What I’m reading: Quiet by Susan Cain

“Introverts, in contrast, may have strong social skills and enjoy parties and business meetings, but after a while wish they were at home in their pajamas. They prefer to devote their social energies to close friends, colleagues, and family. They listen more than they talk, think before tehy speak, and often feel as if they express themselves better in writing than in conversation. They tend to dislike conflict. Many have a horror of small talk, but enjoy deep discussions.”

“When you go to a football game and someone offers you a beer, says the personality psychologist Brian Little, ‘they’re really saying hi, have a class of extroversion.'”
