Quiet: The power of introverts in a world that can’t stop talking

quiet1Nie som faninka self-help knižiek a vecí, ktoré niečím podobným zaváňajú. Takže o tejto knihe som síce vedela už nejaký čas, ale veľmi ma nelákala. Ale potom ju na SOS odporučili ďalší dvaja zaujímaví ľudia, tak som si povedala, že ju teda prečítam.

Hovorí o tom, ako v dnešnom svete viac dáme na extrovertov, o tom, že to tak vždy nebolo, o tom, ako sa to zmenilo a prečo. A o tom, čo s tým môžu introverti robiť. Rozoberá školy, pracoviská, domácnosti (prečítala som si pár strán aj o svojom manželstve, ale Susan Cain píše aj o vzťahoch rodičov a detí, ktorí sú na rôznych miestach introvert-extrovert spektra).

Nie je to žiadny univerzálny návod, ale môže to byť pomerne oslobodzujúce čítanie. Knihu som už podarovala ďalej.

Don’t think of introversion as something that needs to be cured.

Introverts, in contrast, may have strong social skills and enjoy parties and business meetings, but after a while wish they were home in their pajamas. They prefer to devote their social energies to close friends, colleagues, and family. They listen more than they talk, think before they speak, and often feel as if they express themselves better in writing than in conversation. They tend to dislike conflict. Many have a horror of small talk, but enjoy deep discussions.

It’s as if they have thinner boundaries separating them from other people’s emotions and from the tragedies and cruelties of the world.

top 10 sexist comments in politics

if you know someone who doesn’t believe sexism exists, show them this

Angelina Jolie v OSN:

I will never forget the survivors I’ve met, or what they told me. The mother in Goma, whose five-year-old daughter had been raped outside a police station in plain view. Or the Syrian woman I met in Jordan last week, who asked I hide her name and face, because she knew that if she spoke out against the crimes against her, she would be attacked and possibly killed.

Rape is a tool of war. It is an act of aggression and a crime against humanity. The numbers are so vast, and the numbers so painful, that we often have to stop to remember that, behind each number is someone with a name, a personality, a story, and dreams no different from ours and those of our children.

I understand that there are many things that are difficult for the UN Security Council to agree on, but sexual violence in conflict should not be one of them. That it is a crime to rape young children is not something I imagine anyone in this room would not be able to agree on.

The rights and wrongs of this issue are straightforward, and the actions that need to be taken have been identified. What is needed is political will. And that is what is being asked of your countries today: To act on the knowledge of what is right and what is unjust, and to show the determination to do something about it.
