At Retreat in June, I had a conversation with my friend Martha, a fellow guild member, about introversion. We have a lot in common, Martha and I - we crave alone-time, we dislike crowds, we are disturbed by loud sounds, we prefer a good book to a movie, we need to retreat after socializing. Martha recommended the book "Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can't Stop Talking" by Susan Cain. I just got around to it, and only a few pages in, the book already resonates well with me.
Laura Fry (another fellow introvert) is reading the book as well, and brought it up on her excellent weaving blog, "Weaving A Life". In her comments, someone linked this TED talk video with Susan Cain, and I'd like to share it with you here. If you're an introvert (or you love someone who is introverted) I think you'll find it interesting.
