Introverts Revolt: Reclaiming Our Place in the Society

posted by Dr. Arnie Kozak

Introvert EdgeIf you are one of the nearly five million people to view Susan Cain’s TED talk on The Power of Introverts, your view of yourself and the world around you may have been radically altered.

I like to refer to B.Q and A.Q. That is, before and after reading her bestselling book: Quiet. Reading that book was a revelation. Things that I thought were deficits turn out to be part of my introvert nature. It was a huge permission slip to not have to apologize for being the way I am.

This revelation continued as I did the research for my forthcoming book, The Everything Guide to the Introvert Edge, which is available for pre-order.

As the title, suggests, I touch on everything that is relevant for introverts in a light, playful, and practical way.

I am happy to be part of the burgeoning introvert revolution. Stay tuned for more!

Sit Still
If you listen carefully to my meditation instructions, you might detect a contradiction. On the one hand, I de-emphasize the posture because I don't want people to get deterred by the physical difficulties of sitting. On the other hand, I encourage everyone to sit still and to resist the reflexive t
