Introversion is not a deficiency or problem that needs to be “fixed.” Introversion is one of the basic dimensions of personality and exists on a continuum. Most people, however, are a mix of both personality types. As an introvert, you may feel out of place in a world “designed” for extroverts. This book will show you how to embrace your quiet, reflective side. You will learn to welcome solitude, be assertive in declining social invitations, and allow yourself time to be thoughtful, contemplative, and intellectual. You should be proud to be an introvert. Now learn to use it to be successful!
