Want to learn more about the introvert personality?


As a followup to my previous post on Introverts and holiday celebrations, here are some good resources:

The Introvert Advantage...How to Thrive in an Extrovert World by Marti Olsen Laney.
A great book packed with useful information if you want to understand the introvert personality better.

The Introvert's Guide to Success in Business and Leadership by Lisa Petrilli
A newly released e-book covering topics such as introvert marketing and networking, giving presentations and getting promoted.

An excellent article from Parents Magazine to encourage parents of introvert children. Lots of reassurance for worried parents and tips on how to affirm your child rather than striving to change them.

How to Win Friends and Influence People by Dale Carnegie.
This bestseller is for people who really want to develop their people skills.  Although written in 1936 it has some timeless concepts.  Covers topics like "How to become a good conversationalist" and "How to handle complainers."
