I first discovered Susan from her fabulous TED talk:
Her book is packed with information on what makes introverts tick--as well as how one even defines introverts and how even in the realm of introverts there are vast differences. First, in watching this, and then in reading her book, I knew I had some misconceptions on what introverts mean.
Now, I'm not going to say I'm an expert in this field, but I do have some first-hand knowledge from the battlefield. I thought introverts just mean shy and extroverts just mean outgoing. Wrong. It's a lot more complex than that.
With that being said, I will gradually explore the notion of being an introvert. Because I am one. This very subject was also mentioned in a past podcast episode by Mur Lafferty's I Should Be Writing where she herself confessed to being an introvert.
It's not all bad.
Being an introvert and also having a creative nature can have its advantages. But that is for another day.
