“Introverts are drawn to the inner world of thought and feeling, said Jung, extroverts to the external life of people and activities. Introverts focus on the meaning they make of the events swirling around them; extroverts plunge into the events themselves” ~ page 10



“Extroverts tackle assignments quickly…they make fast (sometimes rash) decisions and…enjoy ‘the thrill of the chase’ for rewards like money and status…” ~ pg. 11



“Introverts, however, often work more slowly and deliberately…they like to focus on one task at a time and can have mighty powers of concentration. They’re relatively immune to the lures of wealth and fame.” ~ pg. 11



“Shakespeare’s oft-quoted advice, ‘To thine own self be true,’ runs deep in our philosophical DNA. Many of us are uncomfortable with the idea of taking on a ‘false’ persona for any length of time. And if we act out of character by convincing ourselves that our pseudo-self, we can eventually burn out without even knowing why.” ~ pg 210





“There’s no such thing as a pure extrovert or a pure introvert. Such a man would be in the lunatic asylum.” ~ Carl Jung



“I am a horse for a single harness, not cut out for tandem or teamwork…for well I know that in order to attain any definite goal, it is imperative that ONE person do the thinking and the commanding.” ~ Albert Einstein
