3 Days, 3 Quotes Tag: Introverts
Alright. Today is day number two for the 3 Days, 3 Quote Challenge. Again, I have been nominated by Richa, from iScriblr; and I am gracious for the nomination. Without any more yapping, here is the second quote, by Susan Cain.
My Take On The Quote
First of all, if you haven’t read the book Quiet, by Susan Cain, I would recommend giving it a try. It’s an insightful book on the power of introverts.
Now, back to the quote. The reason I chose this is simple: people who talk and talk, and make it a point to use the biggest words found in the dictionary, annoy me. I know. It’s rude; but that’s how I feel. Now, don’t get me wrong. I love listening to a highly-intelligent individual speak. It’s just those individuals who have no knowledge of a subject, but throw out big words, in hopes that it trips us up into thinking they are the greatest. It’s like the kid in high school who only got good grades, because he or she spoke (or bribes) their way out of a situation: the teacher loves it, but the other students can only roll their eyes.
This quote quiets those big talkers. Do we need excellent speakers? Absolutely! But we need thinkers, as well; and those who speak well, may not always know as much as the quiet introvert sitting nearby. An introvert who may have the best idea in the room, but can’t seem to share it over the loud talkers in the same room.
