Oh wow! I'm glad to find your blog! What a good idea...I am an introvert but have always had to function in very extroverted fields...like public relations and teaching. I look forward to reading more of your insights.

Thanks so much for stopping by and for your kind comments!

Yes, many of us spend our days faking it in the extroverted world...


I've long been aware that I'm an introvert and that it isn't a bad thing at all. I've struggled with coping, though, and didn't really think to look to literature before I ran into your blog. The tips in Laney's book were incredibly helpful for me as well. I thought especially valuable was the section where she explains the difference between introvert, shy, schizoid, and highly sensitive. Being introvert and being shy are so often just lumped together that it's starting to actively irritate me. Now I have some ammunition to combat that!


I received this book from a counselor after completeing the Myers Briggs... Wow! along with being an introvert I also have ADD this book was such a major help at a time of major discovery in my life.
