Quiet by Susan Cain

A fascinating read centred around the prevalence of the Culture of Personality versus the Culture of Character. Made me think about how people like Trump and the Kardashians rise to positions of power and influence. Made me realise that my exhaustion by end of play on Friday and complete lack of interest in socialising after work come from my ambivert nature – my job and the need to be sociable and perky with colleagues and clients leaves me mentally exhausted by the end of the working week. Made me think about how I protect myself from this when I go back to work.

And how Andy and I can work on finding a balance between our needs for quiet time and socialising
