Quotes by Susan Cain
Introverts are capable of acting like extroverts for the sake of work they consider important, people they love, or anything they value highly.
Don’t think of introversion as something that needs to be cured. Spend your free time the way you like, not the way you think you’re supposed to.
Everyone shines, given the right lighting.
Stay true to your own nature. If you like to do things in a slow and steady way, don’t let others make you feel as if you have to race. If you enjoy depth, don’t force yourself to seek breadth.
There’s zero correlation between being the best talker and having the best ideas.
The secret to life is to put yourself in the right lighting. For some it’s a Broadway spotlight, for others, a lamplit desk.
’Come out of your shell’ – that noxious expression which fails to appreciate that some animals naturally carry shelter everywhere they go and some humans are just the same.
Introverts listen more than they talk, think before they speak, and often feel as if they express themselves better in writing than in conversation. They tend to dislike conflict. Many have a horror for small talk, but enjoy deep discussions.
Introverts, in contrast, may have strong social skills and enjoy parties and business meetings, but after a while wish they were home in their pajamas. They prefer to devote their social energies to close friends, colleagues, and family.
