Quiet: The Power of Introverts

How to thrive in a world that can't stop talking.

"Shyness: An Evolutionary Tactic?"

The Quiet Revolution has begun.

Recently, the New York Times debuted the inaugural issue of a new section called The Sunday Review -- including a piece I wrote on the importance of shyness and introversion. It's available here. I'm optimistic that the Times' interest in this subject signals a turning point in our culture -- that people are ready to see the value of introversion as well as extroversion, shyness as well as boldness, quiet as well as loud. I sense that a paradigm-shift is underway.

And I'm thrilled that readers of this blog are a part of it. Please join the conversation by reading the article and commenting below. I'm looking forward!

(*I'm excited to report that the article is now the #1 most e-mailed piece in the entire Sunday Times. The Quiet Revolution has begun.)
