    Im not a big reviewer of books but this book has been eye opening I flew through it in a couple of days I always thought I knew myself pretty well but this book not only taught me about myself but how others see act and make decisions because of temperament As an introvert who has recently been been discounted because of my reserved temperament the ever popular phrase “you’re not outgoing enough” or “you don’t talk enough I highly recommend this book to anyone who desires to know about the introvertextrovert dynamic and how these traits affect decision making socialization relationships and even information processing This book explains introversion and extroversion through The Chinese philosophy of yin and yang and the need for balance of both of these in ourselves and it the world around us I was convinced I had a pathology an inability to assume and to keep up with the extrovert ideal This book helped me understand and value my uieter side but also strategies of how to navigate and participate authentically in a world that tends to value the outgoing cheerful attention seeking center of attention extrovert uiet by Susan Cain is another great book for this as well perhaps better in strategies to help create a balance of temperament Introvert revolution is geared toward leadership but I think does an excellent of explaining the vast differences in personality and decision making of introverts vs extroverts the shame that can be associated with being an introvert and how to take back your pride in advocating for even just yourself

    According to Andy Johnson Western culture especially the American if there's a single one is in favor of extroverts Leaders need to be outspoken standing firm agile charismatic and decisive a hero Introverts are treated as second class citizens In Introvert Revolution Leading Authentically in a World That Says You Can't the author pleads for the 50% of the population who identifies as introverts He uses the yin yang symbol to model both personalities gender issues western eastern dichotomies leadership traits nature nurture debates and the necessary holistic approach to differently shaped humans living and collaborating in the same place Another important model throughout the book is the DISC assessment While many of the world leaders and influential people from Barack Obama and Mark Zuckerberg to Mother Theresa and Albert Einstein can be identified as introvert we're inclined to value extroverts Groups famously follow the opinions of the most dominant or charismatic person in the room even though there's zero correlation between being the best talker and having the best ideas The book's providing room for the large minority to embark on a personal growth path and experience the fruits of self acceptance Johnson freuently referes to Brené Brown's take on vulnerability Susan Cain uiet The Power of Introverts in a World That Can't Stop Talking Malcolm Gladwell and Mike Robbins Be Yourself Everybody Else Is Taken Transform Your Life with the Power of AuthenticityJohnson teaches to be authentic and live in harmony with the extroverted leaders around you Nothing disualifies an introvert from becoming or being a leader Both bring insight and differing perspectives to the conversation and decision making Their brains are wired differently which has many benefits optimally a societal balance between these two complementary halves can be found affirmed and embraced This book is about a personal revolution an internal change of mind Both the way you view yourself as well as others get inspiration for renewal You can revolt against the current culture and its impact on you personally and become the leader in the fullest sense you were destined to be The book has several appendices on measuring introversion and extroversion extroverts who get it and whole person coaching Johnson's service besides writing books

    Introverts AND extroverts should read this excellent book I'm extroverted and wanted to better understand my introverted auaintances WOW this book is so enlightening and informative Everything I previously thought I knew about introversion was wrong This book completely blew my mind and I highlighted and marked it up to make sure I could always come back to the points I wanted to review Mr Johnson's understanding and explanation of introversion is spectacular I feel my eyes have been opened on how to relate to my employees friends children and spouse I learned how the introvert's brain processes information not betterworse than an extrovert just different and I learned not to put them on the spot for a super uick answer or impromptu brain storming session but to give them advance notice so they can really think about and process the information at hand I read a ton of books every week and I can honestly say this book is one of the best books out there to understand and relate to people and maybe yourself Well done I highly recommend this book

    I know introverts will appreciate this book but I truly hope extroverts will read it as well In the book Andy Johnson provides insight into the differences in the wiring of introverts and extroverts describes how western culture tends to value extrovert behavior over introvert behavior and explains how organizations can benefit from leadership consisting of both typesAndy is urging introverts to use their particular strengths to fight a “uiet revolution” to change how the world views introverts Society will benefit from the balance achieved by having the risk takers and the cautious planners working together Introverts will benefit from finally being appreciated for what they bring to the table

    Of course it isn't as good or eye opening as Susan Cain's uiet but it does build upon it or at least try to by providing a framework for understanding introverts and extroverts and everyone in between as well as offering practical advice for seeing the value of all and finding ways to work together Couched in a comparison between Western and Eastern ways of looking at personalities the book might be off putting to some but I found most of it well worth exploring

  6. Warren Benton Warren Benton says:

    If you unsure about being an introvert this book may help you The book has been compiled from his own reading and life experiences A uote I enjoyed from the books they introverts tend to be realistic or pessimistic and are highly skilled at seeing problems with situationsplans and strategies The book leans heavily on the eastern view with many references to yin and yang
