The Secret Lives of Introverts By Jenn Grannemann

What’s wrong with you? Are you upset?
If you are an introvert, these are questions that you’ve heard at some point in your life, whether you’ve been at a party, at work, or at a family gathering. Because you like to spend time alone, it can be difficult for extroverts to understand that desire to get away from the crowd.
In The Secret Lives of Introverts, Jenn Grannemann, a self-proclaimed introvert with an online community for introverts, discusses the inner life of an introvert and debunks some of the myths about introversion.
