Not About Teaching an Introvert to Become an Extrovert

We can each look at a beach and one of us will see the shoreline, another will notice the ripples in the waves, and another the clouds in the sky. It always amazes me how we can have the same experience—yet experience it so differently. That’s one of the reasons I enjoy reading book reviews. And when the reviews are about my own book, Self-Promotion for Introverts®, it can feel weirdly intimate yet oddly welcome when strangers share how my writing reaches them.

One such stranger is Timothy T.C. So, a Ph.D. candidate in psychology at the University of Cambridge Department of Psychiatry, who just reviewed my book for the Positive Psychology News Daily. His insights include:

  1. “Ancowitz doesn’t only offer knowledge from her own thoughts. She also gathers wisdom from different introverts and extroverts sharing their insights throughout the book….
  2. “Though the book is designed for workplace, Ancowitz’s advice is also applicable to life in general – how to get the most out of short conversations, how to deal with extroverted friends, and how to restructure goals and strategies in line with one’s own personal needs and strengths….
  3. “One important thing to note is that the book is not about teaching an introvert to become an extrovert….”

So adds: “If you want to promote yourself authentically, you’ll need to have thorough reflections on yourself. You’ll need to understand and embrace your strengths, and try to make full use of strengths come into full play. This aligns closely with the doctrines of positive psychology.”
