well-lived life. Covering relationships, parenting—including parenting an introverted child—socializing, and the workplace, here are coping strategies, tactics for managing energy, and hundreds of valuable tips for not only surviving but truly thriving in an extrovert world.
