Quiet

the Power of Introverts in a World That Can't Stop Talking

I was excited to read this being an introvert myself. I couldn't get past the first handful of pages. I have a background in personality psychology and the author makes gross blanket assumptions about introverts being "quiet" and closed off, completely disregarding all other types of motivations and personalities, and why things are designed and work in school and work settings - it's not because of some prejudice against introverts. I can be loud and opiniated and motivated - that doesn't make me an extrovert. TV programming isn't against introverts, it's just that nobody would watch a show about a quiet kid recharging by reading a book and thinking about the solution by themselves. Perhaps the author corrects her terrible assumptions later on, but I couldn't even give it a chance it was so poorly written and sources were probably cherry picked.
