quietAre you or your significant others introvert, extrovert or ambivert? Do you ever feel mismatched to your spouse, friends or your environment?

Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Won't Stop Talking, by Susan Cain, is a defense of introverts but also a guidebook for both introverts and extroverts to make the most of their style.

Do you think that American success is biased toward extroverted styles? Do you think that some cultures are more introverted and some more extroverted?

What are some ways that you can accommodate your needs for the right amount of social interaction and stimulation and interact effectively with others with a different style than yours?

These are some of the questions we will discuss at our next meeting. Introverts and extroverts are all welcome!
