Text, Don't Call: An Illustrated Guide to the Introverted Life

Text, Don't Call by INFJoe

Do you have someone in your life who is always quiet, wants to stay out of the spotlight, hates big group events, and always has an excuse not to meet up?  Are they antisocial?  Are they shy?  Perhaps, they're just introverted.

For those of you who are curious, an introvert is someone who get energy from time alone, and who often feels like a fish out of water in group settings.  While extroverts (most of the population) thrive on social events, introverts prefer to spend more time alone, since human interaction drains their batteries.  Think of it this way: extroverts are like cars: they need to go out to get their fuel (social interaction) to have the energy to run better.  Introverts are like your laptop: after too much use (or interaction) they need to be left alone to recharge.

This book is a great resource for anyone who knows an introvert, or for anyone who ever feels that they fit the above description.  While introversion has come into the public eye more in recent years, with introvert memes and #IntrovertProblems making the rounds, many people still do not understand what is.  Growing up, I was convinced for years that I was shy and/or antisocial when I realized that I would rather spend my time home alone reading a book, watching a movie, or enjoying a solitary activity.  I wish I had this book years ago!

INFJoe's illustrations and quick bite-sized bits of information make for a book that is both fun and easy to read. Introverts will find themselves smiling and shaking their heads at all the relatable situations, while extroverts might find themselves seeing this social minority in a whole new light. (Introverts are only 1/3 of the population!)  And perhaps the best part is that this book is really small.  Not only could you read the entire thing in one sitting (perfect for the busy reader), but its compact size allows it to fit nicely in a purse or bag, for a handy introversion tool on the go.

Whether you're an introvert, extrovert, or somewhere in the middle, this is simply a fun book, perfect to pick up for a quiet Saturday afternoon at home.
