At least one out of four people prefers to avoid the limelight, tends to listen more than they speak, feels alone in large groups, and requires lots of private time to restore their energy. They're introverts, and here is the book to help them boost their confidence while learning strategies for successfully living in an extrovert world. After dispelling common myths about introverts-they're not necessarily shy, aloof, or antisocial--The Introvert Advantage explains the real issues. Introverts are hardwired from birth to focus inward, so outside stimulation-chitchat, phone calls, parties, office meetings-can easily become "too much." The Introvert Advantage dispels introverts' belief that something is wrong with them and instead helps them recognize their inner strengths-their analytical skills, ability to think outside the box, and strong powers of concentration. It helps readers understand introversion and shows them how to determine where they fall on the introvert/extrovert continuum. It provides tools to improve relationships with partners, kids, colleagues, and friends, offering dozens of tips, including 10 ways to talk less and communicate more, 8 ways to showcase your abilities at work, how to take a child's temperament temperature, and strategies for socializing. Finally, it shows how to not just survive, but thrive-how to take advantage of the introvert's special qualities to create a life that's just right for the introvert temperament, to discover new ways to expand their energy reserves, and even how, when necessary, to confidently become a temporary extrovert.

ABOUT THE BOOK “We are ripe for a cultural shift toward the okayness of introversion. It’s all right for us to stop trying to fit in and to “shape up”.” Dr. Marti Olsen Laney started research on introversion after realizing that she was an introvert. In an interview on Synaptic Success, Dr. Laney says that she combined research and her experience with introverted clients, who often had similar characteristics. Dr. Laney found that there were many studies on introversion in other countries, and she began linking these together to show the genetic differences between introverts and extroverts. (Interview with Marti Olsen Laney) Dr. Laney wrote this book primarily for an audience of introverts. In the Overture to her book, she writes that she wants to help introverts understand themselves and reassure them that they are not alone. However, extroverts may also find the book helpful in understanding their introverted friends and family members. Extroverts may discover and develop the self-reflective qualities of introverts. MEET THE AUTHOR Taryn Nakamura was born and raised in Hawaii, where she's recently returned after receiving a B.A. in English at Yale University. As a writing concentrator at Yale, she focused on fiction, but as a Hyperink writer, she's learned that nonfiction can also be fun. In her free time, she likes to run at a walking pace, haunt libraries, and eat pickles. EXCERPT FROM THE BOOK Temperament has a genetic basis. Jung believed that diversity along the introversion and extroversion continuum had evolutionary advantages because there was balance among types of personalities. Introverts’ and extroverts’ brains function in different ways. In PET scans, introverts showed more blood flow to their brains. Introverts’ blood traveled a complex pathway to parts of the brain responsible for memory, problem solving, and planning. Extroverts’ blood flowed primarily by a shorter, simpler pathway to areas responsible for sensory processing. The pathway that extroverts use requires a neurotransmitter called dopamine. The dopamine circuit is a reward circuit and it is related to movement and learning. Extroverts have a low sensitivity to dopamine and need more dopamine to feel good. Extroverts also need adrenaline to make more dopamine... Buy a copy to keep reading!

"HOW TO THRIVE AND WIN AS AN INTROVERT, IN THE WORLD OF EXTROVERTS!" The stereotypes on intro/extroversion have been going on for many years, yet we do not take the effort to correct any of them. Introversion, in particular, is one of the most frequently misinterpreted personality traits. Many issues originate from the lack of distinction between introversion and being shy-- the former is much more detailed as the introvert himself is just more concentrated in his own world, yet it does not mean he can not interact with others if he needs to. This book was created with high hopes of shedding light on the misconceptions that often discourage the introverts. Some of these individuals are fed up in being forced to alter their ways. People have no idea that introverts can be the most independent types of people you will ever meet. Because they choose the serenity of being on their own, they have the tendency to be more self-dependent and devoted. They are visionaries-- they take their time evaluating things and go through the details with an excellent focus and accuracy. In this book, we aim to reveal to you why we should accept and thrive as introverts! In this book, you will learn: Introduction Our Motto: "You're Okay But Only In Tiny Doses." How Does Introversion Influence Character? Being Around People Drains Energy Introvert Traits Benefits Of Introversion Stops And Smell The Roses. Life Teems With Little Surprises.

For anyone who loved Susan Cain’s Quiet, comes this practical manifesto sharing the joys of introversion… This clever and pithy book challenges introverts to take ownership of their personalities...with quiet strength. Sophia Dembling asserts that the introvert’s lifestyle is not “wrong” or lacking, as society or extroverts would have us believe. Through a combination of personal insights and psychology, The Introvert’s Way helps and encourages introverts to embrace their nature, to respect traits they may have been ashamed of and reframe them as assets. You’re not shy; rather, you appreciate the joys of quiet. You’re not antisocial; instead, you enjoy recharging through time alone. You’re not unfriendly, but you do find more meaning in one-on-one connections than large gatherings. By honoring what makes them unique, this astute and inspiring book challenges introverts to “own” their introversion, igniting a quiet revolution that will change how they see themselves and how they engage with the world.
