Reading Quiet was SO eye-opening for me. I think it helped me not only understand myself better, but understand others better because I sure as hell didn't know what was up with all the extroverts around me lol

Quiet is such a fantastic book! I read it a few years ago as a card carrying member of the introvert tribe. May have to revisit it.

Wow. Thanks for the shoutout, Randy. I am very honored to be in an edition alongside Quiet.

The question you quoted is the one that keeps me awake as a parent. 20 years later, I am proud of the way my three young adults make decisions. Rarely the safe, conservative, logical decision I would have made for them, but one that pushes their boundaries.

hHy there, fellow introvert, nice to meet you. Perhaps that's why I too am rooting for Substack. It's everything an introvert would want, the opportunity for thoughtful, in-depth 1-1 exchanges. The twitter-sphere on the other hand, always freaks me out. On Twitter I feel like somebody who is at a party with an endless number of longtime friends who already have history and are deep into group conversations I have no hope of jumping into without confusion, overwhelm, and awkwardness. Go Substack.
