Introverts at Ease: Nancy Okerlund

Depending on who you listen to, introverts make up 25-50% of the U.S. population, or between 80 and 160 million people. That's a lot of self aware folks with strong powers of observation, concentration and focus. But many of us don't feel strong or energetic, and even wonder if there's something wrong with us. Some of us don't even realize we're introverts. The latest research shows that introverts are hardwired differently, with specific energy and lifestyle needs that sometimes conflict with those of extroverts. It's not about becoming more extroverted; it's about allowing yourself to think and behave in ways more suitable to being an introvert in an extroverted culture. Introvert expert Nancy Okerlund captures the essence of the introvert dilemma, and provides realistic strategies and techniques to help you create a more energized and fulfilling life.
