Quiet Revolution

Posted by Jordan, 02 Dec 16

The Cheat Sheet:

  • How "quiet" came to be a pejorative term as the west urbanized and placed more value on personality (extroversion) over character (introversion).
  • Your perfect partner could be online right now...

    What are you looking for?

  • Better ways to understand our introverted friends (or selves).
  • Action steps for introverts to become more social.
  • Why being an introvert might actually be an advantage -- in social situations, negotiation, and creative pursuits.
  • Why brainstorming doesn't work and is mostly a social exercise vs. a creative one.
  • And so much more...

If you’re not one yourself, chances are pretty good you know more than a few introverts. In a world that seems to reward extroverts at the expense of their quieter counterparts, it’s no wonder the introvert feels increasingly out of place — often to the point of feigning extroverted tendencies just to fit in.

But this hasn’t always been the case. Susan Cain, author of Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can’t Stop Talking and co-author of recently published Quiet Power: The Secret Strengths of Introverts, explains why modern society works this way, what advantages introverts have over their extroverted peers, and why identifying as an introvert doesn’t have to be the death knell to your social life you might fear. You’re not alone, as you’ll discover in this episode. Enjoy!

    Wow the Quiet Revolution? The Quiet Revolution interesting, very interesting indeed well that speaks to me completely, whereas I've been an introvert since the day i was born and I'm 47 now, single, no kids, and i guess i can say lonely as hell yes, I'll admit. Ive been told for years going back to Junior high school 6- 8 grade women only date or respond to guys who they think will protect them from danger or who possess street cred and swagger. I never had swagger, I was never a social butterfly and when i made an attempt at it, i saw and heard of guys who were in a relationships and had multiple women on the side fathering numerous kids. This continues to this day, and I'm thinking from the posts i read by women who are looking for a good man? Really? Is that before or after you've separated or divorced and reaching mid 40's early 50's? Educate me? Well all women aren't like that! OK So i guess I'll find out when i hit 55 after having written over 10 books, made a few million dollars and now here comes the gold diggers, using that Jedi mind trick on me and hoping luck hell I fall for it? Someone give me some answers please?
