Book Reflection: Quiet by Susan Cain

I've had this book lying around the house since Christmas and only got around to reading it this month. It somehow fell through the cracks but I'm glad I finally found the time to read it. This book was released back in 2012, so many people will already be familiar with it.

Quiet by Susan Cain

I'm an introvert. I think most people who grew up with me know this for a fact. I initially wanted to read this book because of this. I wanted to learn about the different studies and data that are highlighted in the book. I wanted to know if the feelings I have are normal.

The title also got me curious. "The power of introverts in a world that can't stop talking". Is there really much power in silence? Prayerful people will agree but many others will likely disagree. How can one be powerful if one is not talking? My key takeaways after the jump.
