What do Johnny Depp, Meryl Streep, Clint Eastwood, Tom Hanks, Harrison Ford, Angelina Jolie, Julia Roberts, Leonardo DiCaprio, Lady Gaga, Emma Watson, Courtney Cox, and Keanu Reeves have in common with Barack Obama, Steven Spielberg, Mark Zuckerberg, Warren Buffett, Bill Gates, JK Rowling, Tom Ford, Bob Dylan, and the Google founders? They are all introverts. So was Albert Einstein, Gandhi, Marilyn Monroe, Jimi Hendrix, Abraham Lincoln, Marlon Brando, Audrey Hepburn, the list goes on… This new book debunks the myths about introverts, which are roughly half the population. Being an introvert does not necessarily mean “shy,” it means taking the time to be reflective, attaining the spark needed to be creative…to be inward focused but not egotistical. Culture applauds and rewards those who are showy, loud: the partiers and bling-a-lings. But introverts prefer calm alone time, and when they are showy it is to bring a new satirical element to it. A twist, a different viewpoint reflecting contemplation. To them “more” is not always better. They prefer real friends over crowds, they look for meaning and ideas rather than glitz. They do not bore easily, due to an active imagination. On Instagram you will find many photos showing DiCaprio in a sneer of greed, laughing at what our society deems “losers.” But few realize this is satire, and his real IG account is about saving the oceans. Not selfies. Yuja Wang is considered one of the best musicians in the world, and she is a fashionista, but no diva. She is humble and thoughtful. An introvert. Anyone can be an inspiration and support literacy, helping to save the world from violence and ignorance, not just the famousAnd it’s a win/win!
