Are you familiar with Susan Cain's book, Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World that Can't Stop Talking? I read it last year and find myself still referring back to it often. The book prompted an article in TIME Magazine titled, The Power of Shyness which is worth reading as well. Susan Cain's book discusses how we often undervalue introverts in our society. Sometimes the the traditional school setting is not ideal for this personality type.
At EdNavigators, we prioritize "best-fit" in identifying schools and colleges for students. One of the components of our program is a personality assessment based upon the Meyers Briggs philosophy. Introvert vs. Extrovert is one of the classifications that result from the assessment. Knowing who you are is essential to finding your "best-fit."
